The Utah Jazz shocked everyone this season. After losing Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert earlier in the season, many thought this would be a rebuilding year for Utah. That was far from the case as they currently sit in first place in the Western Conference.
The Toronto Raptors are a young team with a great coach. Sure, they may not be the dominant championship team they were when Kawhi Leonard was in town, but they still have plenty of talent and the future is very bright. While Indiana is the favorite in their matchup, don’t be surprised to see this Raptors team come out victorious.
The Miami Heat are picking up where they left off last season. They feel like they are a championship contender and for good reason. Bam Adebayo is having a career season and Jimmy Butler continues to lead this team to success.
Utah Jazz vs Washington Wizards: NBA Betting Odds and Picks
The Jazz are led by one of the most intriguing coaches in the league in Will Hardy. Somehow, he got this young core to unlock their full potential.
The Jazz became the first team in the NBA to reach the 10-win mark the other night. While Lauri Markkanen and Collin Sexton aren’t Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, their impact in the right environment is finally being realized on this team.
As for the Wizards, they are coming off an impressive win over the Dallas Mavericks. Despite a couple of key players being out, Kyle Kuzma’s 36-point outing led the team to a 113-105 win. It should be noted that one of the players Washington was sidelined was All-Star Bradley Beal.
The Wizards can make this game interesting, but the Jazz can come away with a win. They are riding a lot of speed these days and look like a more complete team.
Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers: NBA Betting Odds and Picks
The Raptors are in the midst of three games in four days. They laid eggs on the Oklahoma City Thunder and scored 132 points in the loss. A surprise from one of the league’s best defenses.
The Raptors are tired but will come into this matchup with Indiana with a chip on their shoulder. They want to make sure the loss to the Thunder was just a fluke. With Scott Brooks coaching a young core led by Scotty Barnes and Pascal Siakam, the team is in good hands. Fred VanVleet is still questionable whether he will play or not, which will play a big role in the outcome of this game.
It should be noted that Indiana has no pressure this year. They may be 5-6, but they carry two errant young players in Tyrese Haliburton and Benedict Maturin. Not to mention, they gave the Denver Nuggets a scare on Wednesday night and beat the likes of the Miami Heat and New Orleans Pelicans. While we are picking the Raptors to win this game, there is a reason why the Pacers are favored in this matchup tonight.
Charlotte Hornets vs Miami Heat: NBA betting odds and picks
The Hornets started the season in disappointing fashion. After a harrowing season in which several key players were in trouble, the distractions seemed to translate to subpar performances on the court.
Charlotte is currently 3-10. A terrible winning record for a team that had the desire to play, at least to start the campaign. They are currently on a seven game losing streak. Unfortunately, it won’t be easy for the Hornets as they take on a Heat team led by Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler for the second time in three nights.
Miami has had a relatively slow start to the year as they are 5-7. However, the season is still young and this Heat team could change it at any time. They proved that in their overtime win over Charlotte. Miami may win ugly, but at the end of the night, a win is a win.
The hot Hornets are too good to beat right now. With that in mind, the Heat should get another win over Charlotte.
