The Lakers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss. The Kings are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-6-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings overall.
it's the last home game for the Lakers, this is where you expect the team to show up and really fight for a victory. I like the home team and the reasonable chalk.
