The Boston Celtics and Utah Jazz meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Delta Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Boston Celtics vs Utah Jazz prediction.

Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics have been in red-hot form as they’ve won 13 of their last 15 games overall and they will be gunning for a third straight win after blowing past the Trail Blazers in a 121-99 road win last night. Jaylen Brown led the team with 27 points, six rebounds and five assists, Jayson Tatum added 26 points with eight assists while Sam Hauser chipped in with 22 points on eight of 12 shooting off the bench. As a team, the Celtics shot 49 percent from the field and 15 of 40 from the 3-point line as they dominated right from the start, pouring in 66 points in the first half to jump out to double digits right away, before they finished with a flurry in the fourth quarter to make it a blowout in the end. The Celtics will take on the Suns and Wizards after this one.

Utah Jazz

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been in terrible shape as they’ve lost 10 of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting run over by the Nuggets in a 142-121 road loss on Saturday. Keyonte George led the team with 29 points and six assists, Jordan Clarkson added 22 points off the bench while John Collins chipped in with 19 points on seven of 10 shooting. As a team, the Jazz shot 50 percent from the field and eight of 26 from the 3-point line as they struggled to contain the Nuggets from the start and were always fighting a losing contest after getting outscored by 78-44 going into halftime. The Jazz will play against the Hawks and Timberwolves after this game.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The Jazz have won nine of their last 10 games as home underdogs against Eastern Conference opponents following a loss.
  • The Jazz have covered the spread in each of their last nine Tuesday games as home underdogs.
  • Each of the Jazz’s last five home games against the Celtics following a road loss have gone OVER the total points line.

Boston Celtics Team Facts

  • The Celtics have won 14 of their last 15 night games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Celtics have covered the spread in seven of their last eight games following a win.
  • Each of the Celtics’ last four games as favorites following a road win have gone UNDER the total points line.

Boston Celtics vs Utah Jazz prediction

The Celtics are still a little shorthanded with Kristaps Porzingis and Jrue Holiday both ruled out again, while the Jazz are again without Lauri Markkanen due to a quadriceps injury. The Celtics are coming into this one a little banged up and they are playing their second game of a back to back set, but they’ve been one of the hottest teams in the league while the Jazz have been ice-cold lately. This seems like a dangerous spot for the Celtics, but I don’t think the Jazz are good enough to take advantage, so I’m sticking with the men in green to get the win and cover on the road.
