The Kings are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Hornets last 7 overall. The over is 45-22 in Kings last 67 overall. The Hornets are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Sacramento and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings have done nothing over the last two weeks to deserve being favored, as they've lost nine of their last 10 games, and are losing their last five games by an average of 9.2 points while allowing 52.3 percent shooting from the field. The Charlotte Hornets are an inconsistent young team, but they've had much better results than the Kings and only lose in the underdog role by an average of 1.2 points. We're getting a free bucket with the team in better form. I'll take it.
