Utah Jazz vs. Sacramento Kings Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Lauri Markkanen Carry Utah?

The Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz will clash from Salt Lake City, Utah, for a Western Conference affair on Tuesday night.

Sacramento entered the season having the longest drought in the NBA in terms of making the postseason. This has been an organization that has struggled badly in the last decade, but they feel as if this will be the team to snap their drought. Let's get into my NBA pick for tonight.

Jazz vs. Kings Prediction

The Kings are led by former Kentucky standout De'Aaron Fox.

Fox has had an outstanding season for the Kings. He is averaging 23.4 points per game to lead the team in scoring. Domantas Sabonis has also been outstanding for the Kings this year, scoring 18.6 points per game and grabbing 9.4 rebounds per game. Sacramento brings a record of 19-16 into play, which is good for fifth in the West.

Utah comes into play with a record of 19-20. The Jazz just recently fell under the .500 mark for the first time this season. This is a team that was not expected to have much success this year, but they started the season red hot. They came back to life in the month of December and they are hopeful of turning things around in the new year. The Jazz are led by Lauri Markkanen, who is having a career year scoring 23.8 points per game. 

I am all over the Jazz tonight. I will sip on the juice here and take the money line. These two teams recently played and Sacramento won a hard-fought game by one point. I see a similar type of game, but I like Utah to take this one at home. The Jazz are the healthier team tonight and I like them to get right at home. Utah has been a very good home team this year, going 12-6 in Utah. I will continue to follow that trend tonight.
