The Phoenix Suns and Utah Jazz meet tonight in Salt Lake City in a game that is littered with playoff ramifications for both. Up to date odds for this important game can be found at BetOnline sportsbook.
Head to head, the Suns are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Utah, while the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the road team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The Jazz are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall, but just 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. The Suns on the other hand are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a double-digit loss at home, but just 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest.
There are only two games left in the regular season and the Jazz are currently ahead of the Suns by one game for the Western Conference’s 8th playoff position. This is why this game is very big for both teams. If Utah can pull out a victory they will clinch that coveted playoff spot. If Phoenix should win then the battle for the last spot would go down to the seasons last day. The Suns have actually won the last 7 games between the two teams which is why they have to like their chances in tonight’s game. In the last meeting between these two teams earlier in the month of April the Suns won by a score of 107-105 and were spurred by a Steve Nash shot to win the game.
As can be expected these two teams will come out with a lot of intensity tonight. There is a playoff spot on the line and you can bet both teams want it bad. We do not know why the spread is even this high between two evenly matched teams who both have a lot at stake. We are going to take the Suns and the points in this one at best online sportsbooks.
