NBA Betting – Detroit at Utah

NBA betting has Utah favored at home on Saturday as they host the Detroit Pistons.

If history is any indication the Jazz should have little trouble in this basketball betting game against the Pistons.

NBA betting on Utah in this series has been very profitable as the Jazz have won 9 of the last 10 straight up against the Pistons. They are a sizzling 9-1 against the basketball betting pointspread in those games.  This is the third game of a four-game road trip for the Pistons as they are at Phoenix tomorrow.

Detroit and Utah played twice last season and the Jazz won both games straight up and against the basketball betting odds. They won 99-82 at home and 120-114 at Detroit.  The Pistons have lost eight straight to the Jazz overall including six in a row at Utah. The over has been the way to go in this series as seven of the last ten have gone over the NBA betting total.

Normally the Jazz are great at home and struggle on the road in NBA betting but this season has been different.  The Jazz are struggling all the way around and even at home they are no guarantee in NBA betting.  Utah has again been dealing with a lot of injuries. Deron Williams has been hurt but he is expected to play in this basketball betting contest. C.J. Miles, Matt Harpring and Kyle Korver are all out. The Jazz should be thankful that Carlos Boozer decided to return or they would really be in sad shape in NBA betting. He has led them in scoring this NBA betting season and overall the Jazz are right around the Top 10 in points scored per game.  The defense has been weak though and that is why Utah continues to struggle in NBA betting.

The Pistons have a similar record to Utah in NBA betting but they have arrived at that record in opposite fashion. The Pistons win with defense as they are in the Top 10 in fewest points allowed. Offense is their trouble as they are near the bottom of the league as NBA betting stats show. New addition Ben Gordon has been good though as he leads the team in scoring.  Detroit also has big injury problems that are hurting them in NBA betting as Richard Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince are both out.
