At 24-4 SU, the Golden State Warriors have the best record in the NBA, but they’ve recently hit an ATS slide that’s seen them cover the spread in just one of their last six games. At 13-14-1 ATS on the season, oddsmakers haven’t made betting on the Warriors easy as they’ve faced double-digit spreads in 21 of their 28 games and will face another one tonight, opening at -11.5 vs Utah.

- The Jazz are 2-10 SU and ATS in their last 12 games on the road vs teams with winning records.
- The Jazz are 0-6 SU in their last six games on the road vs the Warriors.
In case you’re wondering, the Warriors are just 9-12 ATS as double-digit favorites this season. They might be running into the Jazz at the wrong time as they’re playing their best basketball of the season, winning seven of their last eight games which includes covers in six of their last seven games. Utah has been a double-digit dog just once this season, to Golden State naturally, where they covered as 11.5-point dogs, but failed to win straight-up.
The game opened with a total of 209.5 points which will be one of the lowest totals the Warriors face this season. Perhaps the lower than normal total has to do with Golden State going UNDER in seven consecutive games, but bettors should also keep in mind that the Jazz are allowing just 94.6 points per game this season — good enough for best in the NBA. When the teams met earlier this month they combined for 205 points.
