When the Utah Jazz are healthy, they can beat anyone listed on the NBA betting board. However, the Jazz have not been able to stay healthy. And when Utah has a shorthanded lineup, they are just another NBA team. Consider that the Jazz could have won the 2021 Western Conference championship. But Donovan Mitchell was not at 100%, and that doomed Utah. In a similar way, can the Clippers relate to the Jazz. LA has missed its marquee man Kawhi Leonard all season. Now Paul George is out of action to add to the Clippers’ misery index.
Utah Jazz vs. LA Clippers Betting Information
Utah Jazz at LA Clippers CashBet Wagering Analysis
Despite missing Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, the Clippers will still get plenty of sportsbook support. LA remains a respected brand with casual bettors. Home court is another draw to square bettors. On the other hand, sharps are always like a quality team on the road. Away games are where the best teams will consistently bring the most value with the best prices. Especially when that road team faces a respected brand playing at home. LA is at home with a betting public loathe to take road teams. Utah will get an enhanced price from oddsmakers to offset that casual money preference.
