Utah Jazz vs. Phoenix Suns, 3/13/19 Predictions & Odds

The Suns are coming off the best upset of the NBA season, upending the Warriors 115-111 in Oakland as a 17-point underdog Sunday night. Is Phoenix a good bet to cover as a sizable home underdog tonight against the Utah Jazz as well? Tip-off is set for 10:00 p.m. ET.

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook BetNow.eu, the Suns are 8-point favorites to beat the Jazz. The total, meanwhile, sits at 221.5 points and as of this writing, 68% of the public betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Jazz to cover the point spread.

Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin

Ricky Rubio (left hip tightness) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns. He's expected back after a two-game absence and was able to go through a limited practice over the weekend. Rubio's first three games in March were underwhelming, but he should be picked back up if he was dropped. If you were looking at or using Royce O'Neale as a streamer, you should probably look for a better option on the wire.

Phoenix Suns Fantasy Spin

T.J. Warren (ankle) will remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game against the Jazz. Head coach Igor Kokoskov said he hasn't discussed shutting down Warren, but with just 13 games left on the schedule after Wednesday's game and Warren still not practicing, things aren't looking great here. Kelly Oubre Jr., Mikal Bridges and Josh Jackson will continue to pick up the slack in his absence, with Dragan Bender starting at the four-spot.

NBA Betting Trends

Utah

The Jazz are 16-4-1 against the spread in their last 21 games following a loss.

Phoenix

The Suns are 8-3 against the number in their last 11 games coming off a win.

Prediction

While the Suns are coming off a massive upset, the Jazz fell to the Thunder as a 3.5-point home favorite on Monday night as they failed to crack 90 points offensively. The suns are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games overall and 5-1 against the number in their last six home games, while the Jazz failed to cover in four of their previous five games. While I don’t see the 16-52 Suns pulling off back-to-back big upsets, I do like this improved squad to keep the game relatively close.
