76ers vs. Jazz Game Info

  • Date: Saturday, January 14, 2023
  • Time: 9:00 PM ET
  • Venue: Vivint Arena -- Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Coverage: NBA League Pass, NBC Sports Philadelphia and AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain

The NBA's Saturday, Jan. 14 schedule includes an inter-conference showdown between the Philadelphia 76ers (25-16) and Utah Jazz (22-23) at Vivint Arena.

The 76ers enter tonight's action hoping to get back on track after Thursday's 133-114 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder ended Philadelphia's winning ways at two games. Meanwhile, Utah is playing on less than 24 hours of rest after picking up a 112-108 win over the Orlando Magic, led by a 28-point, 12-rebound double-double from Lauri Markkanen.

Can the 76ers leave Utah with another victory in their possession? Or will the Jazz achieve their third win in a row?

76ers vs. Jazz Prediction & Pick

The 76ers have already proven that they can handle this matchup, already having tallied a 105-98 win over the Jazz just over two months ago. Utah's 18 turnovers in that contest played a big role in its downfall. Unfortunately, the Jazz's ball security hasn't improved, made evident by their 15.4 turnovers per game (seventh-most).

There's no doubt that the 76ers will make the Jazz pay for their mistakes again, averaging the fourth-most points off turnovers. Philadelphia is also 9-6 ATS following its first 15 losses of the 2022-23 season, providing even more confidence that the 76ers can make good as 5-point road favorites.

At the end of the day, Philadelphia is an NBA Championship contender while Utah is playing sub-.500 basketball. The 76ers shouldn't break much of a sweat tonight.

Final Score Prediction: 76ers: 119 | Jazz: 113

76ers vs. Jazz Best Bet

When it comes to the best betting option, I recommend taking the under on the 235-point total. After all, the under is 13-5 in the last 18 76ers-Jazz matchups, finishing below 235 points in each of the last 13 clashes.

With the two sides combining for just 203 points in November, brace for fewer points than projected tonight.

Bet: Under 235 Points (-110)
