NBA betting on Thursday includes a nationally televised game on TNT between the Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz.
The basketball betting schedule tells us that the Celtics have been off for an entire week with the All-Star break while the Jazz played on Tuesday against Memphis.
NBA betting scheduling information shows that this is the third game of a six-game road trip for the Celtics. Boston is 6-4 straight up and 5-5 against the basketball betting odds in the last 10 games against the Jazz. The Celtics have actually won three of the last four games at Utah as NBA betting numbers show. The teams met earlier this season in Boston and the Celtics won 100-91 as 9 point favorites in NBA odds.
Boston has been right around .500 on the road this season versus the NBA betting pointspread. The Celtics usually win games with defense as NBA betting stats indicate and an efficient offense. That can sometimes mean they don’t cover the basketball betting pointspread because they don’t blow teams away. Paul Pierce has led the Celtics in scoring for most of the season as NBA betting stats show and he gets a lot of support from Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.
The Jazz have been solid again this season at home versus the NBA odds. NBA betting information tells us that Utah has been fighting injuries all season with their top stars in and out of the lineup but they still find ways to win. NBA betting experts believe that this could be Jerry Sloan’s best coaching job ever considering Carlos Boozer and Deron Williams have missed significant time this season.
The over is 6-3-1 versus the basketball betting total in the last ten meetings between the two teams. Three of the last four games in Utah between the two teams have gone over the NBA betting total.
