Portland Trail Blazers vs Sacramento Kings (226.5) – 10:00 PM
The Portland Trail Blazers (4-6) hit the road to take on the Sacramento Kings (3-6). Both teams are coming off of wins against the Atlanta Hawks in their last game. Prior to their win over the Hawks, the Trail Blazers lost four straight games. The Kings have won three of their last four after starting the season 0-5.
Portland is led by Damian Lillard and his 33 points per game. Portland as a team shoots just 44.6% from the field, good for 21st in the league. They are the worst team in the league at spreading the ball around as they only average 17.2 assists per game. They have been scoring pretty high this season and a large part of that is due to them shooting 36.7% from three (ninth). They are in the middle of the pack in true shooting percentage (15th) and near the bottom in effective field goal shooting percentage (20th).
Sacramento will be without their offensive catalyst in De’Aaron Fox for about a month due to an ankle injury he suffered in practice. The Kings are 23rd in the league in field goal percentage and like the Blazers, they are good at shooting the three (eighth-best). Sacramento struggles from the free-throw line (20th) and is 18th in the league in offensive rating. Without Fox running their offense, the Kings should have a tough time scoring points.
The spread in this one is very fishy. Even with Fox out, the Kings are still a small one-point favorite. Instead of the spread, I like this game to go UNDER. If they truly do expect this to be a one-point game, I don’t see both teams scoring 113+ points. I see this game ending up more in the range of the low 100’s for each team, possibly even high 90s for the Kings. These two teams met earlier this season and the total ended up 234 points. Portland shot 54% from the field and Sacramento shot 40% from three. Both teams also shot above 85% from the line in that game. These teams won’t reach those numbers again in this game. I’m rolling with UNDER 226.5 in this game.
