Utah Jazz Moneyline -160 at DraftKings Sportsbook

Utah is one of the best teams in the NBA. They have been all year long. That is the consistency bettors need to look into when making bets in sports with long seasons. Not only have they been consistent, but they win against the best teams. The Pelicans are getting hot this second half of the season. Once Brandon Ingram came back, the team started clicking, and with CJ McCollum, the Pelicans have plenty of talent. But they lack depth. Without depth, the Jazz will beat this team in the fourth quarter.

Phoenix Suns -6.5 -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook

The Sun might be without Devin Booker for this game. I think that is okay. They have plenty of talent on this team to win games without him. Cameron Johnson, Mikal Bridges, and DeAndre Ayton have proven they can carry this team if needed. The New York Knicks do not have much besides Julius Randle and RJ Barrett. Barrett has been looking like a brand new player lately, but that may not be enough for the Knicks to start winning games. Until the Knicks start winning, the Suns have the best value.

Detroit Pistons +4 -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook

The Pistons are not the best team this year. That has been obvious all year long. Still, the Pistons are keeping games close and doing that consistently. In their last six games, their scoring differential has been -0.83. The Pacers are inconsistent and have been playing a lot of minutes lately with two overtime games in the last week. This game is one that bettors might be able to get a sneaky underdog win. Take the consistency in this game with the Pistons.
