Any Utah Jazz fan anticipating this game early in the season might have planned on trying to contain a three-headed monster of Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving. Any NBA fan should know that the surest prediction in this league is for the unpredictable to happen. Even those who follow a team are solid like the Jazz (45-26)
James Harden is now playing in the City of Brotherly Love. Kyrie Irving is unavailable for Nets (37-34) home games (like the one tonight). Kevin Durant still exists, but with Ben Simmons still sidelined, his workload may be too much for any man to bear.
Utah Jazz vs Brooklyn Nets odds tonight
According to WynnBet, the Jazz are 1-point favorites to win tonight, and -120-point favorites on the money line. The Nets are +100 point underdogs.
The over/under is currently set at 232.0 points.
Utah Jazz starting lineup
Mike Conley is listed day to day for this game. If he’s not available, look for Snyder to start with Donovan Mitchell, Jordan Clarkson, Bojan Bogdanovic, Royce O’Neale and Rudy Gobert.
Utah Jazz Injury Report
We mentioned that Conley is listed overnight. Bojan Bogdanovic, meanwhile, is expected to return tonight. No one else is currently listed on the team’s injury report.
Utah Jazz vs Brooklyn Nets Prediction
The Nets have been hot lately, winning four of their last five contests. Of course, two of those wins have come on the road, where the Nets oddly have an advantage due to Irving’s availability.
The Utah Jazz are fully vaccinated, so they’ll be able to field any player who isn’t injured. Conley’s availability could be a deciding factor in this contest, but knowing Irving and Simmons won’t be playing, we like the Jazz odds anyway.
Prediction: Jazz 121, nets 114
