On January 02, 2020, 8:00 PM ET, United Center “Chicago” and “Utah” will determine the strongest in the NBA regular season, and we have prepared a prediction for this confrontation. Will the “Bulls” be able to surprise?

Utah Jazz 21-12 (15-17-1 ATS)

The Jazzmen are doing everything possible to finally have the fifth place of the Western Conference become them. Quin Snyder’s team works great on defense, which in most fights only brings problems to rivals.

Utah has not lost for three games, as there was first a victory over Portland (121-115) and Clippers (120-107), and in the last match the club defeated Detroit (104-81). Jazz players are in good shape, unless Mike Conley can be distinguished from the losses, although the team has been looking pretty good lately too.

Chicago Bulls 13-21 (18-16 ATS)

Jim Boylen’s wards make good use of the opponents’ problems, thanks to which they have risen to ninth place in the Eastern Conference. With such a pace, the team will be able to compete even for a place in the playoffs, although it is too early to run ahead of schedule.

“Chicago” was defeated in the previous meeting of “Milwaukee” with a score (102-123), which clearly affected the players’ self-esteem. On the other hand, such a result should add motivation to the “bulls”, so the next opponent will face far from a simple confrontation, especially in the Bulls home arena.
