Betting on the Toronto Raptors

  • Regular Season Record: 23-29

While they have had a disappointing campaign, the Toronto Raptors are still competing for a playoff spot, currently sitting 12th in the Eastern Conference but just 1.5 games out of the play-in. However, although they have played much better recently, they need to be more consistent in their results if they want to keep dreaming of the postseason.

Doing so seems to be more than a complicated mission for the Canadian team, which will play here the fifth game of a seven-game away tour, in which it has won two of the first four.

Although they battled evenly with their opponent for much of the game, the Raptors could not keep pace with the Phoenix Suns in their last game, and gave up the last quarter by 22-32 to end up falling by a final score of 106-114. In the game, Fred VanVlet was the team’s top scorer with 24 goals.

Betting on the Utah Jazz

  • Regular Season Record: 26-26

Still nowhere close to emulating the level it had during the first few months of the campaign, the Utah Jazz have managed to put in a much stronger performance in recent weeks, winning six of their last nine games to return to the playoff picture and move within 1.0 game of the playoff spots.

Even so, the Jazz need to keep improving to stay in the fight, given that they are in the middle of a tight midtable in the Western Conference, where only 2.0 games separate the 12th-ranked team from the 5th.

With Lauri Markkanen averaging 24.9 points per game, the Jazz’s main weapon this campaign has been their offense, which is the fourth best in the NBA with an average of 117.5 points per game. However, they have struggled defensively, averaging 116.3 points allowed per game (the ninth worst in the league).

The Raptors have looked much more competitive in recent weeks, but being away from home is not a big plus for them to keep that pace, given that they have an 8-17 away record and their offense is averaging just 112.8 points on the road.

For their part, the Jazz may not be a solid defensive team, but they have made up for that perfectly with their offense, which averages 120.0 points scored at home, an offensive output that has helped them win 17 of their 26 home games this campaign.

Both teams have shown signs of recovery recently, but the Jazz have looked much more consistent, and this time they will be on their home court, where they have performed the best this year. So, we expect them to take the win in what will surely be an entertaining matchup.

Prediction: Utah Jazz Spread.
