The Sacramento Kings look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 113.6 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 118.4 points on 47.9 percent shooting. De'Aaron Fox is averaging 23.4 points and 3.4 rebounds while Harrison Barnes is averaging 16.6 points and 3.5 assists.

The Grizzlies are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Kings are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Grizzlies last 4 overall. The over is 7-2 in Kings last 9 home games. The Grizzlies are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Sacramento and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
You can make a case for either side here, as both teams have run hot and cold at times this season and they're both pounded with injuries. With that said, we're still getting the hotter team at home with a free bucket. The Memphis Grizzlies are losing their last five games by an average of six points while allowing 51.7 percent shooting from the field. Better options on this NBA Sunday, but I'd take the Kings here if forced to pick.
