TOTAL OF THE WEEK (10* NBA) LET'S DESTROY APRIL
Charlotte vs. Utah,
04/01/2019 21:00 EDT,
Score: 102 - 111
Total: -109/+218 Under
The set-up: The Hornets’ playoff hopes are fading fast after back-to-back losses, including to the Warriors just last night. I think that Kemba Walker and company come in predictably “gassed” here in the second game of the back-to-back. Utah will look to keep its sharp play vs. “lesser” competition going strong, as it comes in having won four straight over the Wizards, Lakers, Suns and Bulls. From a situational stand point, I think this one sets up great for a lower-scoring affair.
The pick: Take it for what you will as well though, but Charlotte has seen the total go “under” the number in six of eight already this year revenging a SU loss vs. an opponent as a home favorite, while Utah has seen the total go “under” in eight of its last 12 when playing with two days rest. This number is a little high, play the “under.”
