The Utah Jazz invade the Scotiabank Arena to take on the Toronto Raptors on Friday night.

The Utah Jazz have been in stellar form as they’ve reeled off eight wins in their past nine games and they will be looking for a third straight victory after beating the Nuggets in a 115-109 road win on Wednesday. Bojan Bogdanovic led the team with 36 points, 13 rebounds and four assists, Rudy Gay added 18 points off the bench while Donovan Mitchell chipped in with 17 points. As a team, the Jazz shot 46 percent from the field and 14 of 41 from the 3-point line as they went back and forth with the Nuggets in a tight contest, until the third quarter where they opened with a 20-9 run to pull away and finish on top despite playing without their defensive leader in Rudy Gobert.

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have been a team on the rise as they will be looking to build on their current four-game win streak after outlasting the shorthanded Bucks in a 117-111 road win on Wednesday. Pascal Siakam led the team with 33 points on 13 of 23 shooting, OG Anunoby and Gary Trent Jr each scored 22 points while Fred VanVleet chipped in with 19 points and five assists. As a team, the Raptors shot 47 percent from the field and 16 of 36 from the 3-point line as they struggled to contain the Bucks in the first half and fell behind by as many as 14 points, before taking control in the third quarter where they restricted the Bucks to just 11 points.

Looking at the betting trends, the Jazz are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games, 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a winning record and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Raptors are 7-0 ATS in their last seven home games, 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record and 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall.

Head to head, the Jazz are 1-7 ATS in the last eight meetings in Toronto and the Jazz are 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings overall.

The Jazz will be shorthanded once again as Rudy Gobert, Donovan MitchellJoe Ingles and Hassan Whiteside are all listed as out, while Rudy Gay, Royce O’Neale and Jordan Clarkson are all listed as questionable. Contrastingly, the Raptors are just about at full strength except for Yuta Watanabe who is listed as out, so the advantage goes to the Raptors. The Jazz are only 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings overall and I think that trend continues here as the Raptors should be way too good for whatever makeshift lineup the Jazz will have to put out.
