LAKERS KEY TRENDS: The Lakers have been a dreadful team to back at the betting window of late, going 3-12-1 against the spread in their last 16 games overall. They're also just 1-6 against the number in their last seven road games, are winless at 0-7 against the spread in their last seven games versus Western Conference foes and are 0-5 at the window in their last five games coming off a loss.

KINGS KEY TRENDS: The Kings have been highly more profitable for bettors, especially at home where they are 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 games in Sacramento. They're also 8-2 against the number in their last 10 games coming off a loss, are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous contest and are 5-1 at the betting window in their last six games coming off an ATS loss.

OUR PREDICTION: Despite the ugly trends, the Lakers are worth a play tonight because they're slowly getting healthier. Guards D'Angelo Russell and Nick Young returned on Sunday night at home against the Knicks, although the Lakers still lost 118-112 while collapsing down the stretch. While Russell and Young will need to quickly shake off the rust so the Lakers can avoid collapsing even more, we're not taking about a very dominant Sacramento team that L.A. will face tonight. The Kings are just 8-15 on the year and 4-6 at home. Take the points and back a Lakers team that should play hard with several of their key pieces back in the starting lineup.
