The Golden State Warriors seek their fifth consecutive win when facing the Utah Jazz on Monday.
Steph Curry is rolling, but despite their winning run, Warriors vs Jazz betting lines have Utah favored to win.
However, there is only one point between the Western Conference rivals.
Golden State is Shining
Their confidence levels were waning after dropping to 21-25, but Curry started to cook and he’s dug them out of a hole.
Klay Thompson has improved his play, and although he’s still miles below his best, he chimes in with big buckets.
Draymond Green is playing solid defense without committing stupid fouls, so there’s no reason why the Warriors can’t make another run towards the playoffs.
We liked their gritty win over the Suns. They have been losing close games a lot this year, so it was good to see them grind out a tight one.
“We were due,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “We were due for one of these tight games to go our way. But the guys earned it. It didn’t just happen.”
Their recent NBA schedules haven’t been easy, and it won’t get easier against Utah. However, the Jazz are a game below .500, so they’re not exactly the best in the NBA.
Warriors vs Jazz betting lines have the Warriors at +1, which is an interesting line. The Jazz are tough to beat at home, but given the Warriors’ momentum, that could be tough to slow down.
Home Cooking for Jazz
The Jazz come off a 129-115 road loss to the Suns, but their prior wins at home were top quality.
They defeated the Bucks 123-108 before beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 124-117, so playing at Delta Center is a massive advantage.
It’s why betting markets have them favored to win, but beating the in-form Warriors is another tough test.
NBA standings have the Jazz 10.5 games behind the Timberwolves in the Northwest, so despite playing well at home, they’re in danger of falling too far behind.
Lauri Markkanen has been brilliant, averaging 23.7 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. He’s one of the most underrated players in the NBA, but he enjoys quietly going about his business.
The Jazz are 31-22 against the spread and 18-6 at home. That’s an impressive record, which adds weight to their chances of covering the small number on Monday.
However, the Warriors are 15-8 ATS on the road, so there are betting trends favoring both.
Support Coming for Warriors
We expect betting support to come for the Warriors, who are tough to stop when they get on a winning roll.
It’s a tough game to predict, but we can’t turn down the underdog odds for the Warriors, who have been the more impressive team over the last week.
Warriors vs Jazz betting lines rarely have the Warriors as underdogs, so we’re liking the situation.
We’re also including over 243.5. It’s a big line, but these are two of the best offenses in the NBA, and it could be a 60-60 game at halftime.
