Utah Jazz vs Dallas Mavericks (Dallas Win +5.5)

The Utah Jazz welcomes the Mavericks team in Salt Lake City, which is in a mild crisis, and any good result would certainly come in handy for this team, which is seriously affected by injuries or absences due to covid.

However, almost all players will be available for this match. Richardson, Finney-Smith and Dwight Powell are questionable at the moment but one should expect some of them to play.

Jazz, on the other hand, looks serious this season. Mitchell and company are playing great, have a winning streak and are currently 13-4.

Last night they played and reversed the game against the Knicks for another win.

However, tonight they will miss Donovan Mitchell, so in the beginning that is a lot of attacking productivity that will need to be replaced.

That fact and the fact that it is a B2B game are primary for this pick, but still a bit more cautious considering that Dallas is not playing very well this season.
