Rockets vs. Jazz NBA Predictions: High-Scoring Affair in Utah? 2/26/18

Will it be a high-scoring affair tonight in Utah, where the Jazz will host the visiting Houston Rockets at 9:00 p.m. ET?

LINE MOVEMENT

Houston opened as a 2-point road favorite but the line has climbed a half-point to 2.5 at most sportsbooks. The total has also moved off the original number set by oddsmakers, climbing from 211 up to 213.5.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 75% of the betting tickets are on the Rockets to cover the spread while 63% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the over.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

Eric Gordon is questionable for the Rockets due to an illness while Ricky Rubio is probable for the Jazz despite dealing with a hip ailment.

BETTING STRATEGY

I believe oddsmakers set the total too low for this game initially, which is why they were forced to adjust this morning. The over has been an excellent bet in this series, going 6-0 in the last six meetings between theset wo teams and cashing in four of the last five meetings in Utah. The over is also 4-0 in the Rockets' last four road games, is 6-0 in their last six games when facing a team with a winning record, and has cashed in eight straight Jazz games when they play an opponent with a winning record.
