Jazz vs. Thunder Prediction
Will the Thunder pull off a small upset at home when they host the Jazz tonight at 8:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Thunder are now 1.5-point home underdogs versus the Jazz after the game opened as a pick'em. As for the total, the number hit the board at 203 and has been bet up slightly to 204.5.
Utah has won seven of its last 10 games and is 6-4 against the spread during that same 10-game stretch. The Jazz have a losing record against the spread overall, however, as they're 27-31 ATS on the season and 13-15 ATS on the road.
The Thunder have won six of their last 10 games and are 7-3 against the spread over that same span. They're also 33-25 against the number on the season, including 20-9 ATS at home.
OUR PREDICTION: The Jazz are just 2-7-1 against the spread in their last 10 trips to Oklahoma City while the home team has cashed in 14 of the last 20 meetings between these two teams. The Jazz are also just 2-14 against the spread in their last 16 conference games while the Thunder are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games coming off a win. The Jazz are playing great and this one should come down to the final possessions of the game. I'm still not sure why Utah is favored, however.
