Utah Jazz vs New Orleans Pelicans 1/6/2020 Betting Odds
Utah Jazz Betting
Utah has been rolling after getting Jordan Clarkson via trade and he has been then third-leading scorer for the team behind Donovan Mitchell and Bojan Bogdanovic. But in their last game, Clarkson only had 7 points and it was an off night for him. The Jazz flexed their depth as Emmanuel Mudiay and Georges Niang combined for 27 points and 11 rebounds. Niang barraged the Magic with five three-pointers as well. The Jazz looked a different team and they are still without Mike Conley whose return closes in. Utah has been an exciting team to watch and they will go up against another young team that is pulling their act together. Their depth and Rudy Gobert controlling the boards will be their huge keys to winning this game.

New Orleans Pelicans Betting
The Pelicans have won five of their last six games and their only loss came from the powerhouse Los Angeles Lakers by just only 10 points. Lonzo Ball is living up to the hype he was given as he had 24 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. Five other Pelicans scored double-figures while Derrick Favors has stepped up well in that center position. Still, no sight of Zion Williamson coming back but so far, this team has picked up themselves. Against the Jazz, they need to find ways to beat Rudy Gobert inside and limit his production. By preventing the Jazz to get more second-chance points will get them into the striking distance to steal this game from Utah.
