Los Angeles Clippers @ Utah Jazz – 10:10 p.m. ET

NBA totals can be streaky. Look at these two teams’ first-round playoff series: The Clippers hit unders in five of seven games and cashed them in all three regular-season games against Dallas, while the Jazz hit overs in all five games against Memphis after going two of three in the regular season.

This matchup has been one for the unders – two of the regular-season games went under and the third was a push. Besides that, you’re looking at two of the best defensive teams in the league with Utah ranking third and L.A. ranking eighth. Additionally, the Clips ranked 28th in pace.

The public is playing the over at a 69% rate but the total has either dropped or stayed in place at most books. Root for defense tonight.

Pick: Under 221 (-113)*
