Why Bet on the Utah Jazz?
After a couple of tough losses, the Jazz evened the series in Game 4 with a fantastic 100-99 victory. The most important thing to understand about Utah’s win is that it happened even though Luka Doncic played for the Mavericks. Not that Utah knows they can beat Dallas even if Doncic plays, we should expect a confident Jazz squad to hit the court. The Jazz have won in Dallas already during the series. So they won’t be intimidated playing on the Mavs’ floor.
Why Bet on the Dallas Mavericks?
The Mavericks blew Game 4. Dwight Powell, who shoots 78.3% from the free throw line, missed a couple late in the game. If he had made both, the Jazz would have required a three to tie. If Powell had made one, the Jazz would have required two to tie. Instead of making two or one, Powell missed both free throws, which is why the Jazz took the victory.

Jazz vs. Mavericks Expert Betting Prediction
Utah played great to beat the Mavericks in Game 4. But we shouldn’t read too much into the win. Dallas looks like the much better team. Powell often hits over 78% of his free throws. So we can honestly say the Mavericks lost Game 4 because Powell missed both free throws. If Powell makes the free throws, the Mavericks probably win. But that’s the past. Mark Cuban’s team will step onto their court knowing they’re the better team.
Also, it’s important to note that the Jazz are a terrible road team against the spread. Utah also plays awful and almost never covers after taking off a day. Doncic, Jalen Brunson, who had a bad shooting night in Game 4, and Powell will help the Mavericks jump to an early lead. Once they’ve got a decent lead, the Mavs will roll to a victory.
