The over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Sacramento and the over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.
It's hard to pick the Los Angeles Clippers here, as they're missing pretty much half their team and are on the end of a back to back, so there's only so much you can expect from Lou Williams after dropping 50 last night. However, I don't think anybody is trying to get behind the Sacramento Kings, possibly the worst team in the league. I'll take the Clippers and the small line, but I'm not betting this game personally.
