NBA: OVER 50/50
- Title : NBA: OVER 50/50
After a string of 10 straight losses to the Clippers, the Kings have now beaten them two straight. This is relevant because the Over is 9-0 when L.A. is a favorite with less than two days rest off a win as a favorite when it lost two straight against its opponent. The Clippers have scored 130-plus in each of their last three games in this spot. As for the Kings, I see that the Over is 14-0 when they are underdog with rest off a home game that had at least eight lead changes. You have to take the over here
Sacramento Kings - Los Angeles Clippers Over 226,5
Los Angeles has looked like the much better basketball team up to this point so I think that this spread is a bit low. The Clippers have won four of their first six road games while Sacramento has split its first eight home games so I think that home-court advantage will not play a factor in this matchup. Plus, Los Angeles has won each of its last two games while Sacramento has lost three of its last four games so I think that the Clippers are in much better form at this point in time. They also have much more talent.
In this matchup between two of the bottom five defenses in the NBA, take the over and don’t think twice. The Kings can’t stop anyone on defense, and the Clippers have been surprisingly bad on that end too. The Kings are eighth in the NBA in pace, and I expect them to try and push the tempo against a Clippers team that wants to play slowly with Leonard. Recent trends show that the Kings have been an over machine, and I feel confident about this continuing.
There is no guarantee for this OVER game so use your own discetion!
