Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies are coming off from back-to-back wins over the Washington Wizards and the latest was the Portland Trail Blazers before the NBA All-Star break. If it was not for the defeat against the Philadelphia 76ers, this team could have been on a five-game winning streak. On the road, the Grizzlies are 12-13 and they hope to even it out after this game. Ja Morant is the leading candidate for the 2020 NBA Rookie of the Year honors and he has provided the team with 17.6 points and 7.1 assists while Jaren Jackson pairs him up well with 17.1 points and 4.8 rebounds a game.

Sacramento Kings Betting
In contrast, the Sacramento Sacramento Kings have lost their last two games and they look to bounce back after a long rest. Their three-game winning streak was snapped by Milwaukee Bucks then lost to the Dallas Mavericks. The Kings have lost 15 of their 26 home games and if they want to turn the tide, they will need Buddy Hield and DeAaron Fox to come out with guns blazing while Harrison Barnes is an x-factor for this team if they want to win more games. Currently, the Kings are third to the last in the NBA Western Conference with a record of 21-33 for the season.
