The Kings are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 16-7-1 in Kings last 24 overall. The under is 12-5 in Trail Blazers last 17 Wednesday games. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings should be obvious big favorites, as they're comfortably the better team and have been great as favorites. The Portland Trail Blazers have shutdown Lillard and they're getting waxed most nights. However, the Kings are all but locked into the third seed, so there's not a ton of motivation and this will be just the fourth time they're double-digit favorites this season. Massive number for a road team. It's Trail Blazers or pass for me.
