Spread: Los Angeles Lakers +1.5
Los Angeles Lakers have a 31-41 record (27-43-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the West. They have lost 10 of their last 11 matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Nets with a 106-111 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by LeBron James with 27.4 ppg, adding 8.1 dimes and a team high 8.5 boards per game. He is followed by Kyle Kuzma with 18.5 ppg and 5.6 boards per game.
Sacramento Kings have a 36-36 record (42-29-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the West. They have won three of their last four matches and in their last game they won at home against the Suns with a 112-103 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 20.9 ppg, adding 5.2 boards per game. He is followed by De’Aaron Fox with 17.5 ppg, 3.7 boards and a team high 7.3 dimes per game.
In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Lakers lead the Kings 2-1 wins, having won the previous home game with a 121-114 score. Lakers have a 18-17 home record, while the Kings are 13-21 on the road. Kings are better offensively, scoring 114.1 ppg to Lakers’ 11.1.7 ppg, while Lakers are better defensively, allowing 114 ppg to Kings’ 114.7 ppg. Lakers have a better field goal percentage (47.1% to 46.4%), while Kings have a better 3-point percentage (37.4% to 33%). Kings are better in dimes made (25.5 to 25.1) and in turnovers committed (13.3 to 15.2), while Lakers are better in boards grabbed (46.2 to 45.7). Kings are the favorite against a struggling Lakers team and Vegas odds give them a -1.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the road win.
