NBA Betting Trends
The Clippers are 0-4 ATS in their last four Thursday games. Los Angeles is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
The Kings are 6-0 ATS in their last six Thursday games. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
Rest is so instrumental in basketball and the fact is the Kings are coming into this game with plenty of it after not playing since Sunday. They weren't playing the best basketball the previous two games, but this is a good bounceback spot against a Clippers team on the second end of a back-to-back. While Los Angeles has been red-hot, I still don't know if I see them above a fifth or sixth seed in the stacked Western Conference. Expect regression at some point. Take the points with the more rested Kings at home.
