Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz are coming off a win against the Portland Trail Blazers that was made controversial after Damian Lillard spoke out in the media about a missed call by the referee. It turns out that the call was indeed a missed one and if it was not for the faulty call, they could have been in a six-game skid. Right now, the Jazz have a 33-19 record and a loss here would mean the Houston Rockets overtaking them at the NBA Standings. This team needs to slow things down as the Houston Rockets small ball lineup looks to run them in circles. Once the tempo has been dictated, they will need their big men to perform.

Houston Rockets Betting

Two games into their ‘smaller ball’ lineup, the Houston Rockets split their games 1-1. Contrastingly, they beat the NBA Western Conference leaders Los Angeles Lakers then lost to a non-playoff contender in the Phoenix Suns by a huge 36-point blowout. Robert Covington is doing great for them after the trade but they still need to prove to the entire league that this type of basketball will work. It changes things up especially, that Russell Westbrook is taking a rest in this game while Eric Gordon is questionable against the Jazz.
