The Trail Blazers will be in Utah to take on the Jazz. The tipoff is set for 9:00 ET from the Vivint Arena.
Both of these teams did not play a game on Sunday. They will get back to action on Monday.
The Jazz started off as a 7 point favorite and that number is up to 7.5. The total has pretty much stayed at 223 points.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers have not played up to their level yet. I do feel that as the year goes on, they can get better, but I am not sure how far they will get.
Portland has won 4 of their last 6 games, but they have lost their last two games. They need to get back on track.
Damian Lillard has not played up to his ability this year and frankly, it has been costing his team at times. Of course, other guys have to step up as well, but a lot of that responsibility falls on when you as the best player.
This is a team that I was pretty high on before the year started. Simply put, they have not lived up to expectations so far this season.
This team last played on Friday, where they lost to the Golden State Warriors by a score of 118-103. I cannot say the loss surprises me, but it would have been nice to see them compete a little bit more.
In the loss to Golden State, Damian Lillard scored 16 points on the night. That right there is a perfect example of how he simply needs to play better for his team. Scoring that amount of points is not going to cut it if you are supposed to be one of the better guards in the league.
The Jazz are once again having an impressive start to the season. This is a team that I do feel could go far.
Utah currently has a record of 13-7, which puts them in 3rd place in the Western Conference. The Warriors and Suns are both ahead of them.
This team has been led by their best player, Donovan Mitchell all year long. Not only is he a great player, but he is also a true leader for this ball club.
Utah beat the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday by a score of 127-105. They did just what they had to do against a team that is very bad at the moment.
A bunch of different guys stepped up in the win on Saturday. Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conely, and Jordan Clarkson all had at least 20 points in the victory. It is good to see a mix of people step up in these games for them.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Trail Blazers are 5-10 ATS in their last 15 games.

- The Jazz are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.
- The Jazz are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games when playing at home against Portland.
Portland Trail Blazers vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
Yes, the Blazers have played better as of late despite losing their last few games, but I still do not feel they are on the level of the Jazz.
If you are the Jazz, this is a team you need to beat. You really should not lose to a Blazers team that you are better than.
Even though I am not very high on Portland at the moment, I do feel they can make things closer than some might think.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Trail Blazers ATS
I do think that Portland will be able to score some points in this one. As far as their defense, I have a little less confidence in that.
With all of that said, 7.5 is just too high for me to lay with the Jazz here. Portland may not win this thing, but I do like them to keep it within this number.
