The Utah Jazz play host to the Philadelphia 76ers at the Delta Center on Thursday night. Here’s a Jazz vs 76ers Prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers have been in a funk lately as they are now hoping to put an end to a four-game slide after getting beaten by the Warriors in a 119-107 road loss on Tuesday. Tobias Harris led the team in scoring with 26 points and 10 rebounds, Furkan Korkmaz added 19 points off the bench while Kelly Oubre Jr chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the 76ers shot 45 percent from the field and 13 of 30 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Warriors in a tightly contested first half, but they had no answer for the Warriors’ Stephen Curry and allowed 67 points in the second half to suffer their third double-digit loss in their last four games.

Philadelphia 76ers Team Facts

  • The 76ers have lost 17 of their last 18 games at Delta Center following a road loss.
  • The 76ers have failed to cover the spread in each of their last six games against teams that held a losing record.
  • Four of the 76ers’ last five games as underdogs have gone UNDER the total points line.

Utah Jazz

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been in a slump as they’ve lost five of their last seven games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after routing the Knicks in a 118-103 road defeat on Tuesday. Collin Sexton led the team with 22 points and seven assists, Keyonte George added 15 points off the bench while Simone Fontecchio and Lauri Markkanen each scored 14 points. As a team, the Jazz shot 45 percent from the field and 12 of 36 from the 3-point line but they struggled right from the start, scoring just 22 points in the first quarter before they leaked 36 points in the third quarter to trail by as many as 25 points at one stage.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The favorites have won each of the Jazz’s last 10 games.
  • The Jazz have covered the spread in 11 of their last 12 home games against teams that held a winning record.
  • Four of the Jazz’s last five home games against Atlantic Division opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Jazz vs 76ers Prediction

The 76ers have been struggling with injuries lately and they are still going to be without Joel Embiid and De’Anthony Melton, while Tyrese Maxey is listed as questionable. The Jazz are coming in with a full squad once again, but they look to have moved on from their five-game skid as they’ve now reeled off a couple of solid wins. It’s hard to back either team with too much confidence these days as both teams are below their best, but there is a little more to like about the Jazz who looked great in their big win over the red-hot Knicks in their last outing. The 76ers are also banged up for this one, so I will go with the Jazz to take advantage at home.
