TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASEBALL SELECTION WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16TH
#584 UTAH (-7) over LA Clippers at 10 PM EST
In a nasty mood off back-to-back SU and ATS losses in Game 3 and Game 4 by 26 and 14 points respectively, the Jazz will bounce back in a big way inside the friendly confines of Vivint Smart Home Arena. Since January 1st, 2021, Utah has put together a lucrative 35-4 SU and 26-11-2 ATS mark in its last 39 games and they’ll get back on track in a big way here.
This is actually a strong wagering spot for the home team. In the NBA Playoffs, teams priced as a favorite or an underdog of +2.5 or less own a lucrative 67-25 SU and 56-35-1 ATS record provided they check in off back-to-back double-digit postseason losses. If our “play on” side is running in the comforts of home, this situation jets to a reliable 65-22 SU and 53-32-1 ATS including an elite 55-20 US and 50-24-1 ATS if their opponent holds a team won/loss percentage of .590 or better. Also, in the NBA Playoffs competing at home off two or more straight up losses, the Jazz sport a respectable 20-9 SU and 18-10-1 ATS mark including a powerful 20-5 SU and 17-7-1 ATS if they are priced as a favorite or an underdog of +3 or less.
Surprisingly, when coming off a SU and ATS win in the NBA Playoffs, the Clips have been at their financial worst in their next game inking a horrible 12-28 SU and 11-27-2 ATS mark including a woeful 9-24 SU and 8-24-1 ATS provided both teams are running with three days of rest or less. With those two parameters live and Los Angeles priced as an underdog or a favorite of -5.5 or less, this team trend falls to a filthy 5-20 SU 4-20-1 ATS. That spells serious trouble for the Clippers.
The Jazz are the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and, with the Clippers minus the services of Kawhi Leonard (right knee injury), they will make a statement off those two embarrassing blowout losses. Take Utah. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
