NBA Betting – Toronto Raptors at Utah Jazz

NBA betting action on Friday includes a game on ESPN between the Toronto Raptors and Utah Jazz.

The Jazz are favored in online basketball betting but the Raptors have proven they can cover the NBA odds in this series.  Let’s look at the Toronto-Utah matchup on Friday.

NBA betting history shows that the Jazz have won 7 of the last 10 games against Toronto straight up but the teams have split 5-5 against the online basketball betting number.  The Jazz are in the first half of a back-to-back as they are at Phoenix tomorrow night according to the NBA betting schedule.  Utah has won four of the last five meetings against Toronto straight up at home but they are only 1-4 against the NBA betting number in those games.

Gamblers looking at the NBA betting total should be aware that the last four meetings between the two teams have gone under.  Six of the last ten have gone under the NBA betting number overall.  At Utah, the last two went under while the previous three went over the online basketball betting number.  The teams don’t play that often, usually meeting a couple of times a year. Last year the Jazz won both meetings, 96-79 at home and 92-88 on the road according to NBA betting results.

The Jazz are traditionally a tough team at home versus the NBA betting odds while the Raptors can struggle on the road. The question will be whether gamblers want to lay the points with a Utah team that sometimes struggles to cover big NBA betting pointspreads.  The Jazz have a powerful one-two punch of Carlos Boozer and Deron Williams but the Raptors have some weapons, particularly Chris Bosh who leads them in scoring according to NBA betting stats.  Jose Calderon is also having a nice year at point guard, leading the Raptors in assists.

Friday’s always have a huge NBA betting schedule and that is the case again this week.  Open a New Account to bet on the Raptors and Jazz and all of the other online basketball betting action at SBG Global.
