The Line: Sacramento Kings -4.5 -- Over/Under: 208.5 See the Latest Odds
The Los Angeles Lakers travel to the Golden 1 Center to take on the Sacramento Kings on Thursday night.
The Lakers will be looking to bounce back after having their three-game win streak snapped by the Mavericks in a 109-97 on Tuesday night. Jordan Clarkson led the team with 22 points off the bench, Nick Young added 20 points while Julius Randle had 15 points with 10 rebounds, but it still wasn't enough to get past the Mavericks who were playing without key starters in Dirk Nowitzki and Deron Williams. As a team, the Lakers shot 48.7 percent from the field but they shot themselves in the foot with a total of 17 turnovers which really hurt them down the stretch. With the loss, Los Angeles drops to 4-4 on the season and 3-1 at home.

Meanwhile, the Kings will be aiming for a third straight win after taking down the winless Pelicans by 102-94 on Tuesday night. DeMarcus Cousins led from the front with 28 points on 11 of 20 shooting, Rudy Gay chipped in with 21 points while Arron Afflalo added 15 points as the Kings jumped all over the Pelicans early and never trailed. Darren Collison returned to the court after serving his eight-game suspension and contributed with nine points and four assists in 28 minutes off the bench. Sacramento is now 4-5 overall and 2-1 at home.
In ATS trends, the Lakers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games, while the Kings are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four home games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games against a team with a losing road record.
Head to head, the Lakers are 1-6-1 ATS in the last eight meetings overall and 13-6-1 ATS in the last 20 meetings in Sacramento.
The Lakers were looking good until Tuesday's loss to the Mavs, but I'm sticking with the Kings to win and cover at home as they're growing in confidence and back at full strength now that Collison has returned.
