Knicks vs. Jazz Prediction

Knicks vs. Jazz, 2/7/22 NBA Predictions & betting Odds

A pair of struggling teams will meet in Utah on Monday night at 9:00 p.m. ET when the Jazz host the Knicks as an 8-point home favorite. Is that too many points to lay with a team that is just 3-7 over its last 10 games?

New York Knicks DFS Notes

Julius Randle played 41 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Lakers, finishing with 32 points (11-of-22 FGs, 8-of-10 FTs), 16 rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, and two 3-pointers. Randle, like RJ Barrett, got off to a very good start Saturday night. The Knicks ran at nearly every opportunity during the first half, with Randle scoring 20 points during this period. But the pace shifted during the second half, and as a result, Randle was nowhere near as impactful. Randle finished with his second double-double in as many games, tying his third-highest point total of the season in the process. Randle's still ranked outside of the top-100 in 9-cat for the season, but he's been a 6th-round player over the last week. New York will play four games next week, which is a positive for managers who have Randle rostered. Hopefully, he'll be able to build on Saturday's first-half performance.

Utah Jazz DFS Notes

Donovan Mitchell was back in the lineup on Friday, and he was impressive, scoring 27 points to go with six assists, three rebounds, one steal and six triples in just 22 minutes of Friday’s 125-102 win over the Nets. Mitchell returned from an eight-game absence, where the Jazz went 2-6 without him. Utah also got Hassan Whiteside (lower back) back in the lineup after a one-game absence. Mitchell was extremely efficient on Friday, as he shot 8-of-10 from the floor and 6-of-7 from three, and made all five of his free throws. He didn’t miss a beat, and now that he is back, the Jazz will need him to stay hot especially with Rudy Gobert (calf strain) on the sidelines and Joe Ingles (torn ACL) out for the season.
