The (18-20) SU, (18-19-1) ATS Utah Jazz were beaten by Toronto 122-116 as 1′ point road FAVORITES ATS on New Year’s Day. Jae Crowder led all scorers with 30 points as Utah gave up 44 third-quarter points in a pathetic defensive effort.

They’re playing the second of a four-game road trip which end in Milwaukee on the 9th.

  • Utah is 4-0-1 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last five after an SU defeat.
  • The Under is 3-1 Utah last four on the road.
  • UNDER bettors have made profits in Utah last four on the road vs. Teams with an SU losing record.
  • The Jazz is 5-0-1 ATS the last six between the teams.

The (8-30) SU, (18-10) ATS Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to end a seven-game SU losing streak after a 117-92 defeat at the hands of Miami as 5′ point home UNDERDOGS ATS.

Forward Kevin Love is getting set for basketball-related activities after undergoing foot surgery in November, but there’s no timetable for his return on the court. Cleveland owns the worst record in the NBA as we enter 2019.

  • Cleveland is 0-5 ATS their last five on Friday’s.
  • The Cavaliers are 0-4 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD their last four at home.
  • The OVER is 7-1 Cleveland last eight at home.
  • UNDER bettors have cashed in the last five times, the teams have played.

Friday’s game is 7:30 PM EST at Quickens Loan Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. The Local Network will be broadcasting. The Betting Line has Cleveland as 9 point home UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 208′ points for Friday’s contest.


Expectations around the NBA for the Utah Jazz were prematurely high after a tremendous 2018 postseason. However, the Jazz finds themselves in an unpopular position as far as the standings are concerned.

Head Coach Quinn Snyder insists his guys aren’t panicking but also indicated tonight’s game is critical for team confidence. It’s been seven years since Utah has been victorious in Cleveland, but that’s when they were competing against the likes of LeBron James or Kyrie Irving. Sharp Shooter Kyle Korver returns to Cleveland for the first time since getting traded for Alec Burks while the Cavaliers Rodney Hood also looks forward to seeing his old teammates.

Guard Donovan Mitchell (20.8) points per game lead the leagues 21st ranked offense that scores (107.7) ppg. Point Guard Ricky Rubio is questionable tonight with a minor foot injury which could affect ball distribution. Utah shoots (46.3%) from the field which ranks 13th league-wide.

What bothers the coaching staff is their effort on defense in Toronto, they allow opponents (106.1) points per contest and 144 is unacceptable. They also understand it was New Years and Toronto is city players like to frequent although the weather is frigid.

Utah will face two former players who’ll be looking to take their abilities to new heights tonight; they must stick to the game plan by getting the ball to Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors in the post.

After the departure of LeBron James the Cleveland Cavaliers face many dilemmas in the first month of 2019. Owner Dan Gilbert fired Tyronn Lue earlier in the season, replacing him with Larry Drew on an interim basis.

Nothing is working, and now they’re in the hunt for Duke star Zion Williamson who’ll enter the 2019 NBA draft and it in some circles being compared to the King.

Trade rumors are swirling surrounding Kevin Love who’s talent could land him in the Western Conference when he becomes healthy. For now, the coaching staff remembers the production of Donovan Mitchell in two appearances last year averaging (27.5) ppg while shooting (63.6%) and that was against a team that played Golden State in the NBA Finals.

The Cavaliers allows opponents a league-worst (48.7%) from the field which should have Mitchell licking his chops. Jordan Clarkson (16.9) ppg leads the leagues 28th ranked scoring offense that puts up (102.0) points per contest while rookie Colin Sexton (14.7) ppg is playing up to expectations. The former Alabama Crimson Tide point guard looks forward to facing Rubio if he’s available.

Cleveland doesn’t have a star in the lineup since Love is on the shelf and their dependency of James no longer an option they’ll lose but cover the POINT SPREAD tonight.

San Antonio Spurs @ Utah Jazz (Western Conference) NBA Betting preview for Tuesday, December 4, 2018.

The (11-12) SU/ATS San Antonio Spurs broke a two-game losing streak on December 2nd with a 131-118 win over Portland as 1 point home UNDERDOGS ATS. DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 36 points making 13 of 27 shots from the field.

After suffering consecutive double-figure losses, Sunday’s victory over Portland showed fans in San Antonio their team has what it takes to compete in the West.

  • San Antonio is 2-4 ATS their last six on the road.
  • The OVER is 5-0-1 San Antonio last six when giving up 100 points or more in the game before.
  • OVER bettors have cashed in 7 of the last eight meetings between the teams.
  • The Spurs are 0-6 AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD the last six after scoring more than 125 point their previous contest.

The (11-13) SU/ATS Utah Jazz ended a three-game trip with a 102-100 SU loss to Miami as 4-point road FAVORITES ATS. Utah is last in the competitive Northwest division, five and a half games behind first-place Denver.

Utah will host Houston on December 6th before traveling to the Alamo City to face the Spurs again on the 9th of this month.

  • The UNDER is 10-4 the last fourteen between the teams in Salt Lake City.
  • Over bettors have made profits Utah last six at home.
  • Utah has lost their previous two games ATS at home.
  • The Jazz is 1-8 ATS their last nine vs. Teams with a losing SU road record.

Tuesday’s game is at 9:00 PM EST at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. The NBA Television Network will be broadcasting.

The Betting Line has Utah as 8 point home FAVORITES ATS. The TOTAL is 216′ points for Tuesday’s contest.

Gregg Popovich and RC Buford are known to some around the NBA as the most efficient Head Coach and General Manager duo in the NBA, that’s why the Spurs will be relevant in the 2019 playoffs.

San Antonio is tied with Houston for fourth place in the Southwest division with a team that’s still trying to find an identity.

The Spurs one time smothering defense is a work in progress giving up (112.3) points per contest, 22nd in the league. Popovich will also continue to address the (48.1) shooting percentage they allow opponents which ranks 28th league-wide. Center Pau Gasol has been out since late November with a foot injury, and they don’t know when he’ll be back in the lineup. DeRozan (24.3) ppg is the top scorer on an offense that puts up an average of (109.4), 17 in the league. The (38.9%) shooting from beyond the three-point line is the best in the Association.

Power Forward LaMarcus Aldridge grabs a team-best (10.5) rebounds per game on a unit that average (44.0) per game, 18th in the league. With the departure of longtime Tony Parker, San Antonio is looking for Patty Mills or Derrick White to take the lead. DeRozan is a shooting guard but leads the team in assists, Buford could make a trade for an upgrade at the position.

San Antonio must play with consistency at both ends of the floor while Aldridge and Rudy Gay must get physical with Utah in the post.

Fans who root for the lone major sports franchise in the Beehive State are a bit shell-shocked through the first quarter of 2018. After taking down Oklahoma City in the playoff, last season expectations for this year were through the roof.

Many NBA Experts believe Utah would challenge Golden State for supremacy. However, it’s been tough going for the Jazz who seem to be average at best so far this season. In an attempt to shake things up they acquired Kyle Korver from Cleveland and are 2-1 since his arrival; Korver played for the Jazz from 2007-10.

Shooting guard Donovan Mitchell (21.4) points per contest lead a Utah offense that ranks 26th in the NBA with (105.7) ppg with a (45.8) shooting percentage from the field. The (32.6%) from three-point territory is also 26th.

What’s baffling is their lack of presence in the post with Rudy Gobert (13.0) rebounds per game and Derrick Favors (7.1) they should be better than their 23rd ranking grabbing boards.

Point Guard Ricky Rubio (6.4) assists per game are growing into a prominent role with the team but can be a defensive liability at times.

Forward Jae Crowder brings a sense of toughness to the roster to a defense that allows (108.0) ppg, sixth in the league. The Jazz must contest the Spurs from the 3-point line, Utah allows (36.5%) from beyond the arc with (47.4%) from the field.

Head Coach Quin Snyder believes Korver brings another shooter to the lineup which they’ll need tonight.
