Ryley's Daily Basketball Pick: March 29th
The banged-up Utah Jazz visit Los Angeles to take on the Clippers at 10 EST.
This is the sixth consecutive road game for the Jazz, as they lost four out of their last five games. The Jazz are 15-22-1 ATS on the road this year. As an underdog, the Jazz are 2-8 overall. Utah is 6-10-1 when their opposing team has a rest advantage.
The Clippers are coming into this game looking to get the train back on the tracks after losing five straight. The Clippers are 20-16 overall on their home court. As favorites, the Clippers are 22-13 overall. Rudy Gobert is questionable and could miss his second consecutive game, which would lead to easy buckets in the paint for the Clippers. Paul George is a game-time decision which would only be a bonus for the Clippers.
In Utah's last four road games, they have lost the 2nd half in each of those four. I expect the Jazz road struggles to continue, they look tired and are ready to get back to Utah. Following a loss, the Jazz are worst in the NBA at 9-19-1 ATS. In a get-right spot at home for the Clippers, I expect them to come out victorious. My pick of the day is Clippers ML
