Sacramento vs Lakers: prediction for the NBA preseason match
Sacramento got off to a great start in the current season. Luke Walton chose to throw all his best players into the game since the first matches. Of course it is easier to beat opponents, who use rotation, with your best line-up. In the first match Kings beat Phoenix (117:106), then they recorded victories over Clippers (113:98) and Portland (107:93).
But seems like now is the time for some changes. Marvin Bagley will miss the game against Lakers. Maybe some other Kings' players will have a day off.
In the previous preseason match Anthony Davis, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook played for Lakers. But it didn't help the team. A star trio played for more than half of the match, but they failed to earn a victory for Frank Vogel's team. Golden State recorded a 111:99 victory.
Lakers will probably play their star players once again in the match against Sacramento. But Kendrick Nunn, Malik Monk, Wayne Ellington and Talen Horton-Tucker will miss the game.
In 4 out of 7 most recent most recent home games Kings scored no more than 113 points
In 3 out of 4 most recent matches Lakers scored no more than 105 points
Lakers' losing streak is going on for way too long. Lakers lost all four preseason matches. Of course it is a huge blow for Frank Vogel's men. Those matches won't affect the regular season standings, but Lakers wants to beat someone already.
We think that they will be able to do it this time. Kings need to save the energy for the regular season, so they probably won't play at full strength tonight.
Our prediction - Lakers to win with a handicap of (-2) points
Prediction: Handicap (-2) on Lakers

Lakers are not a high-scoring team. They proved that status in preseason matches. In 3 out of 4 most recent games they scored less than 105 points. We are not expecting a high-scoring match.
Our second bet is on total under 220,5 points
