(NBA) Cleveland vs. Utah, 04/02/2024 9:00 PM, Score: 129 - 113
Total: 115.50 | -113.00 Over
Result: Win
Even though the Jazz don't have anything to play for as they are out of the playoffs, they still get up for a team like Cleveland and have done well in the series against each other. The Jazz still average 116 points per game and allow 120 points per game. That is good for this total to go over because Cleveland has Donovan Mitchell back and that should add the extra offense needed in this game to go over. This team is motivated to push the team upwards in the standings now that he is back so look for a big game from him. The last time these two played, the total went well over the total in this game. The pace should be faster in this game as the Jazz like to push it, so more points will be scored in this game with more possessions.The Jazz also don't defend the three at all, and that is what the Cavaliers excel at so expect lots of points. Their last three head to head games have gone Over the Total, so expect a lot of points in this game as the total should get over 218.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Cleveland's last 5 games. The total has gone OVER in 6 of Cleveland's last 8 games against an opponent in the Western Conference. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Utah's last 5 games against Cleveland. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Utah's last 5 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference. Utah is 35-23 OVER in non-conference games over the last 2 seasons. Cleveland are 15-9 to the Over this season in non-conference games.

Best bet: take the Over the Total.
