Jazz at Bucks picks and predictions


Bucks 114, Jazz 112



I like the Jazz (+150) to cover but am not confident enough to play them straight up. Look to the points for value.

Against the spread

BET JAZZ +4.5 (-115).

The Jazz continue to shock NBA fans and are one of the best ATS teams in the league, covering their last 3 outings.

They’ve done that by their highly efficient offense, ranking 2nd in points per game (117.9), 9th in field goal percentage (47.6%) and 7th in three-point percentage (37.0%).

They also have elite 3-point defense, ranking 3rd in opponents’ three-point shooting (33.7%). The Jazz are 9-6 ATS on the road as well, one of just 11 teams with a road-covering record better than .500.

With the Bucks’ 2nd-best offensive option injured and their 2 other stars both showing up on the injury report, I would be hesitant to back them here BET JAZZ +4.5 (-115).


LEAN UNDER 229.5 (-105).

The combination of Sexton and Middleton being out should hurt the offensive firepower in this game.
