Utah vs. Portland,

Score: 99 - 105
Total: -108/+195 Under
The Portland Trail Blazers and Utah Jazz just played in an absolute defensive battle last night. The Jazz came out on top at home by a final of 86-77 for 163 combined points. This is a home-and-home situation with Saturday's contest being played at Portland this time around.
I fully expect another low-scoring, defensive battle in the rematch tonight. The books have made a huge mistake by setting this number so high. These teams are obviously very familiar with each other after playing last night, and familiarity makes points hard to come by for both teams.
This has been a very low scoring series between these teams over the past couple of years. In fact, six of the last eight meetings have seen 190 or less combined points. They Jazz and Blazers have combined to average 187.3 points/game in those eight contests.
The UNDER is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 games following a S.U. win. The UNDER is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 vs. NBA Northwest opponents. The UNDER is 7-1 in Jazz last 8 vs. Western Conference. The UNDER is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. Bet the UNDER in this game Saturday.
