The Utah Jazz will host the Phoenix Suns on Friday night at Vivant Arena with tipoff set for 9:00 PM ET. Phoenix comes into this contest riding high from a victory over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, after going through a rough patch with just one win in their previous four games. The Jazz will attempt to stop a three-game skid, with losses to the Knicks, 76ers, and Wizards in their last three outings.
Suns vs. Jazz Betting Odds

Suns vs. Jazz Best Bets
Suns -1.5 (-110 DraftKings)
Phoenix hasn’t been playing their best ball, however, they most likely gained some confidence after a gritty win over the Warriors just a few nights ago. The Jazz have been a pleasant surprise in 2022, but are on a cold streak after losing three-straight contests. Over their last three games, the Jazz are averaging just 107 points, while the Suns are putting up 113.
This should be a close one as the spread indicates, but the Suns are 4-0 ATS in their last four games in Utah and 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings between these two franchises, so give me Phoenix -1.5 over the moneyline for better odds.
Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to -120)

Suns vs. Jazz Game Total Over 227.5 Points (-110 DraftKings)
The Suns are playing decent defense, allowing just 115 points in their last three contests, and 107 overall on the season, while Utah is yielding 114.7 points to opposing teams in their last three games, 113.1 in 2022. However, five of the last seven games for Utah have had totals of 227 or more and the last two wins for the Suns featured totals of 240+.
Both of these teams are hungry and despite some bumps in the road, will play competitively tonight on offense allowing the total to exceed 227.5.
