Thunder at Kings: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Kings 108, Thunder 95

Money line (ML)

It is clear the Thunder have packed it in, having lost 20 of their last 21 games. The Kings have won four of their last five contests and have an outside chance of getting up to the Western Conference’s 10 seed and the play-in games.

The line isn’t such for much value, but take the KINGS (-450).

Against the spread (ATS)

The Kings are 5-3 ATS in their last eight games. The Thunder are 3-6 ATS in their last nine.

Based on how the Thunder played the last two games in Golden State, the Thunder aren’t trying much. The Kings picked up a 4-point win in Oklahoma City May 4 but did not cover the spread. This time they will. Take the KINGS -9.5 (-110).

Over/Under (O/U)

The Kings’ last five games all went Under the projected total. The Thunder scored 99 or fewer points in five of their last six games. The Kings are averaging 106.1 points in their last six games.

Take UNDER 222.5 (-110).
