Preview

The Sacramento Kings continue at home and will host the Memphis Grizzlies at the Golden 1 Center on Thursday night. These teams met 3 times last season and the Grizzlies absolutely destroyed the Kings in all of the 3 games.

 

Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies get here with a 3-1 record overall and 1-1 on the road so far this season ranking 2nd in the Southwest Division. They're coming from a win against the Nets 134-124 at home.  Ja Morant and Desmond Bane scored 38 points and 7 assists each. Bane was 14 of 21 overall and 8 of 11 from 3-point range, the eight 3-pointers a career-high. Santi Aldama scored 17 points for Memphis. The 76 points by the Grizzlies guards was the most by a two-player tandem in franchise history.

Ja Morant leads the team averaging 35.3 points and 7 assists for the Grizzlies. Steven Adams is averaging 10 rebounds per game for Memphis.

In their last 10 games the Grizzlies are 5-5, averaging 113.6 points, 52.0 rebounds, 28.3 assists, 9.2 steals and 8.2 blocks per game while shooting 48.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 116.1 points

Sacramento Kings

The Kings have lost their first 3 games of the season and are 0-2 at home. In the 130-125 loss vs Warriors, De'Aaron Fox scored 26 points, his second straight 30-point performance, and Domantas Sabonis added 19 points and 14 rebounds, although he sat out the fourth. The Kings tried 100 shots on Sunday after losing to the Clippers 111-109 at home on Saturday night. The Kings' three losses have all been decided by a combined 14 points.

BETTING TRENDS

Memphis are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against Sacramento.

Memphis are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games against Sacramento.

Memphis are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Memphis' last 5 games when playing on the road against Sacramento.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Sacramento's last 5 games.

Sacramento are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Sacramento's last 10 games against Memphis.

Sacramento are 0-7 SU in their last 7 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Grizzlies will continue to be a very competitive team this season and will be hoping that Dillon Brooks who just returned from the injury list struggled with only 4 points in the last game. The Kings haven't won a game yet but they have faced very tough teams like the Warriors, Blazers and Clippers. They were also dominated by the Grizzlies last season and have lost 6 straight games against them. The Grizzlies are the better team and I expect a better performance from Brooks to help the team to win this game. Take the Grizzlies.

PICK: Grizzlies -2.5 (-110)
