The Kings are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. NBA Northwest. The Thunder are 6-20-1 ATS in their last 27 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The under is 9-1 in the last 10 meetings.
The Kings have either won or lost 11 of their last 13 games by single digits. It's not like the Thunder are playing great right now, and they've been horrible against the spread pretty much all year. I don't have a ton of confidence in the Kings, but I'm not leaving this many points on the table.
