The Golden State Warriors continue at home and will host the Utah Jazz at the Chase Center on Wednesday night. These teams already faced each other twice so far this season and they're tied 1-1.

In their last 10 games the Warriors are 4-6, averaging 114.8 points, 43.3 rebounds, 28.3 assists, 5.5 steals and 3.5 blocks per game while shooting 46.3% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 120.1 points per game.

BETTING TRENDS

Utah are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games against Golden State.

Utah are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games against Golden State.

Utah are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

Utah are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Golden State.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Golden State's last 8 games.

The total has gone OVER in 10 of Golden State's last 13 games against Utah.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Golden State's last 5 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Jazz have been up and down this season but they get to this game full healthy and ranking #4 in offense in the NBA scoring 117 points per game but they're 1-7 in their last 8 games on the road. The Warriors have one of the best records at home so far but they are without Curry, Thompson and Wiggings among other players so I don't think they'll be able to keep up with the Jazz offense on this game. Take Utah.

PICK: Jazz -4.5 (-110)
