Los Angeles Clippers vs Sacramento Kings 12/31/2019 NBA Spread and Picks
Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Los Angeles Clippers vs Sacramento Kings 12/31/2019 – The Los Angeles Clippers (23-11) and the Sacramento Kings (12-21) will kick off their regular-season series on Tuesday at Golden 1 Center. The Clippers, who are gunning for their 10th straight victory over the Kings, opened as 7-point road favorites in Las Vegas betting lines. The Kings, though, will be trying to end not only the losing woes against the Clippers but also a seven-game losing skid that has buried them in the Western Conference standings.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting
The Los Angeles Clippers have been shaky these past two weeks, dropping four of their last seven games. The Christmas Day win over the Los Angeles Lakers showed the Clips remain elite despite the inconsistencies, but there’s no doubt there are still moving parts to make before this team can reach their full potential. Against the Kings, the Clippers have been super dominant as they won their last nine head-to-head matchups.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (25.6 PPG, 7.8 RPG and 5.1 APG)
Sacramento Kings Betting
The Sacramento Kings’ playoff chances are slowly fading away following a series of setbacks that exposed the team’s chemistry under the tutelage of head coach Luke Walton. Sunday’s 120-115 loss to the Denver Nuggets added another chapter to the Kings’ frustrating season, as Sacramento ran out of gas down to the final minutes of the game. Nemanja Bjelica scored 27 points, Buddy Hield tallied 20 and De’Aaron Fox recorded 18 points and 13 dimes in a losing effort.
Players to Watch: Buddy Hield (20.2 PPG, 5.0 RPG and 3.0 APG)

Los Angeles Clippers vs Sacramento Kings Betting Picks
The Los Angeles Clippers will be tested now that they lost the service of Patrick Beverley for still an undetermined number of games. Bookmakers are still high on the Clips winning Tuesday’s game since the Kings have been on a free-fall the past three weeks.
Moneyline: This is the first time these two teams play each other this season. The Clippers should be the wiser pick here since they are 20-6 this season when entering a game as favorites.
ATS: A 7-point handicap won’t prevent the Clippers from taking another ATS win. I see Paul George and Kawhi Leonard putting up another big game performance. Also, expect Lou Williams to produce more now that Beverley is on the shelf with an injury.
TOTALs: The total opened at 220 points. The Clippers have been a good offensive team this season at 115 points per game, while the Kings have not been bad either at 105 points per game. I pick OVER.
Score Prediction: 120 – 110 Clippers
