Free Sacramento Kings vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
This game features two of the league’s fastest-paced teams. However, when the Jazz and Kings play other fast-paced teams, the games end up averaging fewer possessions than expected. Oftentimes, this means the game has the potential to go under the total.
Each team is also among the league leaders in offensive efficiency. When the Jaz face top offenses, their defensive does a good job slowing down their opponents. On average, they win 67% of these contests.
Good offenses score 8.7 points above expectation when facing the Kings defense. This has resulted in a 23% win percentage for Sacramento.
On average, the Kings are not affected by good defensive teams like the Jazz. However, this hasn’t led to wins as they are victorious at just a 23% rate.
When Utah takes on bad defensive similar to the Kings, they win 81% of the time, scoring 7.5 points above the league expectations.
In this game, I will be taking Sacramento to cover the 9 point spread.
