The Lakers lost in triple overtime to the Kings in the previous meeting but did find a way to bounce back with a narrow win over the Detroit Pistons a few nights ago. The Kings were the opposite as they fell down after the huge win over the Lakers and lost to the Memphis Grizzlies right after. Will the Kings be able to beat the Lakers twice in three games?

Lakers vs. Kings NBA Betting Odds

The Lakers are just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games out on the road. They are also just 1-3-1 ATS in their past five when playing on the road against a team with a win percentage of less than .400 on the season. Los Angeles has lost their last five games against the spread when coming into the matchup on just a single day of rest on top of that.

The Kings are 4-1-1 when playing at home in their last six games against teams with a losing road record. Sacramento has lost nine of their last 12 games against the spread overall though. They are 1-5 ATS in their past six games at home.

Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers have struggled for a number of reasons. Health is the biggest, but their lack of a true center is really hurting them right now. Anthony Davis can play center but rarely ever does, leaving Dwight Howard and DeAndre Jordan to share starter and bench reps at the five. Both of those players have been average, at best, this year as they each near the end of their respective careers. Davis will have to transition back to the five at some point this season or the Lakers will continue to struggle. It also doesn’t help that Davis is shooting 20.5 percent from behind the arc either. That’s a six-percent drop from last season. With the front court issues persisting, this team is lacking all sorts of balance.

Sacramento Kings

With Luke Walton out as head coach, the Kings have started to change up their rotation a bit. That change has allowed Marvin Bagley to find his way on the court again. He hasn’t wasted his opportunity, totaling 13 points, seven rebounds and four assists in the Kings last game against the Lakers a few nights ago. Sacramento has a lot of backcourt talent with De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield and Tyrese Haliburton, but they desperately need consistent play from a center not named Richaun Holmes. Bagley has the potential to be that guy and could yet again be the boost that gets this team past the Lakers for the second time in three games.
