Utah Jazz 2012

The Utah Jazz is playing each game as though it were their last as they try to qualify for the playoffs. April 2 they will travel to the Rose Garden to take on the Portland Trailblazers in a key Western Conference matchup.

Utah has an overall record of 27-26 and has lost three straight to fall into ninth place in the Western Conference playoff hunt. Before their three straight losses the Jazz were in the eighth and final playoff spot but now find themselves a game and half behind the Denver Nuggets and on the outside looking in.

Portland has an overall record of 24-28 and is in 12th place in the West. Odds are they will not qualify for a spot in the playoffs, but they can certainly act as a spoiler for other teams. The Trailblazers have won just four of their last 10 games

Both teams have players nursing injuries. Raja Bell is out for the Jazz with a bad knee. Three players for the Trailblazers LaMarcus Aldridge, Elliot Williams and Shawne Williams are out.

Utah leads the head to head matchup 6-4 SU and ATS against Portland over the last 10 games between the two. The total has been OVER 6 times and UNDER 4 times in those same 10 games. This season the teams have met just once. In late January, Utah defeated Portland in Utah 93-89. The Jazz covered a two-point spread as the favorite in the game. The teams combined for just 182 points to payout to the UNDER bettors as the line was at 186.

Utah is 1-4 SU in their last five games, while Portland has a record of 2-2 SU in their last four games. Utah has to find their winning ways again or find themselves too far out of the eighth spot to qualify for the playoffs. The Jazz less the points in this is a good choice, while the total will end UNDER.
