Basketball Betting – Miami Heat at Utah Jazz

February 1st, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting odds have the Utah Jazz favored at home against the Miami Heat on Wednesday. It is the last game of a five-game road trip for the Heat according to the online NBA betting schedule.  It is also not an easy basketball spot for the Jazz as they are playing in a back-to-back situation having played in Sacramento last night. 

Basketball stats show that Miami has owned this series against the Jazz of late.  The Heat have won and covered the online NBA betting number in 8 of the last 10 meetings.  The teams split their two games last year straight up but Miami covered both games against the basketball betting pointspread.  At Utah, the Heat are 3-2 straight up and 4-1 against the online NBA betting number in the last five meetings.

Looking at the basketball betting total we see that five of the last six games between the two teams have gone over.  At Utah, four of the last five games have gone over the basketball number.  That could be the case again versus the basketball odds on Wednesday as the Heat can score points in bunches with Dwyane Wade leading the way while the Jazz have a potent attack led by Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer.  The Heat sometimes do better against the Jazz than they do against other teams because Utah does not have a dominating center.  Miami’s weakness is in the middle since they really don’t have a center.  Udonis Haslem plays the position but he is better suited at forward according to basketball betting experts.

Boozer has been leading the Jazz in scoring according to basketball stats while Williams leads the team in assists according to online NBA betting numbers.  Wade leads the Heat in most categories although Shawn Marion leads the team in rebounds according to basketball stats.
