8th Seed Odds: +1100
To Make Playoffs: Yes (+1100), No (-10000)
As we can see, the Kings odds to win it all were steep to begin with. They improved a bit from before the season went on break with the new format giving them a shot at making the playoffs. The Kings have a lot of work to do in eight games and will need help from a few teams, but it’s possible. Sacramento is 3.5 games back of the Grizzlies along with the Blazers and Pelicans. The Kings play the Pels twice, so they can make up a lot of ground there. Issue is they don’t play the Blazers or Grizzlies.
Sacramento Kings Game Line
The Kings open up the restart against the Spurs, favored by 2.5 points. Both teams dealt with injuries, but unfortunately San Antonio lost LaMarcus Aldridge to surgery. It was a shame the season was stopped when it was. The Kings had won seven of 10 games before the season was halted on March 11. Three of those wins were against the Grizzlies (twice) and Blazers. Don’t sleep on SacTown in this matchup and throughout the seeding schedule.
