Jazz vs. Hawks Prediction & Pick

Both of these teams are fighting to stay in the playoff race with the trade deadline and All-Star break right around the corner. It's worth mentioning the Jazz will continue fighting in what will be their third straight home game on Friday, while the Hawks will be fighting on the road for a third straight contest.

Utah has looked stellar at home, tallying 119.9 points per game (No. 4 in NBA) and logging a +5.1 average scoring margin (No. 10 in NBA). The Jazz have also posted the sixth-best total rebounding rate at home (52.1%), which should help compete against big men like Clint Capela and John Collins.

The Jazz have won six straight games against the Hawks, so back Utah in front of its home fans.

Final Score Prediction: Jazz: 122 | Hawks: 118

Jazz vs. Hawks Best Bet

The Jazz remain an underrated threat in the West as Lauri Markkanen recently earned his first All-Star bid and Malik Bealey ranks fourth in the NBA in three-point makes (165). Utah enters Friday night 6-2 against the spread (ATS) in its last eight games overall and 5-1 ATS in its last six home games.

Atlanta is 0-5 ATS in its last five games against Utah and has not taken down the Jazz since March of 2019. Keep in mind the last six wins for the Jazz in the series have come by an average of 14.2 points. Playing at home makes a true impact in the NBA and the Jazz will prove that with a victory on Friday.
