Two of the best teams from this NBA Season will face each other Wednesday Night, when Phoenix Suns welcome Utah Jazz at Phoenix Suns Arena in Arizona. Suns are very strong at home currently at 18-8, as Jazz will challenge this home record with Rudy Gobert in great shape. Jazz have a 16-10 away record and will hope to make it 17-10 after tonight. To confirm that these to teams are the real deal. Just look at their their Last 10 record. Both at 9-1 with the Suns having a 6 win streak and Jazz coming off a loss against the Dallas Mavericks.
The transformation of the Utah-team has went fast, from being a team that almost everybody felt superior, to a team that everybody must fear. Being at top of the Western Conference says it all. But also the way they have done it, is impressive. A fast offence, with great 3-point shooters, and a tough defense have made them very hard to face. Phoenix Suns being a top 5 defense have few defensive troubles but they allow the points through their opposition Center. Today Suns face Rudy Gobert the 7 ft1 inch tall Center and i see him having a very good chance of create a miss match against Ayton.
Each squad features young, high-scoring All-Star guards Mitchell and Devin Booker , veteran All-Star point guards Mike Conley Jr. and Chris Paul, and talented bigs Rudy Gobert and Deandre Ayton. So this could be a rivalry for the next years to come.
The bookmakers offers us 226.5 for the over/under, but it will be interesting to see if a close contested matchup will end with a fast paced game or a calculated affair that would make every point count double. I think there may be some value in playing ‘under’ the total line, as both teams allows around the 107.2 and 107.7 points pr game. It puts us under the total by 12 points. So in a close matchup i see the under as the better play.
The playerspeciel on Ruby Gobert Over 27.5 Points+Rebounds is looking great @-110. Rudy hit this 7 times in the last 10 games.
