NBA basketball bets on the Utah Jazz have been a poor value recently, however, despite their status as a NBA betting playoff team. The Utah Jazz enter action tonight having lost 6 out of their last 8 NBA basketball bets including their last 2 consecutive.
The Jazz have also been trending under as of late with 7 out of their last 9 games having gone under the total. The Jazz have an overall NBA betting record of 45-27 straight up and 37-35 on NBA basketball bets. The strength of Utah with NBA basketball bets has been their offense which ranks 7th best in the NBA.
Mehmet Okur is the leading scorer on the Jazz and he is averaging 17.6 points per game. Deron Williams is a great “quarterback” for the Jazz and he is averaging an astounding 10.6 assists per game. Utah has been solid on their home NBA basketball bets with a mark of 21-16 against the spread.
The Jazz are also a respectable 30-25 on NBA basketball bets as a chalk. Despite one of the worst records in the NBA the New York Knicks have been a surprisingly good value on their NBA basketball bets. New York has a NBA betting mark of 29-44 straight up but is a solid 41-31-1 against the spread this year.
The Knicks have been an effective road team with their NBA basketball bets posting a mark of 21-13-1 against the spread. New York has trended under on the road with their NBA basketball bets as they have gone over the total in just 14 out of 35 road games.
The Knicks are a strong offensive team that ranks 4th overall in the league but they rank 28th overall on defense, which has been their main weakness against NBA basketball bets. The Knicks upset the Jazz 107-99 as 4 point home dogs on November 9 in the last meeting between these two teams. The game snuck under the total of 207.
