BETTING TRENDS

Sacramento are 0-10 SU in their last 10 games.

Sacramento are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against LA Lakers.

Sacramento are 1-10 SU in their last 11 games against LA Lakers.

Sacramento are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.

Sacramento are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against LA Lakers.

LA Lakers are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of LA Lakers' last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of LA Lakers' last 5 games against Sacramento.

 

Prediction

The Kings are the #1 offense in the league but they'll be without one of their best players in Domantas Sabonis for this game. The Lakers have played well but had a couple of tough losses against the 76ers and the Mavs. They will be playing on b2b games so there's a chance that they rest Lebron for this game so I'd take the Kings before that happens.

PICK: Kings +3.5 (-110)
