The Kings are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. The Lakers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The over is 5-2 in Kings last 7 road games. The under is 4-1 in Lakers last 5 Tuesday games. The Kings are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles.

I'm not thrilled with this matchup and the Sacramento Kings haven't been good in the underdog role where they lose by an average of 7.2 points. However, the Los Angeles Lakers are a team I've said time and time again I'm not looking to lay big chalk with until they get their act together. A few wins last week doesn't move the needle much. The Lakers still lose at home by an average of 0.6 points, and they're 7-15 against the spread at home. Give me the Kings and the points, as I'm not siding with the Lakers in the big favorite role.
