Kings vs. Grizzlies, 8 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Kings +4.5
Sacramento has been able to hang around for most of its games this season, and the Grizzlies are coming off a tough contest Saturday. Take the Kings to keep things close and cover this line in a battle of two Western conference playoff hopefuls.
Over/Under: Over 239
This is a big number, but both squads are dynamic offensively. The Kings have hit the over in their last two and four of their last six. The Grizzlies have trended to the under of late and might have some tired legs on the second night of a back-to-back set but Sacramento should be able to do most of the heavy lifting for the over to hit again.
