Utah Jazz Schedule
The schedule for the new season has just been released – so now you can really get into planning your picks and making your predictions.
Best Utah Jazz Predictions
The Northwest Division was one of the toughest last year and the Jazz managed to make the playoffs with an impressive home record.
If that can be repeated this season then there is no reason why this team cannot push on once again, perhaps even to the West Conference Semifinals.
There will be more talent in the Pacific this year, however, so possibly fewer teams from Utah’s division will make it to the postseason.
A slightly smaller team this time around, the Jazz will still have some very skillful players looking to post-high totals.
Big scores could be expected thanks to three-point players such as Bojan Bogdanovic and Joe Ingles. Make a note of that for your overunder bets.
Other things to look out for when it comes to Utah Jazz betting will be the form of Rudy Gobert.
The Jazz will have an outstanding offense so it could be one of the picks for bets beating the spread.
With Derrick Favors and Jae Crowder no longer around the defense, it may be a little light but predictions in the media are looking good for the Jazz.
History of the Utah Jazz
This franchise started as an expansion team based in New Orleans in 1974 but moved to Utah in 1979.
It took a few years for the team to take off but from the mid-1980s the Jazz was ever-present in the NBA playoffs.
From the late 80s to 2003 the main reason for Utah’s success was the interplay between Karl Malone and John Stockton.
One of the greatest ever point guard-power forward partnerships in NBA history, these two led the Jazz to its only league finals in 2002 and 2003.
Both times the Jazz was unlucky to come up against Michael Jordan and the Bulls and came away defeated.
Center Rudy Gobert has been the main man in recent years – although he is now ably assisted by Donovan Mitchell and a bunch of new recruits.
They are now are promising to make in an exciting time for the Jazz in the next few years.
