4 units on Sacramento PICK (-110) (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: loss

3 units on Game Total OVER 197 -105 (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: win

The Kings will not make the playoffs this season. They remain, however, competitive in these games that feature an opponent that is also not expected to find the postseason, and overall the Kings are playing good basketball right now. They dropped their first four games to start the season, but have been 4-3 since. What they have been doing is winning the "winnable" games on their schedule, or at least playing tight. It is not surprising that three of their four wins have come against Minnesota (losing on the road by just two), LA Clippers, and this Memphis team. So the Kings have been more than competitive against the weaker sisters of the NBA, and at the same time more aggressive on the offensive end with those four averaging 205 points per game. Memphis has now dropped four straight and heading nowhere. They have given up over 100 points a game in each of their last six. I am riding the Kings as well as the OVER in this one.
