Utah Jazz (42-23) at Oklahoma City Thunder (40-24)
Ricky's 10* play on Under 217.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The under is 20-8 in the last 28 meetings.
- Both teams rank in the top 10 in the NBA in opponent's scoring avg.
- Both meetings during the regular season fell short of 217 points.
The verdict: These two teams should both show up on defense.
