Jazz vs Magic Prediction

The Jazz are coming into this game as a 9.5 point favorite with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The Jazz have the best record in the NBA to start this season and they have been playing like they are picking up right where they left off last season when they finished with the best record in the league. The Magic have one of the worst records to start the new regular season and they will likely be one of the worst teams in the NBA at the end of the season. The Jazz have too much talent and depth on their team, not only do they win their games but their ATS record on the season is great as well. The best bet to place in this game is on the Jazz to cover the spread here as they keep rolling over teams.
