The Memphis Grizzlies and Sacramento Kings go head-to-head to close the table Thursday night (October 27).
Memphis picked up where they left off last season as they start this season 3-1. They’ve been electrified offensively but need to figure out a few things on the defensive end of the pitch as the season progresses.
On the other side of the coin, Sacramento has struggled 0-3 out of the box and is one of three teams in the NBA still without a win this season. Their talent is empty and they seem to be going to the NBA draft lottery with a lot of ping-pong balls in their favor.

Memphis Grizzlies vs Sacramento Kings Betting Odds
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Sacramento Kings Best Pick
Ja Morant has been one of the top scorers in the NBA this season, averaging 35.3 points per game. A big reason for that was his electric shooting from the three-point line, as he’s throwing down 60 percent of his three-pointers this season and has 30-plus points in three of his four games this season. With some players injured, he has the fifth-highest call-up rate at 35.8 percent, so the ball is in his hands and that seems far too easy a bet given he’s defended by De’Aaron Fox all night.
Yes Morant scores over 30 points (-145)
These teams are solid on the pitch offensively and weak on the defensive. Looking at pace numbers, Memphis sits sixth this season with a 115.9 offensive rating, while Sacramento sits in 17th place with a 110.7 offensive rating at the start of the season. The Over have scored in each of Sacramento’s last five games, so it seems only right that the Over is the better game in this game as well.
Over 236.5 points (-110)
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Sacramento Kings Prediction
These teams are on opposite sides of the standings and it doesn’t feel like this game is going to be close, but the spread says otherwise. The Grizzlies are set to win games now, while the combination of De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis won’t be enough to win with a weaker bench.
The Memphis Grizzlies have been on fire this season, but the Kings are keeping the games tight as they haven’t lost more than seven points in any game this season. Go with Memphis to narrowly cover that spread on the street.
Memphis -3 (-115)
