Grizzlies Kings Betting Predictions – Grizzlies Right Behind Big Three Heading In To Date With Kings

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/6/2013 6:37:00 PM

The Memphis Grizzlies have managed to maintain one of the better records in the NBA’s Western Conference this season, and remain next in line following the big three at the top of the standings. Memphis trails the Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Clippers, and San Antonio Spurs each by three games, holding down the fourth spot and at least home court advantage for the opening playoff round. Whether or not the Grizzlies’ main goal is to pass the teams ahead of them, or to worry about those behind them is something these next few weeks will reveal, beginning with a sports betting trip west to face the lowly Sacramento Kings this Monday night.

NBA Sportsbook Line: Memphis – 3.5

Despite ranking among the worst in the Western Conference standings this season, the Kings have actually been excellent at home where they have won 10 of 17 overall. Sacramento has won four-straight at the Sleep Train Arena including back-to-back wins over the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics, and will look to pick up from where they left off following a four-game road trip.

While the tandem of Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph has combined to average over 34 points per game, the Grizzlies have carved their identity as the top-ranked defensive team in the NBA. Memphis has allowed an average 89.8 points per game for the best mark in the association, with Gay and Randolph key contributors at both ends of the floor. Mike Conley is still the director on offense with a team-high 6.4 assists per game but has also handled his defensive responsibilities by leading the team with 2.4 steals.

In contrast, the Kings have been one of the worst teams in the NBA at the defensive end, allowing over 101 points per game on average this season. DeMarcus Cousins has remained a force at both ends of the floor as he leads Sacramento in points, rebounds, and steals, but his effort has been inconsistent and he has been known to lose his focus at times. The Kings would certainly benefit if Tyreke Evans can make it back on to the court this season, but for now he remains out indefinitely.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Sleep Train Mattress Arena isn’t an easy place to play, but the Grizzlies have done well in limited action on the road this season and will need to perform well as the visiting team in order to contend with the big three in the West. Memphis also has to worry about the Golden State Warriors right behind them and the potential to lose their own potential home court advantage come playoff time, so wins against online betting teams that are on the outside looking in to the playoff picture will be that much more important heading in to the final stretch.
