Lots of points are expected as the Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz meet up with the total set at 242.5. Both teams have been struggling on the defensive end ranking 23rd (Kings) and 27th (Jazz) seven in Offensive Rating.
The Kings hope to notch their third win in six games, whereas the Jazz look to snap their four-game losing streak after losing back-to-back contests to the Kings and Miami Heat.
Kings vs. Jazz Same Game Parlay Odds & Pick
The Parlay: (+700)
- Utah Jazz Margin — Win by 5 or More
- Mike Conley Over 8+ Assists
Utah Jazz by 5 or More
Last time these two teams met up Friday, the Jazz put up 124 points with a lot of balanced scoring. Utah were led by 36 points from Lauri Markkanen, 25 from Jordan Clarkson and 17 from Mike Conley. This is right on trend for the Jazz’s scoring.
Offensively Utah have been very efficient from the floor ranking fourth in offensive efficiency and fourth in points per game at 117.3 with that number even higher at home at 121.5. I like the Jazz to win by 5+ as they should be able to build off their 12-6 home record.
Mike Conley 8+ Assists
If the Jazz are going to get it done and snap their four game losing streak, they will need all the offensive help they can get. It’s difficult to try and pinpoint who will pop up with a big game, and with such a high game total, almost all offensive players have elevated numbers.
This leads me towards Mike Conley who is averaging 7.5 assists a game and has logged eight or more in three straight contests. Although his playing time has not been completely consistent, he should be logging around 30 minutes of game time and looks vital in orchestrating the Jazz’s offense. Although his points per game and scoring is way down this season, at this point he’s averaging a career high in assists.
