Why Bet The Oklahoma City Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder (34-25 SU, 33-25 ATS) have also won three straight and come into this contest off a thrilling 118-110 win over the revamped New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night as Russell Westbrook posted another triple double with 41 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists while center Enes Kanter added 20 points off the bench. Oklahoma City ranks a slid 12th in scoring (106.2 ppg) and 18th in defense (105.9 ppg).

Why Bet The Utah Jazz

The Jazz (37-22 SU, 27-31 ATS) have won three straight and come into this contest off a 102-92 win over Washington on Sunday while covering the spread as a 2-point road favorite. Gordon Hayward scored 30 points and Rudy Gobert added 15 points and 20 rebounds in the win.  The Jazz are a god bet in just about every game simply because they rank first in defense by limiting the opposition to just 95.6 points per game.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

Oklahoma City Thunder has won three of the last four meetings against the Jazz, including their 97-95 home loss on Jan. 23, but seeing as how Utah has not allowed more than 95 points over their last three games, I like Utah to cover a spread that should be right around four or five points – by winning outright.

The Jazz have won seven of their last 10 games while going 4-1 ATS in their last five road dates while the Thunder have gone just 4-3 over their last seven and 6-4 over their L/10 games.

My final score prediction is Utah 103 Oklahoma City 101
