Suddenly, life becomes beautiful again for Utah Jazz fans. They have won 3 straight, including a 111-85 thrashing of the impressive Golden State Warriors. It stands to reason that the Jazzmen should be able to handle the Orlando Magic in tonight’s contest.
After all, the Jazz (34-21) may have had an uneven season, but they remain one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association. the Magic (13-43)meanwhile, are… not.
How’s that for analysis?
The Magic are in the middle of a rebuild. There are some talented players on this list, but they’re too inexperienced to stand much of a chance against the Utah Jazz. Anything can happen in the National Basketball Association, but as long as the Jazz are locked in, they should come away with a win tonight.
Utah Jazz vs Orlando Magic odds tonight
Apparently WynnBet agrees with this assessment.
According to WynnBet, the Jazz are the 13-point favorites to win this game and the -1000-point favorites on the money line. The Magic are +650 underdogs.
The over/under is currently set at 222.5 points.
Utah Jazz starting lineup
Rudy Gobert plans to be the only missing starter for Quin Snyder tonight. Jazz fans should expect a lineup from Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell, Bojan Bogdanovic, Royce O’Neale and Udoka Azubuike (Hassan Whiteside likely receiving the lion’s share of minutes at 5).
Utah Jazz Injury Report
Apart from Gobert, the Jazz will be deprived of its other Rudy G tonight. Rudy Gay rests with a knee injury.
Utah Jazz vs Orlando Magic Prediction
We won’t waste many words here. We predict a victory for the Utah Jazz. We also don’t think there’s a ton of bias in this prediction.
We are talking about one of the 5 or 6 best teams in the NBA against one of the 2 or 3 worst. Again, anything can happen in the NBA, but this game doesn’t require a deep dissection of games and strategies.
This is the Jazz game to lose. It will be a huge disappointment if they do.
Prediction: Jazz 121, Magic 106
