Portland vs. Sacramento Best Picks
Drew Eubanks has seen some increased minutes due to injuries suffered on the starting line. He has been a solid fill-in, averaging eight points and seven rebounds a game in the month of February.
He’ll see starting minutes again today, and his props have yet to catch up to his skill level. As long as his point prop sits below ten, it will be a smash spot for bettors.
Eubanks Over 8.5 Points (-108)
Portland Trail Blazers vs. Sacramento Kings Prediction
This will be a tight battle, and these teams’ familiarity with each other cannot be underestimated. They play each other four times a year, and this will be their second meeting this season.
Portland took the win in Sacramento back in February, but their squad was fully healthy, and the Kings were not the same team we see today. Nevertheless, bettors should look for the Kings to come out hot as they try to move up in the standings.
