Prediction

Jazz 125, Clippers 118

Moneyline

The home team has won 6 of the last 7 matchups between these teams.

The Jazz are 14-8 at home this season but just 3-3 in their last 6 home games.

The Clippers have lost their last 4 road games and are 10-12 away from home this season. They have lost 8 of their last 10 games.

I like the Jazz to win Wednesday, but you shouldn’t wager more than 2 times your potential return on the moneyline. Look to the spread for better value.
