Los Angeles Lakers vs Sacramento Kings Odds and Prediction: Recent Form
The Los Angeles Lakers, the 2020 NBA champion, the team has been playing a disappointing game of basketball in the preseason. With the addition of All-stars, former MVPS’s and Veterans, the whole Laker roster has changed.
Only having 4 players from the 2020 winning season squad Lakers have stirred the roster quite a bit. The addition of Russel Westbrook from the Washington Wizards gives the Lakers the best betting odds to win the whole thing. They are the number 1 contenders to win the title.
‘360’ is the nickname of the new Trio formed in the western conference, Anthony Davis (3), Lebron James (6), Russel Westbrook (0). Other key players such as Carmelo Anthony, Kendrick Nunn, Trevor Ariza were added to the Lakers Organization. Dwight Howard also came back to the Lakers after playing 1 season with the Philadelphia 76ers. The whole roster has the highest cumulative aged (Average) players.
Veterans like Rajan Rondo and DeAndre Jordan have also joined the organization. This makes the Lakers a dangerous team yet their performance in the preseason has been not up to the mark. People expect a lot from the Lakers after their exit in the first round of the 2021 playoffs. They are currently 0-5 in the preseason which was unexpected as the Lakers are playing with their star power.
Frank Vogel needs to change this as the regular season is coming up. Laker Nation wants the King to add a ring to his legacy, want Russ and Melo to win their 1st rings, and want the organization to surpass all-time rival franchise Boston Celtics by winning another championship.
Sacramento Kings are on a roll winning 3 out of 3 games in the preseason. They came over the Suns, the Clippers, and the Trail Blazers winning over with good margins.
Their last win against Portland came with a combined effort of Davion Mitchell who managed to get 20 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds, and Terence Davis who got 17 points,2 assists, 3 rebounds where the Kings won 107-93.
The Kings are a dark horse to look out for in the regular season with young talents like Buddy Hield, Davion Mitchell and DeAaron Fox this team can give major upsets during the season.
