Raptors vs Jazz Predictions
19 March 2021
Raptors vs Jazz is an inter-Conference matchup between two teams that have similar aspirations in 2021. The Raptors are a team still involved in the playoff race in the Eastern Conference, and are likely to be inside the cutoff to earn a first round playoff series.
The Jazz are certainly a playoff team in the Western Conference, and will have home court advantage for at least one playoff series.
Raptors vs Jazz has been played roughly four dozen times, with the split leaning slightly to the Jazz side. Recent matchups are dissimilar to that of the long term history however, as the Raptors have been the team enjoying worlds of recent success. History would say there is a slight lean to the Jazz side, but that is fully mitigated when considering just the recent history. In fact, the recent seasons history would tilt the expectation to a Raptors win as these two playoff hopeful teams collide.

Utah Jazz vs Toronto Raptors Betting Pick
Friday Night at 8:00PM EST at the Amelie Arena in Tampa, Florida
Why bet the Raptors?
✅ Finally back to full strength: It has been an ugly stretch for the Raptors, as they have dropped six straight games as they have dealt with absences of key players. Both Pascal Siakam and Fred Vanvleet just returned last game. OG Anunoby will return for this game. The Raptors simply do not have quality depth to withstand the absences of three key players like the ones listed, and it is no surprise their unavailabiluty lead to struggles. They will look to get the ship righted with their full roster available.
✅ Jazz developing road problems: While the Jazz are a highly respectable 13-9 overall on the road, the past few weeks have seen them struggle mightily in road games. They are 2-6 in road games in that span , but continued to be a dominant force at home. Additionally the Jazz have dropped five of their last eight overall, with all five losses being on the road.
✅ We want the points here: This is a matchup between two slumping teams that screams attractiveness for whichever team was the one getting five points.
Betting Pick: Raptors +5

Jazz vs Raptors Predictions
Jazz vs Raptors has been played about four dozen times, with the slight edge going to the Jazz on the historical split. The more recent years have been a complete reversal however, and it is quite lopsided to the Raptors side. From 2013 through 2020, the Raptors won 12 of 14 games played. The historical split is a non-factor but the recent split points the Raptors side with flashing neon lights.
The long term history is a throw away for this matchup but the recent years splits do carry some weight in this matchup. The Jazz probably carry a better roster but it is the Raptors that have had theeir number of late. History is just one indicator, and it is certainly one piece of the puzzle to look at for best predictions on Jazz vs Raptors.

Raptors vs Jazz Against the Spread Predictions
Raptors vs Jazz against the spread predictions refer to whether the Toronto Raptors or Urah Jazz win or lose by the necessary points to cover the spread. The spread is a set number of points the favorite needs to win by or the underdog needs to lose by less than to be considered a wagering winner. For a hypothetical line, we will use the Jazz -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 Raptors, at +5, would require them to either win the game outright or to lose by fewer than five points to have a wager be considered a winner.
Check above for the best Jazz vs Raptors against the spread predictions.
Utah Jazz vs Toronto Raptors Over/Under Betting
Utah Jazz vs Toronto Raptors 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 230 points. Over/Under wagers on this Jazz vs Jazz contest would be betting over or under 230 combined points for the two teams.
There are many important 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.

Toronto Raptors 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, and want the best Toronto Raptors vs Utah Jazz 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 Jazz -5 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread bet, the Jazz can be bet on to simply win outright while laying odds. The Raptors can be wagered on to win the game outright while getting odds.
In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -195 on the Jazz and expect to get about +165 on the Raptors.
With the all time series being played to a close enough to 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 side with the Utah Jazz while recent history sides heavily with the Raptors. All of the above are helpful indicators and should be considered in terms of a betting selection.

Jazz vs Raptors Odds
The NBA carries the most fluid odds of the major sports in the United States. We will often see a slow release of odds and against the spread, over/under and money line odds all fluctuate, often rapidly throughout a given day leading up to tipoff. The Toronto Raptors vs Utah Jazz regular season matchup won’t draw a massive betting market from the general public, so just a handful of large wagers could move the lines significantly in one direction or the other.
Live Streaming Raptors vs Jazz
We are currently without sports books that offer streaming of NBA games in the United States. This will certainly change in the future, but for now we are still required to turn to paid streaming services that might have the game you are looking for.
