Kings vs Thunder prediction

Big game for both teams. The Kings are fighting to get out of the play-in tournament, while the Thunder are making a run for the top seed in the west. Monk is still out for the Kings, and Gilgeous-Alexander and Williams are questionable for the Thunder. It's hard to side with the Thunder when you consider they could be down two major players and their top-2 scorers. The Thunder have also been dreadful ATS over the last month, and that includes a 3-7 ATS record in their last 10 games. The Thunder went from being the second most profitable team in the NBA for much of the season to barely a top-10 cover team. The Kings have won 8 of the last 10 games against the Thunder. Give me the Kings and the free bucket.
