The Sacramento Kings host the Los Angeles Lakers in a battle between in-state rivals at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Los Angeles is favored by five points at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is set at 227 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NBA odds page). 

Before making any Lakers vs. Kings picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $10,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 7 of the 2021-22 NBA season up over $1,500 on all top-rated NBA picks this season. It's also on a stunning 117-77 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread that dates back to last season. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows the Lakers are strong in a few key areas. Los Angeles is shooting 46 percent from the floor, a top-10 mark in the NBA, and the Lakers are in the top seven of the NBA in free-throw attempts (22 per game), assists (24.5 per game) and fast-break points (15.6 per game). Los Angeles is also potent near the rim, averaging 46.6 points per game in the paint, and the Lakers are averaging 6.0 blocked shots per game. The Kings are vulnerable defensively, and the Lakers should be in an advantageous position.

The model also knows the Kings have offensive strengths to lean on against the Lakers. Sacramento is averaging 23.2 free-throw attempts per game, No. 2 in the NBA, and the Kings are putting up 49.6 points per game in the paint and 14.4 second-chance points per contest. The Kings are also in the top 10 in offensive rebound rate (28.3 percent) and turnover rate (13.8 percent). On defense, the Kings can benefit from the Lakers' lack of ball security, with Los Angeles ranking No. 27 in the NBA in turnovers this season.

Now, it has set its sights on Lakers vs. Kings. We can tell you the model is leaning under the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in over 50 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
