Prediction for Utah Jazz – New Orleans Pelicans, January 16, 2020, Thursday. The Utah Jazz and New Orleans Pelicans meet Thursday in NBA action at the Smoothie King Center.

Utah Jazz 28-12 (21-18-1 ATS)

Utah have won their last ten matches and, it seems, are not going to stop there. Even at a party, the Jazz easily beat their rivals. For example, in the last two fights, Quincy Snyder’s wards scored Washington (127-116) and Brooklyn (108-117). Ten days ago Utah was already arriving to New Orleans. Then the meeting with the Pelicans turned out to be tense, but the the Jazz still managed to snatch the victory (128-126).

New Orleans Pelicans 15-26 (20-20-1 ATS)

Recently, New Orleans has some problems with command structure. In each match at the Pelicans, one of the players enters the infirmary. Despite this, the wards of Alvin Gentry demonstrate quite good results. Three days ago, they even beat Detroit away (117-110). The match against Utah Pelicans is at risk again without some important personalities. Definitely not play Jrue Holiday and JJ Reddick. The access to the flooring of Derrick Favors and Jahlil Okafor is in question. True, at the expense of the last two doctors give optimistic forecasts and argue that they will play.
