Total: 221.00 | -115.00 Over
Both teams have been involved in several lower-scoring games of late, but the situation and the numbers/trends now all point finally to a higher-scoring affair in our opinion. Portland is 6-12 after back-to-back wins. It's seen the total go "under" in four straight. They beat the Jazz 121-105 as 3.5-point dogs back in November. Note that Utah has seen the total go "over" in five of its last six in trying to avenge a SU/ATS road loss vs. an opponent. The Jazz are off back-to-back losses so will be pushing the pace, as they've now seen the total go "under" the number in six straight. Regardless, tonight's O/U line is now a few points TOO low, as we're anticipating this contest to eclipse the posted number sooner, rather than later; the play is indeed on the "over!"
