NBA Odds: Thunder Aim to Get on Track Against Jazz. The struggles of the Oklahoma City Thunder have been one of the biggest storylines in the NBA this season. On Tuesday, they’ll host the Utah Jazz as they try to put something together.
The Jazz play Monday night at home against the Washington Wizards. Going into that game, Utah had won five in a row, averaging 115.4 points per game. This surge in production has boosted them to 23rd in points per game (103.1 points per game on the season). A portion of the production is coming from rookie Donovan Mitchell, who put up an average of 21.8 points per game over his last five games.
The Thunder acquired Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in the offs eason, and were perceived to be one of the top teams in the Western Conference. It hasn’t played out that way as they are below .500. They are 24th in the NBA in points per game at 102.7 as the team is still working out how to mesh Russell Westbrook, George and Anthony together.
The Thunder are 7-3 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 meetings, with seven going under the posted total. The Jazz won 96-87 at home on October 21.
