Kings vs. Lakers Pick

NBA Predictions: Can Kings record road win at Lakers? 1/9/18

Are the Sacramento Kings the right play for bettors tonight at 10:30PM ET when they battle the host Los Angeles Lakers?

Who Oddsmakers Like: According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Lakers are a 7-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 213 points. Los Angeles opened as a 6.5-point favorite, while the total has risen from 211 points.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Tuesday afternoon, 56 percent of public bets have been placed on the Lakers.

Injury Report: Kings point guard George Hill is not injured, but will be away from the team tonight to be with his wife for the birth of his child. Frank Mason is out another week with a heel contusion. Harry Giles is targeting an early February return from surgery on both knees. Los Angeles has no injuries to report.

Who the Trends Like: Sacramento is 5-1 ATS in its last six meetings in Los Angeles. The under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings and 4-0 in the last four meetings in Los Angeles.

Who We Like: Neither team has played particularly well lately, although with Hill out of the lineup the last two games the Kings did win at Denver and lose by only seven at home to San Antonio. Meanwhile, the Lakers ended their nine-game losing streak with a blowout win over the Hawks. I still don't trust that LA's roster and coaching staff is on the same page. Minutes are constantly fluctuating and there is no semblance of consistency. I like De'Aaron Fox and Willie Cauley-Stein to have big games tonight for Sacrament as it covers a spread that feels a bit too wide.
