Why should you put your money on the Jazz?

The Jazz are adroit at taking advantage of teams that are going through difficult situations. In the case of the Pelicans, New Orleans has been missing Anthony Davis and may have lost Eric Gordon for the remainder of the season, and the Jazz were able to pound the ball inside, with Derrick Favors pouring in 28 points. In the case of Golden State, the Warriors appear to be coasting a bit, as their weekend loss to the lowly Lakers indicates. The Jazz are good enough to jump out on the Warriors, who are not focusing as much on defense these days (as giving 113 points to the Magic shows) and put the clamps on defensively.

Why should you bet on Golden State?

It’s hard to bet against a home team that has won 45 straight in their own building. Stephen Curry keeps piling up record after record as well, becoming the first NBA player ever to hoist 300 three-point shots in one season. The Warriors need to shore up their defense and their ball control (they turned the ball over 24 times against the Magic) if they want to beat the Jazz, but they have shown the ability this season to come back from their hiccups.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I’m predicting the Warriors to defend their home floor and beat the Jazz, 120-111.
