Sunday, March 25, 2018
TV: NBATV, 8:30 p.m. ET
Utah opened as a 4-point road favorite but the line has since jumped to 6 at the majority of online sportsbooks. As for the total, it hit the board at 203.5 but was bet down to 201.
As of this writing, 74% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Jazz to cover the point spread tonight. Meanwhile, 67% of the betting tickets are on the over.
KEY INJURY TO WATCH
Rudy Gobert (knee) is probable to play for the Jazz, who are otherwise relatively healthy. The same cannot be said for the Warriors, who will not have Stephen Curry (knee), Kevin Durant (rib) and Klay Thompson (thumb) tonight. Draymond Green, however, is probable despite dealing with a groin injury.
The Warriors are too banged-up at the moment and the Jazz are too hot not to lay the wood on the road favorites. Golden State is 3-8 against the spread in its last 11 games overall, is winless at 0-7 at the betting window in its last seven games coming off a win, and is winless at 0-6 ATS in its last six games playing on one day of rest. The Jazz, meanwhile, are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 road games, are 9-1 against the number in their last 10 road games versus a team with a winning home record, and have cashed in nine of their last 13 games when facing a team with a winning record.
OUR PREDICTION: UTAH JAZZ -6
