Trail Blazers vs. Jazz Predictions: Will Portland Pull Off Upset? 2/23/18

Will the Portland Trail Blazers pull off the upset tonight in Utah when they visit the Jazz at 9:00 p.m. ET?

The line for this game jumped a full point at the betting window after hitting the board at Utah -3.5. As for the total, the number opened at 206.5 but was bet up to 207.


As of this writing, 72% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Jazz. The majority of the money is also on the over for this matchup.


Ricky Rubio is questionable tonight for the Jazz due to a hip injury.


The Jazz were red-hot heading into the All-Star break but that doesn't mean their momentum hasn't been slowed. The Blazers are 9-4-1 against the spread in their last 14 games, are 6-1-1 against the number in their last eight conference tilts and are a perfect 6-0 at the betting window in their last six games coming off a break of three or more days of rest. I like to back underdogs that I feel can win the game outright and that's the situation tonight.
