Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz now owns an 8-4 record and currently the third-best team in the NBA Western Conference. This team is just coming off a game that bludgeoned the Atlanta Hawks by 24 points, 116-92. Donovan Mitchell scored 26 points and shot six three-pointers to lead the team. Ever since Bojan Bogdanovic managed to find his shooting stroke, the team added a new dimension in their offense. He had 17 points and drained three triples while Jordan Clarkson came off the bench with 16 points, seven rebounds, and four assists. Rudy Gobert controlled the paint with 15 points, 13 rebounds, and four blocks.
