The Los Angeles Lakers play host to the Sacramento Kings at the Staples Center on Friday night.

The Sacramento Kings have been in a funk lately as they’ve lost eight of their past 10 games, but they will be hoping to build some momentum after putting a stop to a four-game slide with a 125-121 home win over the Trailblazers on Wednesday. Buddy Hield led the team in scoring with 22 points off the bench, De’Aaron Fox added 21 points with six assists on eight of 13 shooting while Harrison Barnes chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Kings shot 52 percent from the field and 12 of 33 from the 3-point line as they fell behind early despite pouring in 69 points in the first half, before escaping with the narrow win behind Hield and Mitchell who came up big down the stretch.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers have cooled off recently with four losses in their last six games, but they will be eager to build some momentum after outlasting the Pacers in a 124-116 overtime road win on Wednesday. LeBron James led the team with 39 points and six assists on 13 of 29 shooting, Russell Westbrook added 20 points with seven rebounds and five assists while Malik Monk chipped in with 17 points off the bench. As a team, the Lakers shot 44 percent from the field and 15 of 37 from the 3-point line as they struggled for most of the game and trailed by as many as 12 points, before forcing overtime where they held the Pacers to just four points to escape with the much-needed win.

Looking at the betting trends, the Kings are 13-5 ATS in their last 18 road games, 1-5 ATS in their last six games against a team with a losing record and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Lakers are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games, 5-13-1 ATS in their last 19 games against a team with a losing record and 7-16 ATS in their last 23 games overall.

Head to head, the under is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings in Los Angeles, the Kings are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall and the Kings are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Los Angeles.

Harrison Barnes and Richaun Holmes are both listed as questionable for this one, so the Kings could be shorthanded here. The Lakers have their own injury concerns as they are sweating on the availability of LeBron James for this one. I like the Lakers to take the win in this one, but the Kings are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Los Angeles and I think they can keep this one close till the end.
