Utah Jazz vs Toronto by Robert
Utah Jazz is having bad season this year. I consider this bet as top bet of the night. Jazz will play at home but they are not showing any signs of using home court advantage this season while Raptors are one of the best road teams in Eastern conference.
As Greviz Vasquez seems to beaten his illness and will play tonight I see this healthy young Raptors squad beating Jazz like they did two months ago in Toronto. Raptors are playing smart basketball. If DeMarr Derozan will make his shots (or if he gets in a slump and stops shooting) then I see really easy win by Raps.
Toronto has bigger advantage at Point Guard position with Lowry and Grevis, and of course SG position is much better because Derozan is much faster and quicker than veteran Jefferson.
Jazz may not have Favors and Jeremy Evans on the court. Both are game time decisions.
As Raptors are struggling to play in Utah (2 wins in 8 last visits) I think this is the only reason why their odds are so high. Anyway, I think that handicap of -5 is not a risk here.
