Buddy Hield is averaging 20.4 points and five rebounds while De’Aaron Fox is averaging 19.7 points and seven assists.

The Los Angeles Clippers need a win after losing three of their last four games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 115.9 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 110.3 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 27.2 points and 7.5 rebounds while Paul George is averaging 21.7 points and 3.9 assists.

The Kings are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in L.A and 1-8 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The over is 5-0-1 in the last 6 meetings in L.A and 6-2-1 in the last 9 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings are finally starting to string wins together, and they're a profitable 16-12 ATS on the road. The Los Angeles Clippers have not only lost three of their last four games, but they're expected to be without PG13 and Pat Beverley. You're just never sure which Clippers team is going to show up. The Sacramento Kings are also 3-1 ATS as a double-digit underdog. Give me the points, even if I don't love this bet either way.
