New York Knicks Betting

The New York Knicks has been very inconsistent. They were on a three-game winning streak but lost twice in a row heading to this match against the Utah Jazz. The team runs through RJ Barrett as when he is having an off-night, the rest of the team follows. The second-year player needs to find that consistency inside the basketball court along with Elfrid Payton and Immanuel Quickley. Julius Randle had been the most consistent player and anchor for the Knicks while Mitchell Robinsons mans the defensive paint well. Reggie Bullock has been given starter minutes but so far, he needs to perform and provide better numbers.

Players to watch: J. Randle PF 18 GP 18 GS 36.8 MIN 22.7 PTS 1.5 OR 9.8 DR 11.3 REB 6.1 AST 0.8 STL 0.2 BLK 3.5 TO 3.4 PF 1.7 AST/TO 20.59 PER

R. Barrett SG 18 GP 18 GS 36.2 MIN 17.4 PTS 1.6 OR 5.5 DR 7.1 REB 3.4 AST 0.7 STL 0.3 BLK 1.8 TO 2.4 PF 1.8 AST/TO 13.42 PER

Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz has a prime chance of climbing up the NBA standings even further as the LA Clippers will be without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard who are in quarantine. Donovan Mitchell has been playing well and has his flashes of Dwyane Wade in him. Joe Ingles and Bojan Bogdanovic have been playing better and the winning streak has been part of the results. Jordan Clarkson has been the deadliest player coming off the bench in the entire NBA and will give you quality minutes and efficient scoring. Royce O’Neal shows that he has good passing skills and could work along with Rudy Gobert.

Players to Watch: D. Mitchell SG 16 GP 16 GS 33.2 MIN 24.3 PTS 1 OR 3.1 DR 4.1 REB 5 AST 0.8 STL 0.4 BLK 3.2 TO 1.9 PF 1.6 AST/TO 19.59 PER
