The Heat also played last night and now they are heading into Utah to play one of the only teams in the NBA that plays slower and better defense than they do. With that in mind, the under at 189 in the NBA Odds looks like a steal right now.

Miami Heat vs. Utah Jazz

After beating up on the Nuggets last night, the Heat are heading on the road tonight yet again to play the Jazz in Utah. While the Nuggets play at one of the faster paces in the league, the Jazz are quite the opposite. With both teams great on defense and both preferring a slower paced game, even a total of 189 points may be too low.

A total if 189 would imply a final score of about 99-89, but I don’t even think the Jazz can get to 99 points against this Heat team.

Miami owns the league’s fourth-best defensive rating, right behind the Jazz and they are holding teams they play to just a .475 effective field goal percentage. The only team holding their opponent’s to worse shooting numbers is…you guessed it…the Jazz.

With the slow pace and stout defense, the under is one of the better NBA Odds plays of the day on this six-game slate.
