Two of the best teams from this NBA Season will face each other Wednesday Night, when Utah Jazz welcome Brooklyn Nets at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City. Jazz are doing amazingly strong at home, as Nets will challenge this home record with James Harden in great shape.
Utah Jazz have gone 16-2 this season at home, with sixteen straight runs! 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. Especially at home in Salt Lake City.
Now James Harden and co. will try to spoil their great run, and I actually think they have a chance. However, Kevin Durant is out of play, and Kyrie Irving will also have a night off. That means, it will primarily be up to Harden, Harris and DeAndre Jordan to make things exciting. And maybe, this will be too challenging, as Jazz have almost no injuries or players of Wednesday Night.
The bookmakers do not offer us odds for the match yet, but it will be interesting to see, what king of odds they will give on a triple-double for James Harden. Also, I think there may be some value in playing ‘under’ the total line, as Nets will have to keep the match in a soft an easy tempo, otherwise they do not have the quality in the squad to run with Jazz in 48 minutes, as I see it. As soon as we have some odds here, I will give my recommendations.
And now we have the recommendations.
Under 233.5 is a nice line, as we probably will see a slower tempo than we are used to.
Also the playerspecial on Donovan Mitchell with more than 4.5 rebounds is looking great. Remember, that Jazz are 2nd best in the entire NBA on rebounds, and Nets will be dominated by Jazz in the reboundgame.
