Jazz vs. Clippers Prediction & Pick
The Clippers will be without starters Paul George, Kawhi Leonard and role player Luke Kennard. But they'll face a Jazz squad without key players Rudy Gay and Mike Conley. This sets up an interesting matchup of role players and a true test of which bench is deeper.
LA is getting by without Paul George in this recent stretch, playing to a 2-3 record in that span including an important road victory in Portland last night. It's thanks to their ability to score off the bench. LA ranks fifth in the NBA in bench scoring. Playing a Jazz squad that's really struggling, and had to reinvent themselves without Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert by playing the 15th-fastest pace in the league.
LA excels defensively (2nd in defensive rating) and slows things down to a snail's pace (20th in pace). The combination of their defensive prowess and Utah's lack of consistency on a five-game losing skid gives the Clippers an edge.
Final Score Prediction: Jazz: 108 | Clippers: 114
Jazz vs. Clippers Best Bet
Even though the Clippers are in much better form, FanDuel Sportsbook is giving Utah a big edge. That's a combination of George and Leonard's absences, and LA's brutal road trip from Portland to Utah on back-to-back nights.
Considering my prediction for the Clippers to grab a victory, targeting the moneyline is a good option here. With +215 odds offering a favorable payout, let's take the Clippers to win outright.
Bet: Clippers ML (+215)
