Basketball wagering heavily favors Utah on Wednesday as they host the Golden State Warriors in a game that can be seen on ESPN.
The Jazz are still trying to get the second seed in the Western Conference so don’t expect them to have a letdown against a bad Golden State team. The Jazz have owned this series against Golden State, winning eight of the last ten straight up and 7 of the last 10 against the NBA wagering line.
Basketball wagering on the Jazz continues to be successful as Utah wins on the road and at home. They routed the Warriors 100-89 last month in Oakland. The Warriors actually won the last game the teams played at Utah but that was almost a year ago. Three of the last four in this series have gone under the total. That may not happen in this game considering Golden State and Utah are among the league leaders in points per game.
There is no question that Golden State is having a poor season. They are in last place in the Pacific Division as they trail even the Clippers and Kings. Before you just automatically give the Jazz the win in basketball wagering in this game you should be aware that Golden State has a winning record against the point spread. The Warriors don’t win very often but they do cover the spread. They have a winning record at home and on the road vs. the point spread. Golden State can score and that gives them the chance to get the backdoor cover. Stephen Curry is having a very good rookie season and he is a player to watch. The team also has Monta Ellis who is averaging more than 25 points per game.
Utah has also been a winner this season in NBA wagering. The Jazz have one of the best records in the league this season vs. the number at home. Utah simply is one of the most difficult places in the NBA to play and the Jazz really have a big home court advantage. Utah is 4th in the league on offense led by Carlos Boozer and Deron Williams. They can also play a little defense as they are 12th in the league. Utah still goes over the total more often than they go under and that could be the case against a high scoring Golden State team that plays no defense at all.
