NBA Betting Trends


The Jazz are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games playing on zero days of rest. The over is 4-1 in the last five Utah games versus a team with a winning straight up record.


The Celtics are 10-4-2 ATS in the last 16 meetings. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.


Both teams played last night and might be a little sluggish. Eventually, the Jazz are going to figure things out defensively and why not tonight? These two squads play a slow pace and figure to get into a defensive battle where every possession counts. I'm going to side with the under here.
