Boston Celtics vs Utah Jazz Betting Pick

Monday Night at 10:00PM at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah

Why bet the Jazz?

Utah Jazz steamrolling in 2021: The Jazz have the league’s best record to date this season and are additionally the Western Conference’s best home team. Only the Bucks average a better per game point differential than the Jazz and easy wins have become something of an expectation for this team.

Utah Jazz at their peak: We touched on the Jazz overall body of work in 2021, but they are in the midst of a truly dominant run at the present time. They have won 12 of their last 13 games overall and have won nine straight games at home.

Boston Celtics current slump: The Celtics will be without Marcus Smart for this game and may very well be missing Jaylen Brown as well. Those absences do no favors for a team that is just 4-7 in their last 11 games and jsut 3-5 in their last eight road games. The Celtics are additionally a sub .500 team against Western Conference opponents.

The Pick: Utah Jazz -5.5

Jazz vs Celtics Against the Spread Predictions

Jazz vs Celtics against the spread predictions refer to whether the Celtics or Jazz win or lose by the necessary points to cover the spread.

For a hypothetical line, we will use the Utah Jazz -5.5. This means a wager on the Jazz would require them to win by more than five points to be considered a winner. A wager on the Boston Celtics, at +5.5, would require them to either win the game outright or to lose by fewer than six points to have a wager be considered a winner.

Boston Celtics vs Utah Jazz Over/Under Betting

Boston Celtics vs Utah Jazz Over/Under betting is a way of wagering on the contest without needing to pick the team that wins the game. Instead, these wagers are against a set total of combined points in the game.

For a hypothetical example, we will use a total set at 220.5 points. Over/Under wagers on this Celtics vs Jazz contest would be betting over or under 220.5 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 huge advantage for Over/under wagering.

See above if there is a best Over/Under play for Celtics vs Jazz.

Utah Jazz vs Boston Celtics 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.

Instead of laying or taking the points on the 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, for instance the Jazz vs Celtics Money Line predictions, but want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering.

For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Utah Jazz -5.5 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread play, the Jazz can be bet on to simply win outright while layingodds. The Boston Celtics can be bet on to win the game outright while getting odds.

In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -210 on the Jazz and expect to get about +175 on the Celtics. With the Celtics having a moderate edge on the all time series the history but the Jazz playing more even in recent years, history cannot be a determining factor on a money line wager. However, history is just one piece of the puzzle and all other factors need to be considered. The more recent matchups have been split, and we need to consider these other factors to determine the best play in Jazz vs Celtics matchups.
