Cavaliers at Jazz picks and predictions

Prediction

Cavaliers 118, Jazz 111

Moneyline

PASS on the moneyline.

Taking the Cavaliers (-150) straight up isn’t advised at the current odds, but I’d be fine taking them win in a parlay.

Against the spread

CAVALIERS -3.5 (-105) is where I’m leaning in this game despite the trends going against this pick. The Jazz have struggled to win games recently and are 3-5 ATS in their last 8 games.

Over/Under

With G Donovan Mitchell making his return to Utah OVER 226.5 (-112) is an intriguing wager. Both of these teams are top 10 in offensive rating and it will be a massive pace-up game for the Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers have gone Over in 5 of their last 6 games following a win and the Jazz are 5-1 to the Over in their last 6 games overall.
