Utah Jazz -12.5 (-110) (DraftKings)
#519 UTAH (-) over Oklahoma City at 8 PM EST Checking in angry off their one-point home loss to the Grizzlies, the Jazz will travel to the Paycom Center and take their frustrations out on the Thunder. Oklahoma City enters this conference battle off four consecutive pointspread wins and that streak of paydays will come to a halt right here. When these two teams hooked up in Salt Lake City back on October 20th, Utah (-13') had no trouble racing past the Thunder winning by the final of 107-86. Rest assured; the Jazz won't have an issue here either. Technically speaking, NBA rested road favorites that lost straight up as a home favorite of -10 or more in their last game own a dependable 60-35-1 ATS mark provided their opponent arrives off a non-division battle. As long as our "play on" side is not running with same season revenge, this fast-developing system improves to a rewarding 50-24-1 ATS. That bodes well for the Jazz. Clinging to a weak 17-46 SU and 27-36 ATS record, the Thunder have quietly been one of the NBA's worst lately. In this run facing a foe that is not off a blowout victory of 10 points or more, OKC falls to a miserable 12-34 SU and 16-30 ATS including a woeful 6-18 SU and ATS if the Thunder are running in the comforts of home. Also, since January 11th, 2021, double-digit NBA home dogs have struggled lately notching a feeble 9-36 SU and 16-28-1 ATS record in their last 45 tries including a pathetic 2-24 SU and 6-19-1 ATS if they take the court off a blowout loss of 11 points or more. With those two parameters in play and our "play against" host rested, this situation falls to a shocking 1-12 SU and ATS. Jazz head coach Quin Snyder wasn't happy with his teams effort against the Grizzlies and he will make sure they are focused for this conference showdown. Take Utah. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
