Jazz on a roll
Utah is on a 3-game win streak right now following a 125-111 at Minnesota on Sunday. They have won nine of their last 10 as well. The Jazz are 29-22 on the season, 14-12 on the road, 25-24-2 against the spread and 26-24-1 with the under.
The Jazz have been one of the top defensive teams in the NBA this season, allowing 105.1 points per game while limiting opponents to 45.5 percent shooting. Offensively, Utah is putting up 108.7 points per game while shooting 46 percent from the field. Donovan Mitchell is leading the team with 22.5 points and 4.0 assists per game. Rudy Gobert is adding 15.0 points and 12.9 rebounds per contest.
Blazers rolling as well
Portland is coming off a 120-111 win over Atlanta on Saturday. The Blazers have won and covered the spread in five of their last six games. Portland is 31-20 on the season, 21-7 at home, 28-23 against the spread and 25-25-1 with the over/under total.
The Blazers are putting up 112.8 points per game on offense this season while the defense gives up 110.1 points per game. Both Damian Lillard and Evan Turner are both probable to play tonight despite lingering injuries. Lillard is averaging 26.2 points and 6.2 assists per game to lead the team while CJ McCollum is adding 20.8 points per contest.
NBA Betting Trends
The Jazz have covered the spread in six straight Wednesday games and in five of its last seven conference games.
The Blazers are 8-0 against the spread in their last eight when playing on 3 days or more of rest. Portland is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven conference games.
Portland just earned a 109-104 win at Utah last week and the Blazers come into this game well rested. While the Jazz have been winning games, they haven’t been covering consistently like Portland. The Blazers have put up 120 points or more in four of their last six games I think they can continue their hot offense tonight against Utah, despite the Jazz being a good defensive team. The Blazers don’t need to cover many points, so I will stick with Portland at home.
