The Kings are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Wizards are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a home favorite. The over is 11-4 in Kings last 15 overall. The over is 4-1 in Wizards last 5 overall. The Kings are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Washington.

I’m not running to the window to back either of these teams, but if forced to pick, the Wizards have shown more signs of life over the last month and are at home. The Sacramento Kings still don’t play a lick of defense and they lose on the road by an average of 5.7 points while allowing 48.3 percent shooting from the field. The Kings are 9-13 against the spread when an underdog of seven or less points. I’ll side with the Wizards and the reasonable chalk.
