Also, on Sunday, in the Jazz’s 94-92 road loss to the Warriors, forward Bojan Bogdanovic led his team in scoring, adding 21 points in 33 minutes played. Center Rudy Gobert closed out his performance with another career double-double. He finished with 12 points, 18 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 36 minutes of action. Utah has won just three of its last 10 games. After this loss, the team is now 15-8 on the road, 15-9 at home, and 12-10-1 ATS on the road this season.
Meanwhile, in the Suns’ 113-103 home win over the Pacers on Saturday, forward Mikal Bridges scored a team-high 23 points in 35 minutes on the floor. Center Bismack Biyombo also played an excellent match. He closed his performance with a double-double, accumulating 21 points, 13 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 30 minutes played. The Suns are not only on a six-game winning streak, they are 18-5 at home, 18-4 away and 11-12 ATS at home.
According to ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, the Suns have a 69.2% chance of winning.
Before placing bets, it is important to take into account other final results from previous clashes. In the last four head-to-head meetings, the Suns are flawless 4-0 against the Jazz. On April 30, 2021, the last time these teams met during the regular season, Phoenix won 121-100 at the Footprint Center. The Jazz haven’t beaten them since Oct. 28, 2019, when Utah won 96-95 at the Footprint Center. So keep in mind that the Jazz must get another win.
On another note, in Utah’s 94-92 loss to the Warriors, Jazz players Rudy Gobert and Bojan Bogdanovic suffered minor injuries. As of now, both players are listed as questionable on the team’s injury report. At the post-game press conference, Gobert was asked how he was feeling after the game. He said: “It’s just a little effort. I’ve never had this before, so it’s hard for me to say how many games, a minor injury, we’re going to be cautious obviously, but he’s going to be fine.”
Rudy Gobert: “It’s just a little tension. I’ve never had this before, so it’s hard for me to say how many games… a minor injury, we’re going to be cautious, obviously, but it’s going to be fine.”

Also, regarding additional team records, Utah is 29-15 as a favorite, 1-2 underdog and 12-10-1 ATS on the road, while Phoenix is 35-7 as a favorite, 1-2 underdog and 11 -12 ATS at home. Oddsmakers aren’t expecting the Suns’ winning streak to end any time soon. They enter this contest as nine-point favorites at home. Minus Crowder, Payne, Nader and Ayton, there’s a chance the Jazz could cover the spread.
Without Donovan Mitchell, who was averaging 25.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game this season before his concussion, the Jazz will have to play a big game if they want to pull off an upset tonight. All things considered, the Suns will win, cover the spread, and the total will go under 202. If you’re new to sports betting, check out our handicap betting guide.
