Wizards vs. Jazz Prediction
Will John Wall and the Wizards snap their three-game skid when they visit the Jazz tonight at 9:00PM ET?
Washington will be an underdog tonight when it visits Utah. According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Wizards are +4.5 after the Jazz opened as 3.5-point favorites. As for the total, the number hasn’t moved after it opened at 198.
The Jazz can’t shake out of their offensive funk. They’ve averaged just 91.3 points and have shot 41.3 percent over their current 1-7 stretch. Those figures are both NBA lows and following a 34.9 percent performance at home on Tuesday in a 91-84 loss to the Hawks, the Jazz weren’t able to keep pace in a 115-94 road defeat at Golden State on Wednesday.
Even though he joined the team in Utah, Bradley Beal might not suit up for the Wizards tonight. No matter: 4.5 points is too many to lay on a Jazz team that is in midst of a 1-9 stretch. Washington is 6-1 against the spread in its last seven games playing on two days of rest while Utah is winless at 0-9 against the number in its last nine games playing on one day of rest.
