Utah Jazz vs Sacramento Kings 5/16/2021 Betting Odds
Utah Jazz Betting
The Utah Jazz just needs another win to lock up the best record in the entire NBA and will carry the home court advantage all throughout the playoffs. Their record is now at 51-20 and trails the Phoenix Suns by just one game. If the Jazz lose, they have to pray that the Suns lose their matchup against the San Antonio Spurs in order not to fall to second place. This team is still expected to rest Donovan Mitchell but so far, the supporting cast has been doing well without him. Bojan Bogdanovic and Jordan Clarkson have been sharing the load and stepping up to keep the momentum going.

Sacramento Kings Betting
The Sacramento Kings are out of contention for a playoff position and they are already looking at making some changes in the off-season. This team should look to boost their roster and hope a good draft position lands on their laps during the NBA lottery. This team has not been playing with a full roster with DeAaron Fox being sidelined because of quarantine. Richaun Holmes, Harrison Barnes and Marvin Bagley are expected to sit out this game as well. The role players of the Kings have a chance to show their potential in this game but nonetheless, it is a non-bearing game for them.
