The Toronto Raptors are on a three-game winning streak and they disposed of three NBA Western Conference teams in that stretch. Prior to that, the Raptors were on a three-game losing streak and this time around, the Utah Jazz is the toughest team that they will face in this road trip. Norman Powell has been a revelation for this team as he has been ripping the scoresheets lately. Against the Sacramento Kings, he finished with 31 points while shooting six three-pointers. He also had five assists, two steals and a block in the process. Kyle Lowry was solid doing 30 points, eight assists and three steals while Pascal Siakam did 23 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Utah Jazz Betting
After losing four straight games, the Utah Jazz won five straight games and that puts them a game and a half above the Oklahoma City Thunder for the fourth place in the NBA Western Conference standings. In their last game, they won against the Detroit Pistons by six points and Bojan Bogdanovic led the scoring attack as he finished with 32 points while Rudy Gobert is an instant double-double with 10 points, 12 rebounds, three steals and two blocks. Donovan Michell scored 25 points and it was enough for them to go over the Pistons. With the Rockets slumping, the Jazz should capitalize on the opportunity to get to a much comfortable position in the standings.
