In one of the last two games to tip-off on Wednesday night, the Utah Jazz will look to keep their winning ways going when they play the Los Angeles Clippers at 10 p.m. ET. These two teams played each other on Jan. 2, where the Jazz won 106-100 over the Clippers.
The Jazz are coming into this game on a eight-game winning streak after defeating the Philadelphia 76ers 134-123 on Monday night. The Clippers defeated the Heat 125-118 on Monday night, extending their winning streak to four games. Can the Clippers take down the best team in the west without Paul George or Kawhi Leonard? We’ll go over some ideal picks on DraftKings Sportsbook centered around the game here.
Update: Leonard has been ruled out tonight vs. the Jazz.
Pick ATS: Jazz -4
The line for Wednesday’s night contest is at four points, with the Jazz unsurprisingly favored on the road. There’s not much to say about this ATS pick as Utah has been one of the best bets this season in the NBA. The Jazz are a perfect 7-0 against the spread in their last seven games and 21-6-1 ATS this season.
The last time the Jazz did not cover was on Jan. 31 against the Denver Nuggets (-3), where they lost 128-117. As for the Clippers, they are only 7-7 against the spread at the Staples Center. But when they are the underdog ATS, the Clippers have been a good play with a record of 5-1.
The Jazz are coming into this game relatively healthy, while George has been ruled out and Leonard is questionable for the Clips. If Leonard plays that will help immensely on both ends of the floor. But without him, I still like the Jazz to continue to play good basketball and get the cover.
