Jazz at Heat predictions and choices
Forecast: Jazz 106, Heat 116

Moneyline PASS.

The Jazz are a bad bet as a significant underdog because they have lost seven of their previous eight games.

The spread for BET HEAT is -8 (-106).

The Heat have been performing excellently lately, both at home and away from home. Miami has won three in a row at home and seven in a row away. It has covered five times in a row as a favorite.

The Jazz haven’t experienced a similar fate, losing each game by at least eight and failing to cover in five straight away from home. In all five of those games, they gave up at least 115 points.

In light of the patterns, return HEAT -8 (-106).


The Jazz’s defense has been atrocious; in 8 of their past 9 games, they have given up at least 115 points. 129 or more has been allowed in 4 of their previous 8 games. Although the Heat don’t play quickly, their skilled shooters cause pressure on the Utah defense.

Utah has a strong roster of players that can both create and score, as evidenced by their 32-27-1 O/U record. In four of their past nine games, the Heat have scored at least 115. Anticipate a fast start and OVER 223.5 (-110) from the Jazz.
