The Oklahoma City Thunder (24-55) visit Vivint Smart Home Arena Wednesday to take on the Utah Jazz (47-32). Tip-off is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Thunder vs. Jazz odds and lines, and make our expert NBA picks, predictions and bets.
The Thunder are coming off a 4-point home victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, coving as 3.5-point favorites. Oklahoma City is 9-2 against the spread (ATS) in its last 11 games, but only 2-2 in its last 4.
The Thunder, without most of its key players, were led by F Jaylen Hoard, who scored 24 points and grabbed 21 rebounds in their 98-94 win over Portland. OKC has been long eliminated from playoff contention.
As for the Jazz, it still has seeding to play for and potentially home-court advantage on the line. Utah is 5th in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of the Denver Nuggets.
Utah also played Tuesday night, pushing as 6-point home favorites. It won 121-115 in overtime against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Jazz are 0-7-1 ATS in its last 8 games.

Thunder at Jazz odds, lines, picks and predictions
Jazz 115, Thunder 101
The Thunder are actually an enticing play here, but I’ll opt to pass even at +1100 as the Jazz have the motivation to win this game, unlike the Suns did against OKC the other night.
