This game of Sacramento Kings at Utah Jazz is one of the most interesting from my point of view for tonight, maybe not the two best teams of the season, but the opportunity to make a bet and take advantage of this game is what I looking for. I personally care very little if any of these teams make it to the playoffs or not.
Who is the strong (-14.5)
Utah Jazz is obviously the strongest team in this game, it is not much better Sacramento Kings, but has better defense and they score lots of points at home. The advantage of Utah Jazz is that when they are playing at home they have better performance, and they have shown it by beating Timberwolves, Magic, Pistons and the Suns with a winning streak of 4 games.
The record of Utah Jazz at home is solid, and they have shown, closing last year 2017 when they beat the Cavaliers 104-101, but that was not all, then in mid-January they had a perfect winning streak defeating the most “hot” of the season and we’re talking about: Warriors 129-99, Hornets 106-94, Clippers 125-113, Spurs 101-99 and Suns 107-97.
Not bad for the Utah Jazz, the last 3 seasons the percentage of wins at home has remained above 60% which indicates that it is a team very capable of beating any team at home. Utah Jazz at home is scoring an average of 103.9 points per game, 46.30% field goal with 38.09 points at home, 77.5% from the free throw line, 10.85 3pointers, 8.65 offensive rebounds and about 13 turnovers at home. Those are not bad numbers, on the contrary, they are the 6th best team playing at home throughout the season.
Utah Jazz Trends: The average spread is -3.2 at home, they have not been able to complete spreads for more than ten points, of 9 spreads over -10.5 they have not completed any this season. The ATS at home is 19-14-1, not very attractive for bets.
Nothing to lose (+14.5)
The Sacramento Kings have nothing to prove during this game, miracles do not exist at this stage of the season, the team has been a disaster on the road, 23 wins and 47 losses, since December 26, 2017 the day of the first game away from home (which they lost against the Clippers 95-122), things have started to collapse for the team.
The average points on the road for Sacramento Kings is below 100 points, exactly 99.6 points and they are allowing home teams up to 107+ points or more. ATS 32-36-2 with an average line of +6.7, on the ten points they have held 8 times the spread +10.5, but when playing against teams with better average points they cannot maintain that mark.
The Kings allow too many points per quarter, almost 30 points to the home teams, Utah Jazz will take advantage of the weak defense of the Kings and the domain will be from the first minute of the game. The odds for this game are the same in most sportsbooks.
Prediction: Utah Jazz
