Utah Jazz vs Toronto Raptors Betting Picks

Bookmakers are anticipating a really close game North of the Border, and that’s the reason why the NBA spread lines opened at 2.5 points.

Moneyline: The Raptors are 2-1 SU against the Jazz in the last three games and 8-0 at Scotiabank Arena. Bookmakers feel this game could go either way with both teams viewed as top-tier clubs in the NBA. Still, there’s a reason why the Raptors are undefeated at home. For that I pick Toronto.

ATS: In a game that is expected to be really close down to the very end, an extra 5 points would really help for either the dogs or the favorites. In this case, I think the Raptors could sink key baskets late to maybe take a five-point win and cover the spread in the process.

TOTALs: The total opened at 209 points. Both teams are coming off low-scoring games, and I expect the trend to spill over into Sunday’s ballgame.

Score Prediction: 103-98 Raptors
