Jazz vs. Nets Predictions
After finishing second in the East with a record of 49-23 SU last year, Brooklyn barreled out to a similarly triumphant start to the season, as the Nets opened with an impressive 26-14 SU run – with 15 of those victories coming by eight points or more.
The Nets have been incredibly inconsistent since trading away James Harden though, considering Brooklyn enters Monday riding a head-scratching 11-20 SU skid – while scoring just 112.1 OPPG and surrendering 116.3 DPPG across that window.
On the other hand, Utah also dominated to start the season, as the Jazz kicked things off with an impressive 26-9 SU and 17-17-2 ATS run – with 20 of those SU victories coming by 10+ PTS.
Utah has been on quite the rollercoaster with injuries since January though, considering the Jazz enter Monday riding a bumpy 18-17 SU and 14-20-1 ATS skid – while generating 112.2 OPPG and allowing just 109.1 DPPG during that timeframe.
I’ll back Brooklyn here, as the Nets are 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS in their last six games, while tallying 126.7 OPPG and allowing 112 DPPG during that span – likely presenting an uphill battle for a Jazz squad that’s playing with a rest disadvantage, and averaging just 113.9 OPPG across their latest 3-5-1 ATS skid.

Utah Jazz Betting Analysis
- SU: 44-26
- ATS: 30-37-3
- O/U: 32-36-2
The Jazz have been one of the most consistent squads in the West across the last few regular seasons, which is no fluke, as they continuously maintain a very well-balanced attack, highlighted by Utah leading the league in offensive efficiency by a healthy margin (1.130 OE) – while also ranking eighth in defensive efficiency (1.064 DE).
Utah’s consistency quickly fades without the combined presence of Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert though, considering the Jazz’ top-ranked offensive attack is averaging just 112.2 OPPG across their latest 18-17 SU stretch – with roughly half of those SU losses coming in the absence of Mitchell or Gobert (9).
Brooklyn Nets Betting Analysis
- SU: 37-34
- ATS: 29-40-2
- O/U: 37-33-1
After falling to Milwaukee in a thrilling seven-game conference semi-final set, the Nets bounced back with an excellent start to this season, as Brooklyn cruised into January boasting a 26-14 SU record – yet still ranked near the bottom of the barrel ATS at that point with a record of 17-22-1 ATS.
Brooklyn completely fell apart during KD’s latest absence though, considering Nets enter Monday riding a frustrating 11-20 SU skid, which includes a 6-10 SU tally in matchups with Kyrie Irving – and a 5-10 SU mark in matchups without him.
Jazz vs. Nets Head-to-Head
The Jazz and Nets split a two-game regular-season set last year, with each team posting a blowout victory by 30+ PTS. The most recent meeting between these teams took place last month though, which resulted in another blowout victory for Utah (125-102, U 228).
Key Players to Watch
- UTA: Donovan Mitchell - SG (25.7 PPG, 4.1 REB, 5.5 AST)
- UTA: Rudy Gobert - C (15.5 PPG, 14.8 REB, 2.2 BLK)
- BKN: Kevin Durant - SF (29.4 PPG, 7.2 REB, 6 AST)
- BKN: Seth Curry - SG (15.4 PPG, 3.3 REB, 3.8 AST)
Jazz vs. Nets Betting Conclusion
After extending their win streak to three games with a road victory over the Knicks last night, the Jazz hit the road again for Monday’s contest as short underdogs against the Nets at Barclays Center – marking just the sixth time Brooklyn has been favored in their last 21 games.
I’ll back Brooklyn here, as the Jazz are 6-4 SU and 3-6-1 ATS in their last ten games, while tallying 115.7 OPPG and allowing 109.8 DPPG during that timeframe – setting the stage for a tough road matchup against a well-rested Nets squad that’s averaging 126.7 OPPG across their latest 5-1 SU, 4-2 ATS run.
