The Washington Wizards invade the Delta Center to do battle with the Utah Jazz on Monday night. Here’s a Wizards vs Jazz Prediction.

Washington Wizards

The Washington Wizards have been ice-cold lately as they are now hoping to put an end to a 14-game losing streak after getting blown out by the Clippers in a 140-115 road loss on Friday. Kyle Kuzma led the team with 32 points on 13 of 19 shooting, Jordan Poole added 16 points with four assists off the bench while Deni Avdija chipped in with 14 points and five assists. As a team, the Wizards shot 46 percent from the field and 12 of 34 from the 3-point line. The Wizards rank dead last in the league in defense, and it was on full display in the second quarter where they allowed the Clippers to explode for 46 points.

Utah Jazz

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been doing it tough lately as they’ve lost eight of their last nine games overall. The Wizards will be hoping to put an end to a three-game skid after falling short to the Heat in a 126-120 road loss on Saturday. Keyonte George led the team with 31 points on 12 of 23 shooting, Lauri Markkanen added 25 points with six assists, while John Collins and Collin Sexton each scored 18 points. As a team, the Jazz shot 48 percent from the field and 14 of 35 from the 3-point line. The Jazz showed plenty of fight to hang with the Heat in a tight contest, until midway through the fourth quarter, where the Heat went on a pivotal 11-4 run to start to pull away. The Jazz will meet the Bulls after this one.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The Jazz have won each of their last 13 home games against the Wizards following a road loss.
  • The Jazz have failed to cover the spread in six of their last seven games as home favorites when playing with a rest disadvantage.
  • Each of the Jazz’s last six Monday games at Delta Center have gone UNDER the total points line.

Washington Wizards Team Facts

  • The Wizards have lost each of their last 14 games.
  • The Wizards have covered the spread in seven of their last eight road games against teams that held a losing record.
  • Each of the Wizards’ last five road games have gone OVER the total points line.

Wizards vs Jazz Prediction

The Wizards have been in terrible form, they just leaked 140 points in an ugly loss to the Clippers, and they haven’t shown any signs of improvement on the defensive end where they rank dead last in the league. The Jazz have been in a slump of their own as they’ve lost eight of their last nine games, but they were right there with the Heat in a close contest on Saturday until late in the game where the Heat slipped away. You really couldn’t back either team with any confidence these days, so this is a game I’d stay away from, but if I had to choose, I’d lean towards the Jazz to take care of business at home.
