Pacers Jazz Betting Tips – Jazz Look To Extend Win Streak Versus Visiting Pacers Saturday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/24/2013 6:04:53 PM

With four-straight wins the Utah Jazz have heated up at the perfect time. However, with the Denver Nuggets keeping pace in the win column right in front of them, they haven’t been able to move higher than seventh in the Western Conference standings. Utah will look to add to its win streak when it hosts the Indiana Pacers this Saturday night, a tough test considering how strong they have looked in their past 10 overall. Fortunately for the Jazz, Indiana hasn’t been very good on the road this season, making Utah the sports betting favorite to add to its win total and keep the pressure on Denver ahead of them.

With just 10 wins in 24 road games this season the Pacers haven’t been as strong on the road as at home, something they will look to improve on down the stretch. Indiana is tied with the Chicago Bulls for the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference standings, and must finish ahead of them to guarantee home court advantage in the opening playoff round.

Paul George and the Pacers have looked good of late with seven wins in their past 10 games, although a 100-80 loss at Portland on Wednesday is something the team would like to put behind them in a hurry. The Blazers had lost six-straight before burning Indiana, and now George and company need to bounce back and put that loss in the past. George has scored a team-high 17.3 points so far, but the Pacers’ real strength is their defense, which ranks No. 1 in the NBA. Indiana has allowed an average of just 89.3 points per game this season, and also leads the association with 45.7 rebounds per game.

The Jazz certainly have the big men to make it tough on the Pacers, with Al Jefferson, Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, and Paul Milsap all able to crash the boards and give the team a strong presence in the paint. Jefferson has averaged a team-high 17.1 points and 9.8 rebounds this season, and will likely draw the tough matchup inside. Mo Williams and Gordon Hayward have given Utah a strong presence on the perimeter as well and the ability to work the inside-outside game with the three-ball, so look for them to try and keep the Pacers off guard at the offensive end of the floor.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

One of the strongest home plays in the NBA this online betting season, the Jazz enter this game having won 14 of 18 games at the EnergySolutions Arena, which is among the best records in the association on their own floor. The Pacers on the other hand haven’t been able to match the intensity they’ve shown at home on the road to this point, and after a tough loss to Portland they could be vulnerable.
