Utah Jazz vs. Miami Heat Betting Odds & Pick from Jesse Schule: January 7th 2018

Utah Jazz vs. Miami Heat
NBA Betting Pick: MIA -181 odds (January 7th 2018)

Playing on the road in the NBA is a tough task at the best of times, but it’s even more challenging out of conference on the East Coast. The Utah Jazz have really struggled on the road, winning just three games of 19. Utah comes into Miami off a 98-91 loss at Denver, and the Jazz have lost eight of their last 10 overall. Six of those eight losses came by a double digit margin. One of those losses was a 107-83 loss at Denver. Here is what I said prior to that game: “Both the Jazz and the Nuggets are missing key players due to injury, but Denver has proven it has the depth to overcome adversity. The Nuggets have enjoyed a significant advantage at home in Denver. They are 11-3 straight up at home, and they have covered the spread in six of their last eight in Denver. The home team has won six straight in this series, and has covered the spread in all six of those games as well. Utah is just 3-13 on the road this season, only the Mavericks have lost more road games in the Western Conference. They are coming off a 103-89 home loss to Oklahoma City, and Rodney Hood struggled, hitting just 3-of-14 shots and scoring just nine points.

The Jazz have lost six of their last seven road games, and they are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points. Nikola Jokic has averaged over 22 points per game in his last three starts, and he won’t have to worry about Rudy Gobert tonight.” I see no reason why we should see a dramatically different result here tonight.

NBA Pick: Mark Franco betting the Magic +9 points on January 6th 2018

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Orlando Magic
NBA Pick: Magic +9 points (January 6th 2018)

After being short at the point guard spot for the last two months, the Cleveland Cavaliers could be on the verge of having too many players capable of running the offense. The Cavaliers will have Isaiah Thomas available for his second game of the season when they visit the Orlando Magic on Saturday and are anticipating the return of Derrick Rose.

Thomas sat out the first 36 games while recovering from a hip injury and scored 17 points in 19 minutes off the bench in a 127-110 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday — Cleveland’s lone win in the last five games — before sitting out the second night of a back-to-back at Boston on Wednesday.

The Magic snapped a 17-game losing streak in the series by trouncing the Cavaliers in Cleveland 114-93 on Oct. 21 as part of an 8-4 start.

Cleveland dropped its last five road games and opened the current five-game trip with a 102-88 loss to the Celtics on Cavaliers PF Kevin Love scored a season-low two points on 1-of-11 shooting in Wednesday’s loss and is questionable tonight.

Cavaliers are 15-34-2 ATS in their last 51 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400 and are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games.

Cavs win the game but the Magic get the cover.
