Utah Jazz Betting
The Utah Jazz seems to find their missing piece by acquiring Jordan Clarkson via trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He has provided the Jazz with the spark off the bench which they sorely needed. Donovan Mitchell has manned the point guard position for this team and his assists this season has spiked up. They are still waiting for steady guard Mike Conley to arrive and fill in the position while Mitchell will go back to his natural position at the two-guard. Rudy Gobert will control the paint while Bojan Bogdanovic and Joe Ingles have formed a lethal combination at the wing. The Jazz seems to be a team that has found its fit and identity this season and they are not stepping on the brakes soon.

Washington Wizards Betting
This has been a nightmare season for the Washington Wizards as their injury list piled up most of their starters. Names in that injury list include John Wall, Bradley Beal, Thomas Bryant, Davis Bertans and rookie Rui Hachimura. So far, this team has been rolling with their second unit and they proved to be attack dogs as well. This has been a good time for Isaiah Thomas to get his rhythm back and leading this young Wizards team to a couple of victories lately. But this is the Jazz they are facing and the depth of their opponents and matchups will be a huge problem for the Jazz. Still, expect this Wizards team to fight since most of its active players are fighting to stay in the league and teams will be looking at them and maybe land a good contract soon.
Players to Watch: D. Bertans SF 29 GP 4 GS 29.7 MIN 15.3 PTS 0.9 OR 4.1 DR 5 REB 1.7 AST 0.6 STL 0.6 BLK 0.8 TO 2.6 PF 2.2 AST/TO 16.54 PER
