Preview

Utah Jazz will meet Portland Trail Blazers on Wedsneday in Utah, this will be the third game between both teams as Utah have won the last two games 129-107 at home then 120-105 in Portland.

Portland Trail Blazers are coming off a blow out loss to Minnesota Timberwolves 124-81 which puts them on 5 game losing streak and will go to Utah tonight to make it a 6 game losing streak most likely. Anfrnee Simmons their best player right now with all the injuries they have didn't play last game and he is questionable for this game and if he does't play this might get ugly again for Portland team that is currently sitting as the 11th place only one lace behind the play in tournment and will try their best to play better coming forward to have a chance which is looking so unlikely at the moment with all their injuries.

Utah Jazz lost last game in Dallas to the Mavericks 111-103 which puts them in the 4th place with the Mavericks being in the 5th place this is likely to be one of the matchups of the playoffs first round but they will be looking forward to bounce back after this tough loss. Utah already won the last 2 games with the Blazers this season easily and will try to make it their third win against them tonight 

Although Utah Jazz are 10-3 straight up last 13 games, they are still only 1-6 ATS last 7 games, the total has gone under in 4 of last 5 games betwwen the Jazz and Blazers. Utah Jazz are 7-0 straight up last 7 home games,Utah are 1-6 ATS last 7 games when playing against an opponent from the Western Conference. the total has gone in 8 of last 12 games for the Jazz against an opponent from the Northwest Division.

Portland Trail Blazers are 0-5 straight up and ATS last 5 games, Portland are also 2-6 ATS last 8 games on the road. the Blazers are 1-4 straight up last 5 games vs the Jazz. the total has gone under in 5 of last 6 games for the Blazers when playing an opponenet in the Northwest Divsion.

Head to Head

Utah Jazz are 6-4 straight up last 10 games vs the Blazers and the ATS record is split between both teams with 5 covers for each team. the O/U is 5-5 last 10 games with the Portland Trail Blazers averaging 111.4 points and Utah Jazz averaging 114.3 points a game.

Prediction

Utah Jazz are coming off a loss and will want to bounce back and finish this game against Blazers team that is missing ton of role players and with Anfrnee Simmons being questionable in this game, I can't take the points with the Blazers at their current form but on the other hand 17 points are a lot of points to lay with the Jazz here. Jazz probably will blow them out anyway but i like the Over in this game better than the Jazz spread as blow outs usually leads to a lot of points and i can see the Jazz putting 130+ easily and the two games they played this season went over this number so give me the Over. 

Pick: Total over 221 points (-110)
