#JazzOdds Week 1 Recap

So the Jazz started 0-3 which has its own good and bad qualities depending on where you stand on results this season vs. draft status for 2014. Since SLC Dunk does an excellent job recapping games, stats, and results, we're going to focus strictly at how the Jazz did in the eyes of Vegas. Here's how Week 1 of the season went:

OKC 101-98 (Jazz were +6.5, O/U was 194). If you picked Jazz over, congrats!

Winners: @bjcseven and @KennChapman17

PHX 87-84 (Jazz were +3, O/U was 196). The line fluctuated between 2.5 and 3.5, so that Bledsoe three potentially moved a lot of money from one side to the other. Unfortunately, I kept it at 3 so we get 1/2 points this week! If you picked under and either team, enjoy your 0.5.

Half-winners: @naten28, @bjcseven, @OhioHadley, @Lord_Chadeous, @samq626, @UtahJazzPodcast, @hamblindave, and @A24Brett.

HOU 104-93 (Jazz were +6, O/U was 199.5). Things were looking good for those picking the Jazz until we realized the third quarter hadn't been played. A 30 point swing from a Jazz top lead of 19 will make any gambler cry bad beat, but that's why they call it gambling. If you had Houston and under, tally your point.

Winners: @rxmike12, @carty64, @hamblindave, @dianaallen, @naten28, @seanp33, @samq626

Half-winner: @jazzeduteman (who took the Rockets, but failed to leave an over/under guess)

To recap: Jazz go 1-1-1 (stupid ties) against the spread, and are 1 over/2 under for the score totals. Remember, it's never too late to start playing #JazzOdds... it's a fun way to even out the playing field game by game. If you have any questions on how this works or what this is, feel free to comment here or hit me up @RxMike12 on Twitter.

We'll be back Tuesday morning at Brooklyn! (I'm guessing we'll be around +9.5...)
