Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz has been inconsistent and most of their players are still shaking off some rust. They are coming to this matchup against the San Antonio Spurs carrying a 3-2 record and hope to seal their first back-to-back wins of the season. Their most recent matchup was a convincing victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, 106-100. Mike Conley was the best player for the team as he tallied 33 points, seven assists, and seven three-pointers. Donovan Mitchell had a fair night doing just 15 points while Rudy Gobert did 12 points and nine boards. Some players are still feeling their way inside the Jazz system this year.

San Antonio Spurs Betting

The San Antonio Spurs suffered a three-game losing streak heading to this game and two of which are back-to-back losses against the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers. This team hopes to turn things around soon before they sink further to a 2-4 record. During their last match against the Lakers, they lost only by six points, 103-109. Keldon Johnson stepped up giving the team a double-double with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and five three-pointers as he tries to fill in the shoes of LaMarcus Aldridge. DeMar DeRozan followed through with 23 points, nine boards, and seven assists but their efforts for the past games do not reflect their current standing.
