Golden State Warriors
The Warriors enter this Tuesday night pairing flashing a stellar 40-10 record that ranks them as the best team in the Pacific Division as well as the West. Not only that, Golden State’s unmatched record pegs them as the winningest team in the NBA. Which is saying something in 2018, since the competition is fiercer than usual. In the West, the Rockets and Timberwolves have both emerged as top contenders. Simultaneously, the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors are both ahead of the Cavs in the Eastern Conference. As for this evening’s matchup, it comes as no surprise to see the Warriors pegged as the favorites. But should bettors take the money line in this evening’s Golden State Warriors vs. Utah Jazz matchup? Or should NBA betting online stick to the spread?
There’s no denying that the Warriors are the team to back this evening. Nevertheless, there’s no denying that there’s not much value in taking Golden State straight up. You could pile on a big a bet backing them, but that’s not what most players enjoy. Alternatively, you could take the Warriors against the spread. Golden State is 22-27-1 against the spread this season, and the line is set at 8 ½.
The Utah Jazz swoove into this Western Conference matchup sporting a 21-28 record that ranks them dead last in the Northwest Division. Additionally, the Jazz rank as the 10th worst team in the Western Conference. However, since Utah is but 4 ½ games behind the 8th seeded Denver Nuggets, they could still make a push for the playoffs. Nonetheless, the Jazz will need a strong end to the year to do so, which isn’t exactly something we’ve seen out of Utah lately. All in all, the Jazz are 3-2 in their last 5 matchups, so they’ve got the makings to do it. But can we really expect them to compete with the Warriors this evening?
It goes without saying that Utah will have their hands full this evening. At the current moment, the Jazz are averaging 101.4 points per game. This is vastly inferior to the 116.0 the Warriors drill each night. Barring some miracle, the Jazz are likely to get blown out this sportsbook online betting evening.
