The Portland Trail Blazers who are ending a tough season will head to Utah tonight to take on the Jazz and they prepare for the playoffs. Find your odds at BetOnline sportsbook.
The Utah Jazz started the season off on a roll and cooled a bit in the second half, but still had enough in the tank to qualify for a playoff berth in the West. You might be surprised if you haven’t followed them that the Jazz are actually spurred by an above average offensive club that averages just about exactly 100 points per game. The Jazz do have some liabilities on offense though as evident by the fact that they let up just about 99 points per game.
The Trail Blazers have been an enigma all season and will once again not be a participant in this year’s playoffs. The Blazers are equally mediocre on both sides of the coin as they are neither strong on offense or defense. They are simply playing out the string and we will see how motivated they are tonight.
The Jazz have played well lately as Utah has won four out of their last five games heading into their match-up with the Trail Blazers. Portland has dropped six in a row heading into Thursday’s match-up with the Jazz. The Trail Blazers are also just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games on the road against Utah.
