Atlanta vs. Utah,
02/01/2019 21:00 EDT,
Score: 112 - 128
Total: -110/+227 Under
*3 Star TGIF NBA Totals Takedown* The Utah Jazz were just humiliated in Portland on Wednesday night. Portland scored 45 points in the first quarter on their way to winning 132-105 over the Jazz. This is a Utah team that prides itself on defense, and their defense was at its very worst in their last game.
Utah now comes home to take on an Atlanta team that averages only 1.039 points per possession on the road this year. The Jazz should be focused on the defensive end here after that terrible performance in Portland.
There is a great angle backing this under. The under is a whopping 117-72 (61.9%) in Utah's home games against a team with a winning percentage of 50% or lower with a total of 194 or higher since 2006.
Utah tends to blow out bad teams and win with defense in these games. I expect a bounce back here and this is a very high total considering the spot.
Take the under.
