BETTING ANALYSIS:

The betting angle of this game flipped overnight as it was announced that Los Angles Lakers star LeBron James would not be suiting up for Wednesday’s game in Sacramento. What was looking like would be an easy opportunity for Los Angeles to split a back-to-back, has turned into a chance for Sacramento to get back into the win column after an all-time bad beat on Sunday vs Charlotte.

Without LBJ and AD, the Lakers will surely struggle to find offense. Last season without LeBron, the Lakers found mixed results going 2-2 without their floor general, so look to their veteran reserves to take a step up for the absent superstars. Expect big performances out of Dennis Schroder, Talen Horton-Tucker, and notorious “Kings Killer” Montrezl Harrell.

On the Sacramento side, they come into tonight’s game relatively more healthy than their opponents with the notable exception of Tyrese Haliburton. It was announced yesterday, the Kings rookie will miss the remaining stretch of games pre-All-Star break. The Kings come into tonight’s game looking like they should have the upper hand, as long as they take care of business (i.e. not give up a career high to anyone).

It’s a dangerous place to be when you have financial implications riding on the Kings success….especially to play the under….not an easy way to make your winning for sure…but the overwhelming circumstances are just too big to ignore. I like the under play here even with the Kings having a HISTORICALLY BAD defense. It seems crazy to bet that they will contain anyone under 120 points, but this might be the worst offense the Kings face this season. I see Los Angeles leaning heavily on their top-tier defense and trying to slow the game down to muck it up to try and keep the score close and low scoring.
