We’ve got a real good in primetime ESPN for Wednesday night. Two 3-1 defensive juggernauts are going at each other for what is expected to be a close contest.
The Clippers come in a day after an unexpected loss against a shorthanded Suns. On the other side, the Jazz also play after a day off after their win against the underperforming Kings.
Let’s look at the Clippers at Utah Jazz betting odds and game pick.

What The NBA Odds Say About The Clippers Vs. Jazz Matchup
I feel as if the linemakers are overreacting to the Clippers’ loss to the Suns here.
The Jazz have scored over 100 points only once in their first four games of the season, and that was against the Kings who are feeling some deja vu ever since Marvin Bagley III went down again.
The Clippers have yet to score under 111 points this season in any game, which speaks to their offensive efficiency.
Why Bet On The Los Angeles Clippers?
Luckily for the Clippers, their best player is wing Kawhi Leonard.
Off the bench, their reigning sixth man of the year gets a matchup with Donovan Mitchell, and we all know he’s still trying to learn the meaning of defense.
The Clippers defense is touted as one of the best, but without Paul George, they’ve underwhelmed so far this season.
They’ve given up 102 (Lakers), 122 (Warriors), 130 (Suns), and 96 (Hornets) points so far this season, and it hasn’t been against the best of offenses.
I do still think the Clippers match up well here on defense since Leonard will be on Mitchell, and Patrick Beverley will be on Mike Conley.
After Beverley’s recent remarks about these next five years being his, I’d hope he backs his words up with his play.
Why Bet On Utah Jazz?
Even though the Jazz are an outstanding defensive team, they still struggle with their wing defense.
The only wild card the Jazz have is at the center position.
Most of the game should be a matchup between Rudy Gobert and Montrezl Harrell.
Harrell, the “Energizer Bunny,” is fantastic on offense, but even against a non-offensive center such as Gobert, he doesn’t do much on defense.
Gobert could light up the Clippers here to take this game down to the wire.
Los Angeles Clippers Vs Utah Jazz NBA Prediction
Overall, I’d still like to give this one to the Clippers to cover the spread at +2.5.
I don’t think the Jazz have the offensive firepower to match the Clippers.
While they do have Joe Ingles and Bojan Bogdanovic, the former has struggled this season, averaging 5 points a game and 26.7% from three-point land.
I’m not that interested in the over/under in this game. Due to not knowing if it’ll end up a game where the Jazz are suppressed while the Clippers roll or if it’ll stay close in a medium scoring affair.
