The last 5 in this series have gone under the total and that’s what I’m on tonight. The Kings themselves are on an under trend since guard Isaiah Thomas was injured going 1-5 on the over/under line. He’s not due back for this matchup and forward Rudy Gay may possibly miss if his wife goes into labor.
Take the UNDER 202.
