The Oklahoma City Thunder (20-33) visit the Utah Jazz (40-14) at Vivint Arena at 9 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Thunder-Jazz odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.
The Thunder are on a six-game skid, last winning March 31 against the visiting Toronto Raptors. OKC is also 0-6 ATS across the past six outings, too. These two teams haven’t met since Dec. 28, a 110-109 win by the Jazz at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Jazz are looking to bounce back after a 125-121 loss against the visiting Washington Wizards, falling outright as a 10.5-point favorite. Utah has scored 121 or more points in three consecutive outings, and the Over is 3-1 across their past four contests.

Thunder at Jazz: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Jazz 123, Thunder 104
Money line (ML)
The Jazz (-1600) will cost you 16 times your potential return. That’s a horrible betting strategy, no matter how sure a thing it might be. Plus, Utah is coming off a straight-up loss as a double-digit favorite, so let that serve as a cautionary tale.

Against the spread (ATS)
The JAZZ -16.5 (-110) are worth playing lightly. This is a huge number, especially for a team coming off an upset loss to Washington last time out. But the Thunder +16.5 (-110) are horrific lately, they’re banged up, and they’re 0-6 SU/ATS over the past six.
And if it makes you feel better, Utah covered this number before, winning 114-75 over the Cavaliers March 29.
OVER 224.5 (-110) is worth a small-unit wager here, especially since Utah has thrown in at least 121 points in each of the past three. The concern is whether or not OKC can hang and hit triple digits. The Thunder is averaging 98.8 PPG across the past six outings.
