LINE MOVEMENT

The spread opened where it currently is, while the total has dropped from 210.5. The line can be found at -11.5 at other books, while the total is 210 at various books.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Tuesday afternoon, 64 percent of public bets are coming in on the Trail Blazers. Online wager info also states that 66 percent of bets are on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Sacramento guard Garrett Temple sat out the last game with a back injury and is questionable to play tonight. For the Trail Blazers, shooting guard CJ Wilcox has been rehabbing from knee surgery in the G League and it is unknown when he will return.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Kings have won of the slowest paces of play in the NBA and are playing on the second leg of a back-to-back after losing 118-100 at home last night versus the Timberwolves. That is actually the exact same score as when Portland defeated the Kings earlier this season at Sacramento. Despite its pace, the Kings are actually 33-26-1 on overs this season since their offense has struggled plenty. Against a strong defensive team like the Blazers, I believe those struggles will show again on the offensive end with fatigue setting in. Look for Portland to grab the lead and coast to a victory to keep this total under. The under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
