The Line: Brooklyn Nets +1 -- Over/Under:
The Utah Jazz and Brooklyn Nets meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Barclays Center.
The Utah Jazz look for another victory to build on their nine-game winning streak. The Utah Jazz are averaging 109.4 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 105.7 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24.2 points and 4.4 assists while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 21 points and 4.3 rebounds. Jordan Clarkson is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 14.4 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 39 percent from beyond the arc and 76.8 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.5 rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz have won five straight road games.
The Brooklyn Nets need a win after losing eight of their last 11 games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 109.7 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 111 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Kyrie Irving is averaging 27.9 points and 6.8 assists while Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 22.1 points and 3.2 rebounds. Caris LeVert is the third double-digit scorer and Joe Harris is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 73.8 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.9 rebounds per game. The Brooklyn Nets have split their last six home games.
The Jazz are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games as a favorite, 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 1 days rest and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Nets are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as a home underdog, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 Tuesday games. The under is 9-3 in Nets last 12 Tuesday games. The Jazz are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Brooklyn and 16-6 ATS in the last 22 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets are as healthy as they've been in quite some time, but I'm not convinced that they're a good basketball team with or without Kyrie. The Utah Jazz are the hottest team in the league with nine straight wins, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 13.4 points while shooting 50.9 percent from the field. The Jazz have also won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Nets, which includes a five-point win back in November. The Jazz are playing too well to bet against right now, especially in a near pick em.
