5 unit picks (1-3)
14 points may be a bit much for this game. This game opened around 11.5 and now it's gone up to 14. This could be partially due to the return of Paul George, though he may be on a minutes restriction. The Kings are also coming off a Back2Back where they lost by 20 points at home to the Thunder. The Kings are playing their 3rd game in 4 days. Clippers even beat them earlier at Sacramento 105-87. I understand the desire to back the Clippers here, especially coming off a nice few days of rest. But 14 points is a bit too much! Some trends working for the Kings are that they are 12-7 ATS as road dogs. They are 15-10 ATS on the road. They are 7-3 ATS with a rest disadvantage. At 11.5 I would have stayed away, but at 14, I'm taking the Kings and the points.
