BETTING TRENDS

Sacramento are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.

Sacramento are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against LA Clippers.

LA Clippers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of LA Clippers' last 7 games.

Prediction

The Clippers have already clinched the play-in-berth and they have nothing to play for on this game but Paul George and Normal Powell need to keep playing as both have just returned from injuries. The Kings have also nothing to play for here as they're eliminated and are without Fox and Sabonis. Expect the Clippers to dominate the Kings and win this game easy.

PICK: Clippers -11.5 (-110)
