Utah Jazz vs. Oklahoma City Thunder. The NBA Pick for this game is Utah -7.5. The Jazz ranked 12th in offense and 10th on defense while the Thunder ranked 22nd in offense and 8th on defense. Utah is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 outings as a road favorite and the OVER is 5-2 in the Jazz’s last 7 games on the road. Oklahoma City’s Forward Trevor Ariza will not be playing on Monday due to a personal reason. Utah’s offense is one of the most efficient in the league at no.12 that will control the game against the young Thunders without Ariza. Final Score Prediction, the Utah Jazz will win and cover ATS at 114-107.
