The Lakers have defeated the Kings in 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams but they have not had quite that much success versus the basketball betting odds.
Basketball betting trends show that the Lakers and Kings have split their last ten meetings against the spread. This year though, the Lakers are 0-3 against the NBA betting pointspread against the Kings even though they won two of the three straight up. The Lakers won 112-103 and 118-108 at home versus the Kings but lost 113-101 at Sacramento as basketball betting results show. That loss was a rare one for the Lakers, especially at Sacramento where they had won the previous five games. Los Angeles is 4-1 both straight up and against the basketball odds in their last five games at Sacramento.
The Lakers have actually been pretty good on the road this season versus the basketball betting pointspread. The basketball betting odds are more reasonable on L.A. games on the road and the Lakers have made gamblers money in road games. At home it is another story as the Lakers are almost always overpriced in basketball betting lines. Los Angeles has a top five offense that can cover basketball betting numbers on the road.
The Kings have been poor at home this season versus the basketball betting pointspread. They have a horrible defense that is next to last in the league as NBA betting numbers show and their offense is nothing special. In fact, they are much weaker offensively than they were earlier this season and it has hurt their ability to cover the basketball betting pointspread.
Eight of the last ten games between the two teams have sailed over the basketball odds including the last four. The Lakers have an excellent offense while Sacramento plays little defense so it makes sense that the games would be high scoring. Even though all three games have gone over the basketball betting total this season, it wasn’t by much. The last two just barely cleared the NBA betting totals of 214 and 211.5.
