The Memphis Grizzlies will be on the road to take on the Sacramento Kings on Sunday, December 26th.
The tip-off is set for 6:00 ET from Golden 1 Center.
Memphis is a 4.5 point favorite in most spots that I have checked. I have seen the total go from 223.5 to 225.5.
The Grizzlies have played pretty well this year and I only feel they will be getting better. For the most part, I have liked what I have seen from them.
This team has lost their last three games in a row. They need to get back on track when they go against a Kings team that is not that good.
Having JA Morant back is huge for this team, even though they were able to play pretty well without him. With that said, it is always a boost to have your best player on the floor.
When it comes to the top teams in the West, I would not quite put this squad in the mix. I still feel they are a solid team, but I would not classify them as elite.
Memphis lost to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday by a score of 113-104. It would have been a statement win for them if they were able to knock off one of the best teams in the league.
In the loss to Golden State, Morant had 21 points and 6 assists. Also, Jaren Jackson Jr. had 20 points and 5 rebounds.
The Kings have not been all that impressive this year. They just have not been able to play at a consistent level this year.
Sacramento comes into this game with a record of 13-20, which puts them in 12th place. It is going to be hard for them to gain any ground in the standings because there are so many good teams in the Western Conference.
This team does have some talent, but I do not feel they have that one player who is a true leader both on and off the court. That can really hurt a ball club, especially one that is young.
Sacramento last played on Wednesday, where they lost to the Los Angeles Clippers by a score of 105-89.
When you score as few points as they did to the Clippers, it is hard to win ball games. They will need to be much better on the offensive side when they face the Grizzlies on Sunday.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Grizzlies are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games.
- The Grizzlies are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games against an opponent in the Western Conference.
- The Kings are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games.
- The Kings are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games at home.
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Analysis:
When these two squads met just a little bit ago, things did not go so great for the Kings. They just need to play a much cleaner ball game on Sunday if they wish to come out with a win.
Even though Memphis is not freaking out, they would still love to end their losing streak. They have a good record at the moment, but if they are not careful, they could slide.
The offense for Sacramento needs to be better than it has been as of late. The way they have played on that side of the ball as of late has not been acceptable.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Kings ATS
Listen, I understand that the Kings have not been playing great as of late, but I do feel they can be a little better in this one. I am not saying they win this game, but I do feel they have the players to compete with a solid Memphis crew.
In this spot, I do not totally trust laying the 4.5 with the Grizzlies. I do not see either team really running away with this one. Ultimately, I feel Memphis will be too much to handle, but I can see Sacramento keeping it within that number.
