Jazz vs. Clippers Predictions

After earning the top spot in the West with a record of 52-20 SU last year, Utah initially kept that same train rolling with another dominant start to this season, as the Jazz opened with an impressive 26-9 SU and 17-17-2 ATS run – with 20 of those SU victories coming by 10+ PTS.

The Jazz have been on quite the injury rollercoaster since mid-January though, considering Utah enters Sunday riding a bumpy 19-21 SU and 15-24-1 ATS skid – while scoring just 110.9 OPPG and surrendering 109.3 DPPG during that timeframe.

On the other hand, the Clippers posted a surprisingly strong start to the season despite the absence of five-time All-Pro Kawhi Leonard, as Los Angeles kicked things off with a sturdy 16-15 SU run – with ten of those victories coming by 10+ PTS.

However, the Clippers have been incredibly inconsistent without Paul George, considering Los Angeles is 20-24 SU and 22-22 ATS since PG’s latest injury – while tallying just 107.7 OPPG and allowing 110.5 DPPG across that window.

I’ll back Utah here, as the Clippers are 2-8 SU and 3-7 ATS in their last ten games, while scoring just 103.2 OPPG and surrendering 114.4 DPPG during that span – setting the stage for another unfavorable matchup against a Jazz squad that’s averaging 111.8 OPPG across their latest 9-8 SU stretch.

Utah Jazz Betting Resources

  • SU: 45-30
  • ATS: 31-41-3
  • O/U: 33-40-2

The Jazz have been one of the most consistent squads in the West across the last few regular seasons, which is no fluke, as Utah continuously maintains a very well-balanced attack, highlighted by Donovan Mitchell and company leading the league in offensive efficiency by a decent margin (1.128 OE) – while also ranking 12th in defensive efficiency (1.072 DE).

However, Utah’s consistency quickly fades without the combined presence of Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, considering the Jazz’ top-ranked offensive attack is averaging just 110.9 OPPG across their latest 19-21 SU stretch – with nearly half of those SU losses coming in the absence of Mitchell or Gobert (10).

Los Angeles Clippers Betting Analysis

  • SU: 36-39
  • ATS: 36-39
  • O/U: 34-38-3

Most bettors steered away from the Clippers after Kawhi’s devastating injury last postseason; however, it turns out they’re still a decent squad without him, considering L. A. quickly handled business against Utah for the remainder of the second round, and then went toe-to-toe with Phoenix for the length of a competitive six-game Western Conference Finals’ set despite the absence of their primary scoring threat.

However, the Clippers’ offense has struggled miserably without George though, considering Los Angeles enters Tuesday riding an exhausting 20-24 SU skid – while scoring 110 PTS or less in 23 of those contests (107.6 OPPG).

The Jazz are 1-4 ATS in their last five games. (AP)

Jazz vs. Clippers Head-to-Head

Utah won two-of-three regular-season matchups against the Clippers last year, with both Jazz’ victories staying well under the total at an average of 208 PPG, while L. A.’s lone win barely went over with a score of 116-112 (O 227). These teams also met up in the second round of last year’s playoffs, which resulted in a six-game series victory for the Clippers. However, Utah is 2-0 SU against the Clippers this season, with both matchups going over the total at an average of 220 PPG.

Key Players to Watch

  • UTA: Donovan Mitchell - SG (25.9 PPG, 4.2 REB, 5.4 AST)
  • UTA: Rudy Gobert - C (15.3 PPG, 14.6 REB, 2.1 BLK)
  • LAC: Reggie Jackson - PG (16.9 PPG, 3.7 REB, 4.9 AST)
  • LAC: Marcus Morris - PF (15.7 PPG, 4.5 REB, 2.1 AST)

Jazz vs. Clippers Betting Conclusion

After extending their losing streak to five games with an ugly home loss to the Sixers on Friday night (L, 122-97), the Clippers enter Tuesday’s contest as short home underdogs against the Jazz at Crypto.com Arena – marking the sixth straight game L. A. has been an underdog in.

I’ll back Utah here, as the Jazz are 14-9 SU and 10-12-1 ATS in their last 23 games, while generating 113.1 OPPG and allowing just 111.9 DPPG during that span – likely presenting an uphill battle for a Clippers squad that’s averaging 103.2 OPPG across their latest 2-8 SU skid.

Jazz vs. Clippers Betting Trends

  • The Jazz are 1-4 ATS in their last five games.
  • The Clippers are 4-2 ATS in their last six matchups against Utah.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the last six Jazz' games.
  • The Clippers are 0-5 ATS in their last five games.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the last seven matchups between the Clippers and Jazz.
