TOM STRYKER’S FREE NBA BASKETBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, MARCH 29TH
#526 UTAH (-) over Washington at 9:05 PM EST
Currently on a lucrative 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS run, Utah will have no trouble rolling past Washington on Friday night. After dropping five straight, the Wizards picked up a win at cover in the desert over the dismal Suns on Wednesday and they will have their hands full in this mismatch.
Plenty of history backs this investment too. In the last 55 battles between these two non-conference foes, the Jazz have danced their way to a highly profitable 38-17 SU and 36-17-2 ATS record. If Utah hits the hardwood off a pointspread loss, this team trend explodes to a sensational 21-5-2 ATS including 17-3-1 ATS if Washington was on the road last. Also, at home battling an opponent that carries a team won/loss percentage less than .500, the Jazz hold a rewarding 46-6 SU and 34-15-3 ATS mark provided their foe does not arrive off a blowout win of four points or more.
Fading Washington on the road won’t be a problem either. As a guest, the Wizards have lost their magic notching a weak 10-39 SU and 13-34-2 ATS record in their last 49 games. In this role competing against a non-division foe, Wash drops to a nasty 7-32 SU and 8-29-2 ATS including just 1-19 SU and 3-15-2 ATS if the Wiz are shagging +5.5 or more. Also, as a road dog grabbing +9 or more arriving off a straight up road win, Washington holds a timid 6-47 SU and 18-35 ATS mark.
With the Wizards officially eliminated from playoff contention, the effort from Washington will be in question. Fortunately, the Jazz are in the playoffs and they’ll take full advantage of that. Take Utah. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
