Sacramento Kings vs Los Angeles Clippers Betting Prediction
Sacramento have hit the under in all four of their road games where the hosts have a winning home record and 9-2 ATS in their last 12 games. Los Angeles have hit the under in all six of its previous games against a team that had a losing record on the road.
I predict Los Angeles coming out of the blocks pretty strong tonight and limit the offense of Sacramento. Los Angeles to cover the spread tonight.
Pick: Los Angeles -1.5 (-108)
