Utah Jazz Betting
Boban Bogdanovic has been a huge acquisition for the Utah Jazz and he has been the cutting edge for the team against their opponents. Right now, the Jazz are 6th in the deep Western Conference. With no Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell has been doing the court general duties. In their last game against Charlotte, he had 20 points, nine assists and four rebounds. Bogdanovic led the team with 26 points while Rudy Gobert is strong inside with 17 points, 19 rebounds and three blocks. Overall this team has been complete in every position but they need that extra push to enter the top 4 teams in the west. Against the Heat at home, they would need to step up on the defensive end especially on the wings.
