A Western Conference matchup that appears unbalanced, but actually it is. The Lakers vs Kings are two teams who have had remarkably comparable results, and LeBron James will start the game in his ongoing attempt to break the NBA scoring record. Every game matters in order to keep on winning, move up the standings, and think about the playoffs. There is still a lot of season left, so the teams need to position themselves well.

Predictions, Odds, and Betting Preview for the Los Angeles Lakers vs Sacramento Kings NBA Regular Season Game on December 21, 2022
- Where: Golden 1 Center – Sacramento, California
- When: Wednesday, December 21, 2022, 10:00 PM E.T.
Betting on Los Angeles Lakers
- Season record: 13-16
LeBron James is playing brilliantly, as we have mentioned. He had at least 30 points in both of his games, and in the 119-117 victory over the Wizards, he had 33 points and nine assists. There is one small problem, though: Anthony Davis is injured. Davis carried the club when LeBron was out, but now that King James needs aid, Anthony is unavailable.
Additionally, they will be playing on the road, where the Lakers do much worse. They recently completed a six-game tour in a different arena, winning just two games.Without Davis and with a secondary that just has Russell Westbrook to depend on, Los Angeles doesn’t appear to be as strong.
Betting on Sacramento Kings
- Regular Season Record: 16-12

We informed you at the beginning of this piece that both teams will approach the game in similar situations, and that is indeed the case. The Kings have also now won two straight games, but unlike the Lakers, they are significantly higher in the standings and must win to keep the Suns in sight since they are also breaking their dismal streak.
De’Aaron Fox, who has had a couple of outstanding games lending a hand to Domantas Sabonis, adds a lot of strength to Sacramento’s offense. Fox has scored at least 27 points in two games, and Sabonis is still killing it under the boards.
In the 124-123 win over Toronto, Fox scored 27, dished out 10 assists and Sabonis grabbed 20 rebounds. Against Detroit, 122-113 win, Fox signed 24 units and 9 assists and the Lithuanian had 13 boards. What a fearsome duo.
Although they are similar moments, the Fox/Sabonis duo is performing better than LeBron alone. Without Anthony Davis, who was at a great level, the Lakers suffer a lot and will fall against the Kings. To further help the home team’s case, they are 8-4 at home.
Poor Lakers, they can’t find any stability.
Prediction: Sacramento Kings Spread.
