"Only will take 4 months for the wager to complete."
1* Utah (9:05 ET): Regardless of how Utah performs Monday night in LA (facing the Lakers), it appears as if this line will be way too low. Most rating systems, including my own, would have the Jazz laying double digits here. The Suns, fresh off giving up 138 pts to the Warriors on Saturday (I had the Over!) are as bad as ever and I say lay the pts.
The Jazz are down some key contributors, such as George Hill and Derrick Favors. Not to mention, Alec Burks hasn't even suited up this year. But the team keeps on winning, as in five of their last six w/ the only defeat coming by a single point to Miami. Defensively, they have a clear edge here over Phoenix. While the Suns allow 115.2 PPG on the road, the Jazz allow just 91.8 PPG at home. Needless to say, these teams find themselves on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of defensive efficiency; Utah is fourth while Phoenix is 21st.
These teams met four times last year and Utah won every time. Three of the games were decided by double digits and the fourth was a nine-point game. Phoenix never scored more than 89 pts in any of the four games. The Jazz are more formidable this season and will have an even more distinct edge if Hill returns Tuesday night. Plus, they have Gordon Hayward, who averages a strong 23.1 PPG here in Salt Lake City. I know it was Golden State, but giving up as many points as Phoenix did Saturday is pretty unforgivable. 1* Utah
