Chicago Bulls vs Utah Jazz Betting Pick
This game will take place at 9:00PM EST at the Vivint Arena.
Why bet the Utah Jazz:
✅ Jazz are a force at home: The Jazz continue to be dominant at a mind boggling level. Their home floor is the most difficult to play in the NBA, and by a wide margin. Their 20-2 home record continues to not do them justice for how well they have played. They are both the best offensive and defensive team in the league in home games. Their +14.8 average point differential is still over six points per game better than the second best home team. This is a case where the home team that is best at steam rolling opponents is hosting just an average opponent.
✅ Conference splits: The Cavs have played the Eastern Conference even, but have struggled against the Western Conference. Their 10-16 record against the West perfectly sums up those struggles. Also notable is the Bulls have lost seven of ten road games agaisnt the West.
On the other hand, the Jazz have been dominant against the East. They are 20-5 against the East including a perfect 10-0 on their home floor.
✅ Recent Form: These teams are heading in opposite directions. The Bulls are in the midst of a five game losing streak. They have also lost seven of eight and four of five road games.
The Jazz are not having such issues. They have won seven straight . That includes blowing their last two Eastern Conference home opponents out of the water by a combined 69 points. They have also won 20 straight home games since losing their first two of the season. Again their average differential in home game is a whopping +14.8 points per game.
The Pick: Jazz -12

Over/Under wagers on this Jazz vs Bulls contest would be betting over or under 224.5 combined points for the two teams.
There are many factors to be considered when diving into Over/Under wagering. These factors include pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency. Knowing which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor is a large edge when over/under wagering.

Chicago Bulls vs Utah Jazz Moneyline Predictions
Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread out of play in terms of the wager.
Instead of laying or taking the points on the point spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game with our best Chicago Bulls vs Utah Jazz Money Line predictions, a Money Line wager is worth considering. This will allow you to avoid the pesky point spread and simply pick a winner.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Jazz -12 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread bet, you can bet the Jazz to simply win outright while laying odds. You can bet the Bulls to win the game outright while getting odds.
In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -770 on the Jazz and expect to get about +525 on the Bulls.
With the all-time series being played to essentially an even split, history cannot help as a determining factor on a money line wager in this instance. However, history is just one piece of the puzzle and all other factors need to be considered. The current season’s trends siding with the Utah Jazz is a helpful indicator and is more important in terms of a betting selection.
