Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Utah Jazz vs Dallas Mavericks
The Mavericks will welcome the Jazz to American Airlines Center as they are coming off a lost against the Raptors and the Jazz were able to hand the Pelicans their first loss of the season. Game tips off at 7:00 PM ET.
Utah Jazz's Latest Performance :
The Jazz has now won back-to-back games for the first time this season with wins coming against the Rockets and Pelicans. Rubio found his shooting stroke against the Pelicans as he dropped 28 points with six rebounds, 12 assists, one steal, and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes. He needed a game like this to boost his confidence he was shooting 21.9% from the field in his first four. When he has a great shooting night the Jazz are very hard to beat because Rubio can act as another scoring option rather than relying on Mitchell to do all the scoring. Mitchell has been outstanding against two good teams, and he even gave Jrue Holiday the business all game. Mitchell dropped 38 points in Houston and he’s back on track with efficiency. Rudy Gobert made 11-of-13 from the field for 25 points with 14 rebounds he has been automatic with the ball, making 76.9% from the field with a respectable 71.9% from the line. The Jazz will feel really confident heading into this game.
Dallas Mavericks 's Latest Performance :
The Mavericks will make their return home as they will hope to come up with a win to get them back to the .500 mark. The Mavs are coming off a tough loss against the Raptors in their last game. It is still early into the season as it was a great test for the younger guys on the team to face a team as good as the Raptors. Luka Doncic had another strong performance in Friday’s 116-107 loss to Toronto, scoring 22 points with five rebounds, four assists, four triples and three turnovers in 35 minutes. It was considered quite impressive that he was able to drop 22 points with Kawhi guarding him. He has now scored 19+ points in four out of five games and seems to be the perfect fit for Dallas. DeAndre Jordan was impressive in his last time out he scored 18 points with 15 rebounds and was 5-for-10 from the field. Dennis Smith will be making his return to the team after sitting out of the last game because of an ankle injury. It will be challenging for the Mavericks to be playing against a Jazz team who is coming off a win against the Pelicans.

Against The Spread Selection: Utah Jazz -4
My reason for the pick :
The Jazz will win their third straight game against the Dallas Mavericks as they are on fire at the moment and I don’t see them dropping a game anytime soon. Rubio finally found his shooting stroke and if he can keep this up the Jazz can be real contenders in the West this season. For the Mavericks DSJ is returning but he will still struggle with his shot as the Mavericks will drop two straight.
