The Jazz led the Mavs 2-1 wins last season. They were 1-1 at home, winning by 112-107 and losing by 114-122. Utah is 7-2 at home, while Dallas is 6-6 on the road. Jazz have a better offense (113.1 to 109.3 ppg) and the third-best defense in the league (105.3 to 110.2 ppg).

I’m going to pick the Jazz with -4.5 today. Even without Donovan Mitchell, they have the depth to prevail once again against a below average Mavericks squad this season.

Dallas Mavericks vs Utah Jazz Prediction: Utah Jazz -4.5 (-109)
