NBA PREDICTION: Utah Jazz - Philadelphia 76ers
- Title : NBA PREDICTION: Utah Jazz - Philadelphia 76ers
jazz have covered 11 of their past 12 home games, and I'll bank on them to keep rolling tonight. Philly's bench is struggling without sixth man Shake Milton. Utah, meanwhile, is playing unselfish, joyous basketball. Jazz have won their past 12 home games, with the last 11 victories coming by at least 11 points. Lay it.
I believe this spread is a bit too high if 76ers missing players. Joel Embiid is being listed as questionable with his troublesome back and being that it's the last 4 -game. Philly has covered just 5 of its past 22 as a road games. AND Jazz are 11-1in their past 12 at home.
Jazz are ona impressive run. They have won their last seven games and covered in their last six. They have beaten good teams too, polishing off Boston, Milwaukee, and Miami in succession leading to this one. Point guard Mike Conley is questionable for this one and they are showing some good depth by winning easily without him right now. Donovan Mitchell has been on a heater too. There is no weakness to this team right now.
76ers are underdogs in this game, something they have been only four times all season. They are just 1-3 in these situations so the oddsmakers are doing a pretty good job of identifying where this team is going to struggle. Embiid is having a great season but if you can neutralize him, which is something Utah looks to be uniquely able to do, the rest of the team gets pretty ordinary pretty fast. When you layer in that Utah is once again the hottest team in NBA is it hard to get down on the 76ers tonight.
Utah comfortably took care of Miami Heat on Saturday, and they can send a real statement by covering against Philadelphia to. Im pretty sure about that.
