I understand the Portland Trail Blazers are on the end of a back to back, but this line is wild disrespectful. The Sacramento Kings are complete dog water, losing four straight games and just blowing a game on Monday against a G League 76ers team. The Kings are losing their last five games by an average of 6.6 points, and they lose by an average of 7.9 points as an underdog. I'm not backing the Kings for anything. The Trail Blazers and small chalk here feels way too easy.
