The Utah Jazz and LA Clippers meet Friday in NBA action at the Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Jazz vs Clippers prediction.

Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz have been in terrible shape as they’ve lost 19 of their last 22 games overall, but they will be feeling much better after taking down the Rockets in a 124-121 win last night. Luka Samanic led the team with 22 points, Keyonte George added 20 points with five assists while Talen Horton-Tucker chipped in with 16 points and five assists off the bench. As a team, the Jazz shot 50 percent from the field and 14 of 39 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to erase an early 12-point deficit, before they went on a crucial 6-0 run late in the fourth quarter to escape with the unlikely win at home.

Los Angeles Clippers

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have been in great form as they’ve won seven of their last nine games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back after getting scorched by the Suns in a 124-108 loss on Wednesday. Bones Hyland led the team with 37 points and nine assists, Brandon Boston Jr added 23 points off the bench while Mason Plumlee chipped in with 12 points, 12 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Clippers shot 46 percent from the field and 12 of 36 from the 3-point line as they hung tough with the Suns in a close contest, until the fourth quarter where the Clippers scored just 15 points to get run off the floor in the end.

Los Angeles Clippers Team Facts

  • The Clippers have won each of their last 14 games when playing with a rest advantage.
  • The Clippers have covered the spread in seven of their last eight games against the Jazz at Arena.
  • Each of the Clippers’ last nine games against opponents who are on the second leg of a back-to-back have gone OVER the total points line.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The Jazz have lost each of their last 24 road games against Western Conference opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Jazz have failed to cover the spread in seven of their last eight road games following a home win.
  • Seven of the Jazz’s last eight games against Pacific Division opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Jazz vs Clippers prediction

The Jazz are still missing some players with Lauri Markkanen, Jordan Clarkson and John Collins all out, while the Clippers have ruled out Kawhi Leonard and James Harden is listed as questionable. The Jazz looked pretty good in last night’s surprising win over the Rockets, but they were ice-cold before that win. I am definitely more comfortable backing the Clippers, who were rolling before they got stopped by the Suns on Wednesday. The Jazz are playing their second game of a back to back set, so I am confident the Clippers can run away with this one at home.
