If you’re a fan who will Bet on NBA the latest Vegas odds has the Warriors the favorites in this game at -13 ½ with the Over/under 208 ½ and -1300 on the Money Line, while the Utah Jazz are the listed underdogs at +13 ½ and +850 on the Money Line.
With close to a month more of the 2015-16 NBA Regular season and then the postseason play begin and the games presently in this Western Conference are as heated as they have ever been.
Tonight the Warriors of GS seek to win again as they chase the best season record in the history of their league, as the face the Utah Jazz who are close to achieving a playoff spot in this Western Conference.
For the fans of the 29-34 Utah Jazz your team seems win a game and then struggle in the following game, like on Tuesday at home they lost 91-84 to the Hawks of Atlanta and that dropped them in the rankings at 2 games back of the 8th seed Rockets of Houston as both seek the 8th sport in the playoff race of their conference.
That weird since Utah with 97.2 points allowed to opponents each game are ranked in the league at 3rd best for defensive scoring. Thus in that game with the Hawks their defense held them to less than the 100 points, but their offense could not bring a victory. Thus the Jazz in their ultimate 5 games they have lost leads and won 1 game and lost 4 of the 5 games.
Their star in that game was their center R. Gobert swarmed the boards for 15 rebounds and in his ultimate 3 games he has some 52 rebounds, but the Jazz still struggle scoring. Their only players that have had some success of offense are G. Hayward who scored 22 points against the Hawks, and D. Favors who scored 16 in that same game. The rest of the team had no consistency on offense. That will not be an asset when they face the Warriors at home where they are without a loss this season. Another thing that has to be concerning the Jazz as they come into this game tonight is that before their latest victory over the Pelicans of New Orleans they had lost their previous 6 games.
If you’re a fan of the 56-6 Golden State Warriors the team is still embarrassed from their loss last Sunday to the Lakers of L.A., but they eased that pain as the overcame the Magic of Orlando on Monday night 119-113 again on home court.
The Warrior fans saw another performance by MVP choice S. Curry who made 7 -3pointers and scored a total of 41 points while have some 14 rebounds in that game. In that game Curry became the 1st NBA Player to have 300 3-pointers in regular season this 2015-16 seasons.
He was accompanied in the scoring in that game by Splash Brother K, Thompson who competed 5 from 3-point range while scoring a total of 28 points in that game. They did have problems in that game holding on to the ball as they had a season high for turnovers at 23, and that should be an interesting statistic to the Jazz who are very defensively orientated. But with the way the Jazz has struggled as of late, it’s likely that the Warriors will increase their home win record to 46.
The sports betting prediction for this NBA Western Conference rivals game will see the Golden State Warriors easily overtake the Utah Jazz 1110-86 and win their 46th home game this season.
