LAKERS KEY TRENDS: The Lakers have covered the spread in four of their last five games overall and are 4-1 at the window in their last five games coming off a loss. They've been solid against Western Conference foes as well, going 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games versus conference rivals but they have struggled to cover on the road, going 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games away from Staples Center.

KINGS KEY TRENDS: The Kings are 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four home games and are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games versus Western Conference foes. They're also 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven home games versus a team with a losing road record but are just 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

OUR PREDICTION: Neither of these teams play efficient defense and they can both score so it makes sense to grab the points with the Lakers. The Kings rank 23rd in defensive efficiency this season while the Lakers rank 21st, plus Los Angeles has been more efficient on offense. The Kings have the advantage being at home but the Lakers are 13-6-1 against the spread in their last 20 games in Sacramento and the road team has covered in four of the last five meetings between these two teams. The Lakers are a live dog tonight.
