The San Antonio Spurs will take on the Utah Jazz at the Vivint Arena on Tuesday in their third matchup this year. Both teams have had their share of victories and defeats this season, and with the playoffs approaching, they will be looking to secure a win. In this news article, we will examine the pre-game information and offer our professional NBA picks and forecasts for this matchup.
Before we dive into the predictions, let’s take a quick look at the injury list for both teams.
Romeo Langford, Devin Vassell, Khem Birch, and Isaiah Roby will sit out for the Spurs due to their injuries.
On the other hand, Collin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson won’t be playing for the Jazz. Their absence will be felt, especially since they are two starting guards for Utah.
Our prediction for this game is that the Jazz will emerge victorious with a final score of 122-115. Despite the absence of their two starting guards, we believe that the Jazz has what it takes to defeat the Spurs for the 17th straight time.
San Antonio has struggled this season, winning only 14 out of their 61 games. On the other hand, the Jazz has a better record, winning 31 out of their 62 games.
Our recommended bet for this game is on the Jazz moneyline. However, the moneyline price seems too high, given the Spurs’ determination to end their losing streak. We suggest betting on the spread instead.
Against The Spread
We recommend betting on the Spurs +9.5 against the spread. Utah may find scoring challenging without their two starting guards, and San Antonio could take advantage of this opportunity.
The Spurs performed well in the first half of their game against the Jazz on Saturday, and if they hadn’t crumbled in the third quarter, they could have won.
The Jazz has had trouble winning by a wide margin against weaker opposition lately, and we expect the Spurs to put up a fight and keep the game close.
We suggest passing on the over/under bet for this game. The Under has hit in Utah’s last four games, and with the absence of their two starting guards, they might struggle to score. However, it’s too close for comfort, and we recommend avoiding this bet.
In conclusion, the Jazz will defeat the Spurs for the 17th straight time. However, the absence of their two starting guards makes this game more challenging than it appears.
We recommend betting on the Spurs +9.5 against the spread, as they will likely put up a good fight. We also advise passing on the over/under bet.
