NBA Betting Trends

Portland

The Blazers are 21-7 against the spread in their last 28 Thursday games, but just 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.

Utah

The Jazz are 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games as a home favorite and 2-7 ATS in their last nine games playing on two days of rest.

Prediction:

These two haven’t met this season. Utah is coming off the loss at Miami, but the Jazz covered the spread in the loss. Utah has been playing well and been able to beat up on some struggling teams in recent weeks. The Blazers had a nice win streak, but most came at home and they failed to cover in the lone road victory. Going on the road hasn’t been a strength for the Blazers and they have had just two road games in their last 10 contests. I think they are going to come out flat in Utah today and the Jazz should be able to efficiently cover this spread.

NBA Prediction: Utah Jazz -5.5
