3* NBA *Crunch Time Bailout* on Kings +6
Motivated by 5 consecutive defeats and further fueled by a 13-point road loss to the Lakers Nov. 11, expect the Kings to show up in a big way tonight. The Kings went 2-0 at home against the Lakers last season so they won't be lacking any confidence either.

The Lakers are one of the most overvalued teams in the NBA, and they have especially been overvalued against losing teams. They are just 8-22 ATS in their last 30 games versus a team with a losing record as a result. They are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400 and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games versus a team with a losing home record.

The Lakers have been a poor investment on the road. They are just 13-27 ATS in all road games dating back to the beginning of last season, including 1-5 ATS in their last 6.

It also bodes well for us that they played last night as they are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games when their starting 5 players combine for more than 160 minutes the previous day. Take the Kings.
