Streaking Jazz are Catching the Slumping Thunder at the Right Time

The Thunder are mired in their biggest slump of the season and are set to run into the hottest team in the NBA tonight when they face off against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City. OKC has dropped three of four to begin a six-game road trip while the Jazz are riding a six-game winning streak. Sportsbooks opened Russell Westbrook and company as 6-point underdogs with a total of 202.

Shark Bites
  • The Thunder are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games on the road against the Jazz.
  • The Jazz are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games at home against teams with winning records.
  • The Thunder are 1-5 SU in their last six games on the road against teams with winning records.

Utah is creeping closer to one of the top four spots in the Western Conference due largely to its success at home. The Jazz haven’t lost at Vivint Smart Home Arena since before Christmas and are 16-7 SU in front of their hometown fans.

The Thunder aren’t operating at full strength right now, and the absence of big man Steven Adams has severely hindered the team. Adams, who’s missed two straight due to a concussion, is listed as questionable for tonight’s contest.

When these teams get together, the UNDER is paying out at a rapid pace. Eight of the last nine meetings between the Western Conference foes have gone below the closing total.
