The Kings are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Wizards are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Kings are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Washington, 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the favorite is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings aren't winning games and aren't covering, which are the kind of teams you want to fade in this line of work. However, the Wizards aren't exactly lighting it up either, splitting their last 10 games and covering just twice in their last eight at home. This feels like too many points with the hit or miss play Washington has shown up to this point. I'll take the Kings and the free buckets on the road.
