NBA Betting — Jazz and Celtics Both Looking to Get Back on Track

Both the Utah Jazz and the Boston Celtics come into Monday night’s encounter on a losing streak. But it is the Jazz that is concerned about breaking its own losing streak to Boston as these teams meet up at the Energy Solutions Arena at 9:05 PM ET.

To a certain extent, both of these franchises have started to look toward next season. Neither is a contender; Boston has a record of 19-38 straight up, and they have not been profitable against the basketball pointspread (27-30 ATS). Utah is 19-36, and they have not produced a return for their basketball betting backers either, with a 25-29-1 mark against the spread.

In the NBA betting lines that have been posted at BetAnySports on this game, Utah is a home favorite:

Utah Jazz -4.5
Boston Celtics +4.5
Over 191.5 points -110

Under 191.5 points -110

The first time these teams met, it was very early in the season – November 6, to be exact – and Utah fell behind by 16 points and a half, which help the Celtics register 97-87 victory. The Jazz made only one triple in 10 attempts in that contest, which the Celtics covered as a 4.5-point favorite in the basketball betting lines. .

Things have not gone well at all for Utah against Boston, as Ty Corbin’s team has lost six straight encounters with the Celtics, although admittedly it was a different Boston team, with different personnel, that had its previous success in this ongoing series.


Boston comes into this game having lost four in a row, and they have shot below 40% in each of the last three games. Two nights ago, they experienced a very frustrating 105-98 loss to the Sacramento Kings, who were very accurate from the field (52.1%). Tempers flared, and that game saw the ejection of Celtics forward Gerald Wallace and coach Brad Stevens.

Hopefully cooler heads have prevailed as the Celts pull into Salt Lake City against a Jazz team that has dropped three in a row. BetAnySports customers should be advised that both teams will be missing useful big men; for Utah, power forward Derrick Favors is out with a hip injury, while Jared Sullinger of Boston is still suffering the effects of a concussion. Enes Kanter and Kris Humphries will try to pick up the slack for their respective teams on Monday night. In the process of losing by 17 points at home to Minnesota on Saturday, the Jazz got 25 points out of Kanter, who attended the University of Kentucky but was ineligible to play.

Most NBA bettors feel that one player who will most likely have to get untracked for the Jazz is leading scorer Gordon Hayward, the Butler product who has been ice cold lately, as he has shot slightly less than 30% from the field over his last eleven games. Meanwhile, Boston point guard Rajon Rondo, who sat out the last game as a precaution (a back-to-back) and has been known to get his teammates better looks from the “quarterback” position, should be rested and ready to go.
