Jazz vs Mavericks Betting Preview

The Dallas Mavericks have had a tough time lately. They’re missing All Star guard Luka Doncic, going 3-6 without him. Also missing for the foreseeable future are Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. Despite the injuries, Dallas now has to travel to Utah to play the third-best team in the league.

Utah have played good, consistent team basketball all season long. They’re 8-2 in their last 10 and have five players averaging double figures. What’s more is that the Jazz have remained unscathed by the Covid outbreak. They’ve been healthy for the majority of the season which has allowed them to maintain their high standard of basketball.

With 10 players out due to Covid and other injuries, Dallas will have a very tough time in Utah. The Jazz lead the league in scoring and are a top defensive team and unfortunately Dallas just don’t have the personnel to get it done.
