Wednesday NBA Free play. My selection is on Utah minus the points over Portland at 9:10 pm et on Wednesday.
While it isn't necessarily being priced like it, this is one of the more lopsided matchups on Wednesday's NBA board as far as current form goes. The Blazers are reeling off six straight losses with the last four coming in ATS fashion as well. Portland's defense has been matador-like for not only weeks but months. You would have to go all the way back to January 6th against Indiana to find the last time the Blazers held an opponent to fewer than 40 made field goals. They've actually limited seven of their last eight opponents to 88 or fewer field goal attempts yet all but one of those foes made good on at least 41. While the Jazz are still missing one of their best scorers in Jordan Clarkson, they've managed just fine without him, going 4-2 SU and a perfect 6-0 ATS over their last six games. They've connected on 43, 41, 49, 46, 43, 42 and 46 field goals over their last seven contests and are well-positioned to erupt again here. We've also seen Utah lock in defensively, relatively-speaking at least, limiting its last four opponents to 40, 37, 42 and 41 made field goals. Here, we'll note that the Jazz are 19-5 ATS when playing at home after winning three or more consecutive games ATS over the last three seasons and a perfect 10-0 ATS at home off five or more ATS wins in a row over that same stretch, outscoring opponents by a ridiculous average margin of 15.1 points in that spot. Take Utah.
Sean went a PERFECT 3-0 last night - his FIFTH STRAIGHT winning card! He's RED HOT on the hardwood right now, including a 10-3 start to the NCAA Tournament and a 3-0-1 mark in NIT action! It's the PERFECT time to hop on board as Murph has more winners on tap Wednesday!
