Portland vs. Utah,

Score: 115 - 121
Total: -106/+219 Over
The Trail Blazers' had their four-game winning streak abruptly end last time out as the club was 4-of-29 from beyond the arc. Im now expecting a shooting bounce back effort here tonight in Utah behind the 11th fastest pace in the league and the 10th ranked ppg offence. Meanwhile, Im betting on a up-trending Utah offence averaging 110.4 ppg in their L/5 overall, to fire power back on rested legs after their Christmas break. This projected group of scenarios will make for a score according to my projections that slams into the plus 220 mark on the combined totals scoreboard.
PORTLAND is 20-8 OVER when playing 6 or less games in 14 days over the last 2 seasons.
The Trailblazers are 11-0 OVER L/11 off a loss as a home favorite facing an opponent getting less than 25 percent or their rebounds on the offensive end with a combined average of 236.8 ppg scored.
NBA Teams like the Jazz are 20-0 OVER L/20 with rest off a loss in a road game when the total is at least 15 points more than their season-to-date average with a combined average of 247.5 ppg scored.
