Sacramento Kings Betting
The Kings are hoping to keep their momentum going after defeating the undermanned Golden State Warriors. Though they are practically out for the season, getting as much wins as possible is their consolation. Tasked to lead them on offense is De’Aaron Fox who had a good game against the Dubs. Out to provide help are Harrison Barnes, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Buddy Hield. With points available from mutliple players, the Kings may just pull the rug from under the Grizzlies.

Memphis Grizzlies Betting
Memphis needs a much-needed win to get back on track. Playing at home could help but key players need to step up. Ja Morant and Dillon Brooks need to respond to the challenge, especially with the playoffs just around the corner. Focus needs to be done on defense with the Kings owning multiple players who can score. Allowing Morant, Brooks or even Bogdanovic to get hot could turn the tables on Memphis.
