Utah – Charlotte: forecast and rate. “Jazz” will effectively play the 1st quarter


Having won eight matches in a row, as well as powerfully speaking at home, “Utah” unexpectedly lost in two games in a row at home. At first she did not put the squeeze on “San Antonio”, and then clearly did not tune in to the game with “Washington”. For the third time in a row, Queen Sneijder’s team will certainly not allow defeat, especially since they will have to play with tired “hornets”, which are just awful in defense. The “jazzmen” will not miss such a chance to interrupt a series of defeats. However, the bookmakers, realizing who is the clear favorite of the meeting, offer gigantic odds on the hosts. I would note that “Utah” plays especially powerfully at home in the first quarter, having won 13 starting 12-minutes in 16 matches. However, even here a handicap is offered for “Utah” at (-5), which is a lot for one quarter.


“Hornets”, although they play almost in the fighting lineup, but still going through a very difficult calendar. The day before, nothing could be done with the “Phoenix”, which threw 137 points into the “Charlotte” basket. The Hornets have lost 6 of their last 8 away battles, in seven of which they have conceded at least 120 points. With defense, “Charlotte” is very bad. At times, an attack neutralizes these problems, but in the case of Utah, such an alignment is unlikely. Moreover, LaMelo Ball and company have very poor start on the road. “Charlotte” have lost 13 first quarters in 18 meetings with just five victories.

However, in this meeting, I would like to consider a bet not on the outcome in the first quarter, but on the total of “Utah” more than 31.5 points. The fact is that “Charlotte” on the road in the starting 12 minutes concedes an average of 31.9 points (30th place). At the same time, it is “Utah” that is the most productive team in the first quarter at home, gaining 31.3 points.

The total of 31.5 points of the first quarter has made its way in 5 of Jazz’s last 6 home games. At the same time, “Charlotte” on the road missed at least 30 points in 7 of the last 8 battles, and the opponent’s proposed total made it through in half of the matches.
