Clippers at Kings OddsShark Matchup Report

Los Angeles Clippers

In a league dominated by superstars, the Clippers are finding success without one. Tobias Harris, Danilo Gallinari, Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell are all averaging over 15 points per game while none of them are averaging over 22.

Opting for depth over star power, Los Angeles is off to a strong start to the season, challenging for first place in the Western Conference.

The Clippers are 23-4 SU and 16-11-1 ATS in 27 games against the Kings since 2012 per the OddsShark NBA Database. Los Angeles has won 11 straight games in Sacramento and is 7-4 ATS over that stretch.

Sacramento Kings

Sacramento wrapped up the month of October with a 5-0 SU and ATS run that included four straight outright upset wins. But since that surge, the Kings have come crashing back down to earth with a 4-7 SU and 5-5-1 ATS record over their last 11 games.

Overall, Sacramento is now 10-10 SU and 12-7-1 ATS on the season with a 5-4 SU record at home. The Kings are 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games as a home underdog including five outright upsets.

Thursday night’s total is set at 235 points. The OVER is 6-0 in Sacramento’s last six games.

Time will tell whether the Clippers’ no-superstar approach will work over the long run of the regular season or in the postseason. But heading into Wednesday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles was averaging 116.8 points per game, good for fourth best in the NBA.

Sacramento isn’t far behind on offense ranking seventh in the league with 114.2 points per game, and both of these teams rank in the bottom 10 in scoring defense. Points should not be too difficult to come by in this one.
