Utah Jazz Betting
The Utah Jazz managed to notch back-to-back victories against the LA Clippers and the San Antonio Spurs. Their most recent match was a 21-point victory over San Antonio and credit Bojan Bogdanovic for getting off the shooter’s slump. The Croatian tallied 28 points and six three-pointers. Donovan Mitchell chipped in with 22 points, nine assists, and five triples while Jordan Clarkson did 18 points off the bench. Rudy Gobert just manned the paint with 16 rebounds and six blocks while Mike Conley was steady giving the team 15 points. The emergence of Bogdanovic’s game is huge for the Jazz as they add another well-oiled gun to their deep roster.

Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets are heading to this game coming from back-to-back losses and it doesn’t help them as Kevin Durant will be out of this game due to COVID-19 protocols. The forward will be out for four games and much is now expected from Kyrie Irving to carry a bigger load. Their most recent loss was by one point against Washington Wizards and he had 30 points, 10 assists, five rebounds, two steals, and two blocks. Caris LeVert will have to step up in the starting roster replacing Durant and will try to fill in most of the void. Joe Harris and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot are also expected to show up as Durant’s loss is a team’s load to bear.
Players to Watch: K. Durant SF 5 GP 5 GS 33.4 MIN 28.2 PTS 0.6 OR 5.6 DR 6.2 REB 4.4 AST 1.4 STL 1 BLK 3 TO 2 PF 1.5 AST/TO 28.34 PER
