The Line: Sacramento Kings +1 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Washington Wizards invade the Sleep Train Arena to take on the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.
The Wizards have lost three of their last four games and are coming into this game fresh off a 102-94 loss at Golden State. Bradley Beal led the scoring with 17 points while Markieff Morris added 15 points, but the Wizards needed much more from John Wall who scored just eight points with 11 assists as the Wizards started well against the league-best Warriors before fading away in the second half. With the loss, Washington dropped to 36-38 on the season which is currently good for 10th place in the Eastern Conference which leaves them three games out of the eighth spot.

Meanwhile, the Kings have split their last six games but will be looking to bounce back after losing at Portland by 105-93 on Monday. Seth Curry led the team in scoring with 21 points, Omri Casspi added 18 points with five assists while Willie Cauley-Stein had 13 points off the bench but it wasn't enough to get past the playoff-bound Trailblazers but they never really looking to win this game as coach Karl rested Rudy Gay, DeMarcus Cousins, Rajon Rondo and Marco Belinelli and he will likely opt to rest those players again.
In ATS trends, the Wizards are 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games and 0-6 ATS in their last six games playing on zero days rest, while the Kings are 5-1-1 ATS in the last seven games overall and 2-7 ATS in their last nine home games.
Head to head, the home team is 5-0 ATS in the last five meetings and the underdog is 14-5 ATS in the last 19 meetings.
This is a hard game to pick as we don't even know for sure who will be lining up for the Kings as most of the starting lineup was rested in their last game. Assuming that the Kings decide to rest some players again, I'm leaning towards the Wizards who are still a mathematical chance of making the playoffs.
