Jazz vs. Bulls Prediction
The Jazz had their five-game winning streak snapped in Atlanta on Thursday but will look to rebound Saturday night in Chicago when they visit the Bulls at 8:00 p.m. ET. Is the over a good play for bettors or will both offenses be suppressed tonight at the United Center?

Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin
Donovan Mitchell scored 34 points during a 117-114 loss to the Hawks on Thursday, adding four rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes. It was a smash spot for Donny Mitch and he comes through. The bad news is the Jazz had their five-game winning streak snapped, but they have a cupcake schedule for the next week: at Chicago, vs. Phoenix, vs. Lakers, vs. Wizards. Mitchell continues to tear it up since the break, averaging 28.0 points, 4.4 boards, 4.6 dimes, 0.9 steals and 3.3 treys on a 46/43/80 shooting line over his previous 14. He costs more in DFS these days and he should be worth it with some easy defenses on the horizon.
Chicago Bulls Fantasy Spin
Otto Porter (right rotator cuff strain) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. Utah. Porter has missed each of the Bulls past two contests. Encouragingly, he told reporters on Thursday that he doesn't anticipate getting shut down for Chicago's final nine games of the season. We should have another update on Otto after Saturday's shootaround. Shaq Harrison started for Chicago on Wednesday and tallied 18 points, six rebounds, four steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.
