We saw just how well the Jazz can play when undermanned on Monday night, taking the Suns close into the fourth quarter without Gobert, Mitchell or Conley. So what’s changed between now and then? The Jazz get back Conley and the game is in Utah. The Suns continue to show weakness in their bigs and the Jazz surprised with some solid play from Hassan Whiteside in the absence of Gobert. I think the addition of Conley could provide the defensive boost on the perimeter they need to lock down a win tonight, as the home dogs.
@KeepTheJuice Wednesday NBA Picks - 1/26
Utah Jazz (30-18) vs. Pheonix Suns (37-9)
UTAH JAZZ ML @ +105
Toronto Raptors (23-22) vs. Chicago Bulls (29-17)
This is a little bit of a risky pick. As the story of this part of the season has gone, injuries are hurting both these teams. The Bulls are missing Lonzo and Caruso on long term injuries, while Vucevic is questionable for tonight. The Raptors are potentially without VanVleet and Barnes. However the indication from the Raptors is that VanVleet’s injury is not very serious and he is more likely to play than not. These Raptors at full strength are one of the best teams in the NBA. On the other hand, the Bulls miss Lonzo and Caruso more than it shows. Getting LaVine back is a boost but they are still missing the perimeter defense. Take the Raptors to cover, if Vucevic is out as well, the ML bet is very much in play.
TORONTO +4 @ -110
