Spread: Golden State Warriors -9
Golden State Warriors have a 40-15 record (24-30-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the first place of the West. They have won 15 of their last 16 matches and in their last game they won at home against the Heat with a 120-118 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Stephen Curry with 28.6 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.3 dimes per game. He is followed by Kevin Durant with 27.5 ppg, 5.9 dimes and 7.1 boards per game.
Utah Jazz have a 32-24 record (28-26-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 6th place of the West. They have won three of their last four matches and in their last game they won at home against the Spurs with a 125-105 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Donovan Mitchell with 22.4 ppg, adding 3.8 boards and 4 dimes per game. He is followed by Rudy Gobert with 15.2 ppg and a team high 12.8 boards per game.
In their two previous meetings earlier this season each team won once (Warriors on the road by one point and Jazz at home by 5). Warriors have a 21-7 home record, while the Jazz are 14-13 on the road. Warriors are better offensively, scoring 119.1 ppg to Jazz’s 109.2, while the Jazz are better defensively, allowing 105.8 ppg to Warriors’ 111.5 ppg. Warriors have better percentages both in field goals (49.3% to 46.1%) and in 3-pointers (38.6% to 34.5%). They are also better in dimes made (29.5 to 25), in boards grabbed (46.5 to 45.2) and in turnovers committed (13.7 to 14.8). Warriors are the absolute favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -9 spread and expect them to beat the odds tonight.
