The Boston Celtics will be on the road to take on the Utah Jazz on Friday, December 3rd. The tip-off is set for 9:00 ET from Vivint Arena.
The Jazz comes into this game having two days off.
Utah opened up as a 9 point favorite and that number is now down to 7.5. The total has gone from 214.5 to 210.
The Celtics have certainly not lived up to their expectations so far this year, but I do feel like they are playing a little better. With that said, I have been pretty disappointed in the way they have performed thus far.
They come into this game having won 3 of their last 5 games. All in all, consistency has been an issue with this squad in 2021.
I kind of thought that them getting a new head coach would put away some of the old bad habits, such as lack of effort and consistently blowing big leads. So far, those items have still been an issue for Boston.
When you watch this team, you still often wonder about their chemistry. There is no doubt that this team has talent, but it is a matter of them putting it all together. They still have yet to show me that.
Boston beat the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday by a score of 88-87. Even though it was not a high-scoring affair, it was a good win for them over a solid Sixers team. It will only get harder for them when they hit the road for this West Coast trip.
In the win over Philly, Jayson Tatum was the leading scorer with 26 points and 16 rebounds. Al Horford also had 10 points and 8 rebounds.
Wow, this Jazz team has really looked good so far this year. This is a squad that I can see making it very far when all is said and done.
Utah has a record of 14-7, which is 3rd best in the Western Conference. They are currently behind the Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors. To me, they are not pretenders. I definitely feel they are one of the better teams in the whole NBA.
They have been led all year long by Donovan Mitchell, who is a helluva player. The Jazz has also gotten contributions from some of their role players. Overall, it seems like the players on the court really mesh well together.
Utah last played on Monday, where they easily took care of the Portland Trail Blazers by a score of 129-107. They did just what they had to do against a team they are better than.
Donovan Mitchell had 30 points and 5 assists in the win over Portland. Rudy Gobert chipped in 21 points and he snagged 16 rebounds. They seem to get a good balance of scoring from a variety of different players.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Celtics are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games.
- The Celtics are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.
- The Jazz are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.
- The Jazz are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games played on a Friday.
Boston Celtics vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
When these teams are rolling, this is always a matchup that makes for a good game. Also, it is always a treat when you get to watch Jayson Tatum trade buckets with Donovan Mitchell.
Of course, this is going to be a tough game for the Celtics to win. Not only are they facing a great team, but they are also going to play in a very hostile environment.
With that said, I feel that Boston can definitely compete in this one.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Celtics ATS
It would definitely surprise me if the C’s won this thing, but I definitely feel they can keep it within this number. The Celtics do not often get beat by wide margins and they tend to play the very good teams tough. I can see this being a close contest.
For me, the 7.5 is a little too high to lay with Utah. I feel they will win, but I like Boston to cover.
