The 4-11 Sacramento Kings will be on the back end of a back to back when they face the 9-6 LA Clippers in an NBA pro basketball game on Saturday night. Kick off time from Staples Center in Los Angeles is scheduled for 10:30PM Eastern Time with national television coverage provided by NBA League Pass Channel.
A check of the NBA odds has the home team LA Clippers favored by -11 ½ points with an over under line of 197 points. When the NBA line came out for this game a few hours ago it was the Clippers favored by -10 ½ points with the total at 197 ½ points. We have seen a 1 point move on the Clippers and a ½ point move on the under. Trend: LA Clippers are 0-5 ATS in their past five games.
During the lockout shortened season last year the Clippers won and covered the spread in all three meetings.
The Kings are still looking for their first road win as they sit at 0-5 straight up on the young season. The team has lost two straight including a 97-92 home defeat last night to Indiana as a +1 ½ point underdog. This Kings team has struggled offensively on the season averaging just 94 points and hits on 44.1% of their shots.
The Clippers broke a four game losing streak by defeating Minnesota on Wednesday 101-95 as a -9 point favorite. A much better defensive effort by the Clippers as they allow the Timberwolves just 37.8% shooting. That was with Kevin Love in the lineup. Chauncey Billups made his season debut with the Clippers and contributed with 7 points on 1 of 5 shooting. This is a scary game for Clippers backers here as they have looked their worst this season against bad teams and looked their best against the elite teams from the NBA. LA has shot well this season making 47 1/2% of their shots this season.
