The Jazz go to Golden State to take on the Warriors in a huge matchup for the Western Conference playoff race. Get NBA odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Utah Jazz (40-37) are in a big time fight with the Lakers for the last spot in the Western Conference playoffs. The Jazz record in their last 10 games is identical to the Lakers at 6-4 and they trail the Lakers by just half a game overall. The Jazz have struggled incredibly on the road, however, which could really kill them when it comes to playoff chances. They are 11-27 on the road this season and three of their last five games of the season will be played away from Utah. The Jazz can not afford to drop any games the rest of the way.
The Warriors (44-32) are a lot safer when it comes to the Western Conference playoffs. Golden State has not clinched a spot yet but are ahead of the ninth place Jazz by four and a half games and it is almost impossible for them to get bounced from the top eight. Most likely, the Warriors will finish in sixth and would play the Denver Nuggets in the first round. Golden State is 7-3 in their last 10.
Utah is 40-36-1 against the spread and 16-21-1 ATS on the road. The Warriors are 38-37-1 ATS and 21-16 against the spread at home.
I think the Warriors are going to severely hurt Utah’s chances for the playoffs on Sunday night. It has been too hard for the Jazz to win on the road and I don’t see it happening in Golden State. With that said look for a ton of points so bet the over at the sportsbook.
