The Los Angeles Lakers are playing better basketball lately, but they're not to the point where I'm trying to lay decent sized chalk with them on the road. The Sacramento Kings are playing very good basketball, shocking everybody who thought they would be one of the worst teams in the league again. While it may change at some point later in the year, we're probably getting the better team right now and free points at home. I'm not sure how you can see these two teams through the first few weeks of the season and turn down the Kings and free points.
