The Jazz have lost 14 straight games in Oklahoma City

Utah Jazz vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Odds April 15

The Oklahoma City Thunder kick off their journey to win an NBA Championship when they host the Utah Jazz in Game 1 of their first-round series. The Thunder and Jazz finished with identical records this season but because of a tie-breaker, home-court advantage was given to OKC. That may not bode well for the Jazz as they’ve lost 14 games in a row in Oklahoma City and opened as 3.5-point dogs.

SHARK BITES
  • The Thunder are 1-7 SU and 2-6 ATS in their last eight games in the playoffs.
  • The Jazz are 6-0 ATS in their last six games in the playoffs on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Thunder' last 10 games.

The Jazz have been one of the best stories of the NBA this season after being written off with Gordon Hayward’s departure. Utah’s defense took it up a notch as they ranked second in the NBA in points allowed per game while center Rudy Gobert continues his campaign for his first Defensive Player of the Year award.

But none of Utah’s success would be possible without rookie Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell has been a revelation in Salt Lake City, averaging just over 20 points per game and leading the Jazz on an incredible 18-5 SU record since the all-star break. If bettors are planning to back Utah’s spread in tonight’s game in OKC, they should know that the Jazz are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as dogs of 3.5 points or more.

The Thunder, on the other hand, may be viewed as a disappointment when you consider the talent on paper they possess. Russell Westbrook continued to be a beast this season, averaging another triple-double this year and is the only player to ever do it in multiple seasons.

But as great as Westbrook has been, OKC has been a frustrating wager for bettors, going 0-6 SU and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games vs divisional opponents. Spread-bettors have also been burned by this squad in this scenario as the Thunder are 1-5-1 ATS in its last six games as favorites of 3.5 points or more.

The total opened at 206 and trends are pointing to an UNDER. The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the last 16 games in this matchup with an average combined score of 193.7 points per game.
