NBA Betting Trends

Golden State

The under is 4-0 in the last four Warriors games on Fridays. The under is 6-0 in the last six Warriors games vs. a team with a winning percentage above .600.

Utah

The Jazz are 0-4 ATS in their last four Friday games. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.

Prediction:

These two teams are strong defensively, but I think this total is still a couple points too low. Let's not forget all the offensive talent here such as Curry, Durant and Mitchell. This series has tilted toward overs in recent years and I'm going to say the same happens tonight.
