Portland Trail Blazers vs Sacramento Kings 10/19/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Portland Trail Blazers will go against the Sacramento Kings in NBA action in Golden 1 Center, CA, on Wednesday, October 19, 2022, at 10:00 PM ET.


The 2021–22 Portland Trail Blazers, who finished with a record of 27–55, placed 13th in the Western Conference and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2013. They had the worst defensive efficiency in the league, allowing 116.9 points per 100 possessions.


The Trail Blazers will need to significantly improve this time around if they want to make it back to the postseason because Portland’s defense was 28th in both field goal percentage (47.9%) and 3-point percentage (37.1%).


Portland’s attack will be led by Damian Lillard going forward after having his contract extended through the 2026–27 campaign.


Due to an abdominal ailment, the six-time All-Star played just 29 games last season, averaging 24.0 points and 7.3 assists per game.


Jusuf Nurkic (15.0 PPG and 11.1 RPG in 56 games last year) is still a go-to player in the paint, but Anfernee Simons (17.3 PPG and 11.1 RPG in 2021–22) will join him in the backcourt.


  • The Portland Trail Blazers are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Portland’s last 5 matches. 
  • The Trail Blazers are 0-10 SU in their last 10 matches.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Sacramento Kings Predictions 10/19/2022


The Sacramento Kings had the longest playoff absence in NBA history, having not participated since 2006. In 2021–22, they had a record of 30-52, which put them in 12th place in the Western Conference, four matches behind the No. 10 seed and the play-in round.


The Kings were 25th in the NBA in terms of points scored per 100 possessions (109.9), but they were giving up 115.3 in return (27th).


To improve their 3-point shooting, the Kings added Malik Monk to their roster in the summer. For the LA Lakers past season, Monk averaged 2.3 3-pointers per game while making 39.1% of his triples.


In addition, Sacramento gave Maurice Harkless, Justin Holiday, and a first-round pick in 2024 to Atlanta in exchange for Kevin Huerter, who scored 12.1 points per game in 2021–2022 while shooting 38.9% from outside the arc.


The No. 5 choice in the 2017 NBA Draft, De’Aaron Fox, is still the Kings’ starting point guard (23.2 PPG, 5.6 APG), and he plays with a grudge.


  • The total went OVER in 8 of Sacramento’s last 12 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 4 of the Kings’ last 5 matches against Portland. 
  • The Sacramento Kings are 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches at home.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Sacramento Kings. The NBA pick for this game is the Sacramento Kings. Ten days ago, the Kings defeated the Trail Blazers 126-94 as 2.5-point home favorites after going undefeated in the preseason.


The Kings limited their competitors to fewer than 95 points in three of their four preseason games, while the Trail Blazers lost four of their five preseason games, including crushing defeats to Utah (118-101) and Golden State (131-98).


Sacramento defeated Portland in 2021–2022, going 2-1 SU and ATS. The Trail Blazers will have a difficult assignment to strengthen their defense in 2022–23 since Damian Lillard and Anfernee Simons are both weak defensive players.


The Sacramento Kings will win to a predicted score of 116-112.
