Jazz vs. Trail Blazers Best Bets
Utah Jazz Moneyline (+140 DraftKings)
The away team has won both contests between these two squads this NBA season and Utah has also claimed victory in four of their last six games. The Jazz are currently fourth in the association in points scored per tilt with 117.6 and also sit fourth in three-pointers per game with an impressive 14.4. The Blazers are also playing well entering tonight’s matchup, but average fewer points per game this season (113.6) and are also yielding over 10 more points per contest in their last three times on the court than the Jazz.
This is a great game to go with the road dog and positive odds.
Risk: 1 unit on DraftKings to win 1.4 units. (Playable to +120)
Game Total Under 238 (-110 DraftKings)
I’m one to usually make arguments for the over but this is a big number for these two teams. The Jazz have allowed an average of just 107.3 points in their last three games, with the Blazers yielding 117.7 in that time frame. Looking at the last six games between these two franchises, the total has not gone over 236 and the average score has been 219.7.
Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to -120)
