Take: over the total.
Reason: Your free pick for Saturday, March 8th, 2014, comes in the NBA as Jazz and the 76ers meet in Philadelphia. Utah isn't playing much defense, 15th in the NBA in points allowed, 25th in field goal shooting defense allowing .464% shooting by opponents. They gave up 104 this week in a loss at Washington and this is the second of a back to back spot after playing the Knicks last night....tired legs means bad defense. The over is 4-1 in Utah's last 5 games vs. a team with a winning percentage below .400. And speaking of bad defense no one is worse or lazier at the defensive end than the 76ers, 30th in points allowed (111 ppg) and second to last allowing .469% shooting by opponents. The Oklahoma City Thunder defeat the woeful Philadelphia 76ers 125-92 on Tuesday night. The 76ers have allowed at least 100 points in 14 of the 15 losses during their skid. All but three of the defeats have been by double digits. The over is 6-0 in 76ers last 6 vs. a team with a losing record. When these teams meet the over is 16-5 in the last 21 meetings, including 7-3 over the total in the last 10 meetings in Philadelphia. Play the Jazz/76ers over the total.
