The Lakers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Kings are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Lakers are 3-8-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings, the road team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.

The Lakers are on the end of a back to back and did spend a lot of energy making a comeback to beat the Chicago Bulls, but they're still a better basketball team than the Sacramento Kings. The Lakers are finding ways to win games and the Kings are being outscored by 15 points in their last five contests. The Kings are rested and at home, which are things I usually favor in toss-up matchups, but the Lakers are actually winning, something we can't say about Sacramento. Give me LA on the road.
