Utah vs Phoenix: prediction for the NBA match
Two days ago Utah played an away match against Phoenix. But they failed to beat the Suns back then. Jazzmen suffered a 109:115 defeat. But they played that match with a weakened squad. Bojan Bogdanovic, Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles and Rudy Gobert missed that match.
Most of these players will also miss the upcoming match as well. Mitchell and Gobert will surely be unavailable. It is uncertain, whether Bogdanovic and Ingles will play. Hosts also can count on Mike Conley.
Phoenix also have a number of injuries in their squad. Cameron Payne, Javale McGee and Jae Crowder are currently on injuried list. But their absence made no impact on Suns' performance. Monty Williams' men are looking great recently.
Arizona team is currently on a seven-game winning streak. Aside from a victory over Utah, Devin Booker and co also beat Indiana, Dallas and San Antonio. After that success Phoenix retained the 1st spot in the Western Conference.
In each of three most recent matches Jazzmen failed to beat that total
Booker averages 24,8 points per game
In the previous match Phoenix recorded a victory over Utah by six points. But this time we will probably see a different result. Visitors will now play without centers. McGee and Ayton won't be able to play against the Jazz. In this case, Jazzmen will try to get a victory. We think that they will be successful this time.
Our prediction - Handicap (+5,5) points for Utah Jazz
Two days ago teams scored 224 points combined. We think that this match won't be an exception. Phoenix are playing better at home now, so teams should be able to beat that total.
Our second bet is on total over 217,5 points
