The Utah Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Utah Jazz need a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 111 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 107.9 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24.2 points and 4.2 assists while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 20.2 points and 4.1 rebounds. Jordan Clarkson is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 13.7 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 38.3 percent from beyond the arc and 77.2 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.1 rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz have won six straight road games.
The Oklahoma City Thunder look for a win after winning eight of their last 10 games. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 110.8 points on 47.3 percent shooting and allowing 108.3 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 19.3 points and 6.1 rebounds while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19.2 points and 2.1 assists. Dennis Schroder is the third double-digit scorer and Chris Paul is dishing 6.8 assists.

The Jazz are 5-13-1 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Oklahoma City and 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The under is 20-8 in the last 28 meetings.
The Oklahoma City Thunder aren't nearly as profitable at home as they've been on the road this season, but they're still a solid home team where they win by an average of 3.9 points and shoot 48.5 percent from the field and 36.1 percent from deep. The Utah Jazz are highly inconsistent and it's tough to figure out which team is going to show up that particular day. The Oklahoma City Thunder are 40-24 against the spread on the season. I'll lay the bucket with OKC at home.
