Bets We Like With A Jazz Win
Rudy Gobert Over 14 Rebounds (-110)
OK, 14 rebounds is a big number for anybody to hit, but don’t let the sticker shock scare you away from this Rudy Gobert prop. The Frenchman is going to win his third Defensive Player of the Year for his dominance in the paint. That includes his elite rebounding.
And if there is any team that Gobert likes to play against, it’s the Golden State Warriors. Gobert posted 24 points and 28 rebounds in Utah’s last meeting with Golden State. Yes, you read that correctly — 28 rebounds. The Warriors are going to be light on the interior without rookie big man James Wiseman. Take the over on Gobert’s rebounds here.
Bets We Like With A Warriors Win
Stephen Curry Over 6.5 Threes (+120)
Picking player props from a Warriors game means we have to take a look at Stephen Curry’s three-pointers. He is the most electric player in the world when the three-ball is dropping and he has been on fire lately. Curry is averaging 7.3 made threes on 45% three-point shooting over his last eight games. The fact that you can grab this prop at plus money makes this an even better bet.
When Curry gets hot, there is almost no way to defend him. In order to overcome the dominant Jazz, the Warriors are going to need Curry to have one of those nights. Of course, it helps that Donovan Mitchell is still nursing an ankle injury, but Golden State still needs a big night from Curry.

Jazz vs. Warriors Prediction, Pick
This year’s Warriors are a far cry from the dominant teams that won three NBA Finals in three years. They are relying on Curry more than ever before as they try to steal a spot in the playoffs. The Jazz are just looking to make it into the playoffs at full health. We expect this game to be close, but we are giving a slight edge to the home Warriors. Take Golden State getting the points and the over on Stephen Curry’s made three-pointers.
Pick: Warriors +2.5
