NBA Betting Trends
The Kings are just 2-7 against the spread in their last nine road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five division games.
The Clippers have failed to cover in four straight home games, but are 20-6 ATS in their last 26 division games.
The Kings aren’t a road team I can trust. They did edge the Grizzlies and the Pistons over the last few weeks, but Los Angeles is a winning team and Sacramento has struggled against them on the road. The Clippers will be excited to return home from a four-game road trip that went well. They can build a little momentum and try to climb up the standings right now. The Clippers have won and covered in both meetings with the Kings this season and I think it happens again today.
