Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz should encounter little resistance dispatching the Detroit Pistons this weekend. That all depends on how Donovan Mitchell and Bojan Bogdanovic come out to player. The Jazz are good for 111.5 points offensively, numbers Detroit will have to pull down. Utah is doing equally well defensively, holding down opponents to just 108.2 points per game. With most of the Pistons top guns out, the Jazz should have the edge defensively.

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons woes continue as they try to finish the season with most stars out injured. Christian Wood, Brandon Knight and Luke Kennard need to lead the offensive attack. Detroit will have its hands full crack the Jazz defense which is the 9th best in the league. The Pistons limit the opposition go just 110.8 points per contest but may have to do better against Utah.
