Jazz at Trail Blazers picks and predictions

Prediction

Jazz 120, Trail Blazers 115

Moneyline

The road team has won the last 3 matchups, including twice this season. The Jazz are 9-16 on the road this season and 2-5 in their last 7 road games while the Blazers are 3-4 in their last 7 home games and only have 3 wins in their last 11 games.

This is the perfect game to go with the underdog with some nice positive odds.

BET JAZZ (+150).

Against the spread

The Jazz are 28-22 ATS this season overall and have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games. They are 7-3 ATS in their last 10.

The Blazers are 1-3 ATS in their last 4 games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10. They are 1-11 ATS in their last 12 games playing on one day's rest.

The Jazz are a good pick to cover, but the better bet here is to go with the moneyline unless you aren't as confident in them getting a straight-up win.

PASS.

Over/Under

The Over is 4-0 in the Jazz' last 4 games against a team with a winning home record (Portland is 12-10 at home). It is also 5-0 in Utah's last 5 road games.

However, none of the last 10 meetings between the 2 teams has reached above Wednesday's projected total.

BET UNDER 238.5 (-115).
