Jazz vs. Thunder Free Pick
Two red-hot teams meet up tonight in the NBA as the Oklahoma City Thunder host the Utah Jazz at 8PM ET. Who has the edge in this clash?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Thunder are the clear favorite at home, as they are getting odds of -9.5 points against the Jazz. The over/under total for the game has been set at 198 points.
Oklahoma City is 49-22 overall, 28-9 at home and 30-40-1 against the spread. Utah is 35-36 overall, 13-23 on the road and 35-36 against the spread. Oklahoma City has won all three meetings this season with the Thunder, going 2-1 against the spread in those three games.
The Jazz are hot right now, winning six of their last seven, including an 89-87 win at Houston last night. The Thunder are also on a roll, winning five straight coming into tonight. However, OKC has pretty much locked itself into the third seed in the West. They aren’t going to get any higher and probably won’t drop back to the fourth seed. Utah currently sits in the eighth seed in the West by ½ a game over Houston. Utah has to keep winning to keep pace and they are playing like a team with urgency. Look for that to continue tonight.
