The Thunder are a slight basketball betting favorite in this game against the Jazz.
NBA betting has this as the last game of a four-game trip for the Jazz. The Jazz have been far better this season on the road than in previous years so they are a threat to win at Oklahoma City. Utah has won 7 of the last 10 against the Thunder although they are just 5-5 against the basketball betting odds. The teams have met twice this season and Oklahoma City has won both games. The Thunder squeaked out an 87-86 win at home and also won 104-94 at Utah. This game on Sunday has the potential to be another good one.
It is really hard to go against either one of these teams in NBA betting. The Jazz have been playing very well and are a threat in the Western Conference. Oklahoma City is vastly improved this season and they have a very young and talented team led by Kevin Durant. Both teams have winning records this season at home and on the road vs. the point spread.
The Jazz just continue to roll on the road and that has made them a much better team. Utah is 5th in the league on offense and they are 12th on defense. Utah has a potent offense led by Carlos Boozer and Deron Williams. The Thunder can matchup pretty well though, with Durant and Russell Westbrook.
Oklahoma City has a winning record at home and on the road vs. the NBA betting odds. They are better on the road though as they are just a couple games over .500 vs. the NBA betting line at home. The one advantage that the Thunder has in this game is that Utah is finishing up their road trip and teams sometimes can have a tough time in the final game of a road trip.
This game won’t get the attention of Boston and Cleveland on Sunday but it will probably be a better game to watch. The Jazz and Thunder can score and they have some exciting players. Both teams are playing very well and this should be one of the best games of the day.
