Tough call in this game with both teams losing 8 of their last 10 games, but even on the road I have to go with the Lakers. They have been a decent bet as of late on the road and the Kings have lost 3 straight and 5 of their last 6 games. In their last 3 games they only faced one team with a winning record in the Oklahoma City Thunder where they lost by 13 points.
These 2 teams end the regular season in a meeting in L.A. and tonight the Lakers may not win, but they will cover the spread.
