Utah – Minnesota
Utah Jazz traditionally play strong in the regular season. At the moment, Queen Snyder’s wards are in third place in the strongest Western Conference, and at the same time in third place in the entire league.
Minnesota are performing well compared to previous seasons. Now the club is on the 9th line of the same Western Conference, with the same balance as the Lakers and Dallas, for example. But the leaders of Towns, Russell, Edwards do not participate in the last matches.
In this regard, I wanted to play the statistics of Malik Beasley, in the absence of leaders, he always gains a lot of points. But it is not in the line.
Then I’ll take H1 (-10) with a coefficient of 1.87. The teams met a week ago, Jazz won with a score of 128: 116. What can change during this time?
Houston v Miami
The Rockets extended their losing streak to 5, losing at home to the Lakers. And Miami has an active streak of 4 wins. However, if we look at the guests’ infirmary, then there is just an awful situation. Almost all of the main rotation is sick or injured: Butler, Adebayo, Tucker, Morris, Deadmon, in question and Lauri, he also did not play in recent matches.
In such a situation, it is imperative to play the statistics of Hiro and Robinson, but the line is closed here as well.
Then I see it as the most correct to play from the hosts. Given the deplorable state of the guests, the Rockets are able to compete for victory. H1 (4.5) with odds 1.95 looks very attractive.
Toronto v Clippers
The Raptors do not even fit into the play-in zone in the East at the moment. The team is in 11th place. But in the absence of Vanvleet, Anunobi and Dragich, it is difficult to count on more.
The Clippers are still on the 6th line, but they are slowly losing ground: 5 defeats in the last 7 matches. In addition to the long-retired Leonard, George, Batum and Reggie Jackson also do not play.
Attention is drawn to the grassroots nature of the last meetings of these clubs: 96: 115, 105: 100, 92: 112, 98:88. But in the line with a good coefficient, you can take numbers around TM (209), which is not very good.
So I’ll try Away (7) for 1.81. Toronto is very unstable. The Clippers are storming too. But they just managed to beat Boston away. Here I expect at least a tense fight.
