This basketball betting matchup features two of the best guards in the game as Chris Paul of the Hornets faces Deron Williams of the Jazz. NBA betting scheduling information tells us that the Hornets are playing the 2nd game of their three-game road trip.
The Hornets are also in a basketball betting back-to-back as they were at the Lakers last night. The Jazz on the other hand are playing the fourth game of their five-game homestand as the NBA betting schedule shows.
NBA betting trends favor the Jazz in this matchup. Utah has won 8 of the last 10 against New Orleans overall and the Jazz are 6-4 against the basketball betting pointspread in those games. At Utah, the Jazz have won the last five meetings against the Hornets and they are 4-1 against the NBA odds in those games.
New Orleans has not been a very good team on the road this season against the NBA odds. The Hornets have to win games and cover the NBA betting odds with defense and hope to get enough scoring from Chris Paul. They are much better with that formula at home than on the road versus the NBA betting pointspread.
The Jazz have been similar to New Orleans this season as they are tougher at home than on the road. The one thing that makes Utah and New Orleans different as NBA betting stats tell us is the offenses. The Jazz are in the Top 10 in offense as NBA betting numbers show while the Hornets can struggle. New Orleans makes up for it with defense though.
The Under is 6-3-1 against the basketball betting total in the last ten meetings between the two teams. At Utah, four of the last five have gone under the NBA betting total. That one game that went over though occurred last month as the Jazz won 116-90 as NBA betting results indicate.
This should be a very entertaining NBA betting matchup for Saturday night. Make sure you open your account at SBG Global so you can bet on the Hornets and Jazz.
