Utah Jazz vs Indiana Pacers 5/6/20 Betting Odds
Utah Jazz Betting
The Jazz is one of the teams in the NBA Western Conference that had streaks of wins and losses during the 2019-20 season. They were once the second-placed team behind the Lakers but fell down to the fifth place. This team is led by combo guard Donovan Mitchell and former two-time defensive player of the year, Rudy Gobert. Both players are given a rating of 87 overall with Mitchell having an A+ in inside scoring, mid-range and potential while Gobert is A+ in inside defense and potential.
Bojan Bogdanovic is the third scorer for the Jazz with an 81 overall rating. Utah is considered a very deep team with Jordan Clarkson coming off from the bench with an 80 overall while Mike Conley is the team’s starting point guard at 78 overall. Joe Ingles shares minutes in the shooting guard and small forward position with his 77 overall. Emanuel Mudiay and Tony Bradley each have a 76 overall while Georges Niang has 75.
Indiana Pacers Betting
This Pacers team had been a surprise as they were not expected to go this high in the season with Victor Oladipo missing three months to rehabilitate an injury. He is at 83 overall but the bigger surprise was Dmonatas Sabonis who blossomed to an NBA All-Star and he now leads the team with an 85 overall with an A+ in mid-range scoring. Malcolm Brogdon was an off-season acquisition and despite missing a few games, he was able to stabilize the team as the starting point guard. He is at 83 overall like Mitchell and they get help in the paint from TJ Warren and Myles Turner who are at 82 and 78 overall rating respectively.
The Pacers also have a good bench with Jeremy Lamb at 79 overall while T.J. McConnell and Doug McDermott each have a 77 overall. Justin Holiday and T.J. Leaf deepens the rotation as both of them have a 76 overall.
Utah Jazz vs Indiana Pacers Betting Picks
This is going to be an exciting simulation game and between both teams, Bet On NBA Games feel that the Pacers have the tools to stop the Jazz.
