Jazz at Thunder picks and predictions


Thunder 115, Jazz 114



Oklahoma City (-230) should win, but its moneyline is a little inflated due to the absence of F Lauri Markkanen and the return of Gilgeous-Alexander. Bet the spread and/or total instead.

Against the spread

BET JAZZ +6.5 (-115).

Jordan Clarkson and F Kelly Olynyk are capable enough scorers to carry the offensive load for 1 game in the absence of Markkanen. While this may not be enough to get the straight-up win, Utah should be able to keep it close. The Jazz have performed well in similar situations and are tied for the 3rd-best cover percentage as an away underdog this season at 63.6% (14-8-1 ATS).

While Gilgeous-Alexander’s return obviously upgrades Oklahoma City, the Thunder are just 1-4-2 ATS in their last 7 games after a win. Look for Oklahoma City to let down after Friday’s rout of the Jazz.


BET UNDER 236.5 (-115).

The Under is 5-1 in Utah’s last 6 games and 17-7 in the Jazz’ last 24 after allowing more than 125 points in their previous contest. The Under has hit in 16 of Utah’s last 21 games vs. teams with a losing record and is 10-2 in Oklahoma City’s last 12 when playing in the same situation. Look for Utah to score less than usual in the absence of Markkanen and for Gilgeous-Alexander to be less productive than expected coming off an injury.
