Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz know that every win counts to keep their spot in the Western Conference standings. Utah is coming off a bounce back win, defeating the Washington Wizards 129-119. Donovan Mitchell and Bojan Bogdanovic led the way for the Jazz, spoiling the 42-point effort of Bradley Beal. They still need to play good defense against a struggling Cavs five to make it back-to-back wins.

Collin Sexton and Kevin Love need to find a way to spark the Cavs if they want to get back on the winning track.
