NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Washington Wizard at Utah Jazz

12.04.2017     11:32 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Washington at Utah -4 O/U 198.5
Recommendation: Over

The Utah Jazz have been in good form having won and covered five straight while averaging 115.4 ppg. Donovan Mitchell (21.8 ppg) along with Derrick Favors and sixth man Alec Burks have led the offensive revival which should continue tonight versus Washington. After a solid run of player imposed dedication on the defensive end of the floor, Washington is now slipping back to it old ways. The focus on defending led the Wizards to a streak of seven straight games in which they held opponents to 100 points or less. They’ve since allowed 108 or more in three of their last five and 107 ppg over that span. That likely becomes troublesome tonight against the hot Utah offense especially since Washington’s game-to-game player quotes of focusing on defense have now quieted. Without the intensity on that end, expect Utah to approach and maybe exceed 110 points tonight. The good news for Washington is that their own offense has continued to be high caliber scoring 108.6 ppg over their last five games despite being without the service of John Wall. Utah’s defense is obviously better with the expected return of Rudy Gobert but unlike the betting markets, I expect his minutes and impact to be limited. At below 200, I see strong value with the bet on the “over.”
