Memphis Grizzlies vs Sacramento Kings prediction

It would surprise nobody if the Sacramento Kings took the Grizzlies behind the woodshed here, as they're comfortably the better team. However, the Grizzlies continue to play hard regardless of who takes the court, and you can make money with them given they're 33-35 ATS on the season. The Sacramento Kings are winning games, but they're 4-6 ATS in their last 10 games and this could be a look ahead spot as they leave for a three game road trip after this contest. I'm not thrilled to lay double-digit chalk with the Kings. I'll grab the points with the scrappy Grizzlies, who don't go down quietly most nights.
