On December 26, Utah and Portland will have a personal meeting as part of the NBA regular season, and we have prepared a prediction and betting tips for this match. Who will win?

Utah Jazz 18-12 (12-17-1 ATS)

“Jazzmen” try to break into the leading five of the West by various methods, but so far nothing has been achieved, although the team is moving in the right direction. Quinn Snyder’s wards are betting on defense, which so far brings a good result.

“Utah” lost in the previous match to “Miami”, however, the team was very close to victory, just the guests were out of luck (104-107). “Jazz” is the favorite of the next confrontation and there is clearly no arguing with this, because the club is demonstrating a good game in its native walls.

Portland Trail Blazers 14-17 (13-16-2 ATS)

The Blazers finally returned to the playoff zone, the team reached the eighth line of the Western Conference and the most important thing now is to break away from the group of pursuers. The guys of Terry Stots experienced a recession, though they showed character in time and even without Rodney Hood, Yusuf Nurkich and Zach Collins began to add.

I would like to note the game of Carmelo Anthony, who in “Portland” reanimated his career and showed that there is still gunpowder in the flocks. The Blazers sensationally lost in their last meeting to New Orleans (94-102), so they have not yet been able to compete for seventh place.

Trail Blazers vs Jazz – Prediction and Betting Tips

In our opinion, while “Portland” does not reach the level of “jazzmen”, all the more Terry Stots wards will have to play on the road, so guests will obviously have a difficult confrontation. “Utah” is spending a good segment of the season and the impression is that there will be no problems with the opponent, so we offer a bet on the confident victory of the hosts.
