Utah Jazz Betting
The Utah Jazz stake their three-game winning streak against the Celtics. The Jazz need a win badly as they try to break out of a tie with the Houston Rockets. Though they lost to Boston the last time they met, the Jazz may have a chance against a struggling Celtics quintet. Tasked to lead the Jazz are Donovan Mitchell and Bojan Bogdanovic. Both will have ample offensive support, most of which should come from rainbow country.

Boston Celtics Betting
The Celtics are struggling and hope to stay the course. They have dropped to third spot in the Eastern Conference, partly because of key players out injured. Kemba Walker remains out of action and Gordon Hayward recently joined him in sickbay. It will be up to Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to hold up the fort offensively. Defense should also help with the Celtics holding down the opposition to just 106.9 points per contest.
