Pick
UTA (175) @ pinnacle

Money Line Mauling - Rickenbach NBA Rotation #541 Saturday 10* Top Play Utah Jazz Money Line +175 @ Los Angeles Clippers @ 8:35 ET - The Clippers are at home and down 2-0 in this series and so automatically they must win this game, right? That is the common thinking of course but, as we all know from experience, common thinking is not what you want to have to make money long-term in sports betting and I see this spot as an excellent value spot for grabbing the Jazz. Note that Utah is on a 4-0 SU run on the road while the Clippers are on a 1-4 SU run in home games! Yet everyone will remember Los Angeles winning Game 7 of their series with Dallas in LA but forget they lost 4 straight home games preceding that. Of course this is why we get fantastic line value in this spot. Prior to that Game 7 win over the Mavericks, the road team in Clippers games had actually prevailed as the SU winner in 6 straight games and 9 of 11 games. How many times are you going to get a great team like Utah - on a 6-game winning streak and winners in 8 of 9 - at a +175 price? Exactly! I certainly respect the Clippers but feel the Jazz are the better team in this series and I look for them to continue to prove that with an upset win in Game 3 to take a stranglehold on this series as they shock the masses tonight. Note from June 4th to tonight this will be the 5th game for the Clippers while the Jazz enter this game having played only twice since their June 2nd series-clinching win over Memphis. The road team is also the team with the fresher legs in this one. 10* UTAH +175

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
