NBA Jazz vs. Raptors Spread and Prediction (3-9-20)

The puzzling slump immediately out of All-Star break now looks a mere course correction for Utah, which has gotten back on track with five-straight wins. The alarm is on the stop end where the once-resolute Jazz ranked last in the league in defense over the last two weeks. Can they tighten things up at home against the visitors from Toronto? Monday night’s Jazz vs. Raptors preview, courtesy of The Gold Sheet:

Date/Time: 03-9-2020, 21:00 EDT
Opening Spread: Utah -4
Opening Total: 225

Donovan Mitchell has enjoyed a recent stretch of four-straight 30+ point efforts and has taken the Jazz offense into his own hands. Toronto did bomb Utah by 20 in the North back on Dec. 1 when the Raptors put up 77 points on the scoreboard in first half, but recent efforts by the champs have not been so convincing. Tonight’s game concludes Toronto’s western road swing. Nick Nurse’s team continues to be plagued by nagging injuries (Marc Gasol, Fred VanVleet, and Serge Ibaka all hurting to various degrees into late last week), so we are a bit reluctant to back the Raptors until they’re at full strength.

Utah Jazz vs. Toronto Raptors Pick: Utah 119 – Toronto 110
