The Toronto Raptors travel to Salt Lake City to go head to head with the Utah Jazz at the Vivint Smart Home Arena. Toronto fell to the Phoenix Suns last Monday while the Jazz beat the Dallas Mavericks at home last weekend. The Raptors and Jazz are both middle-of-the-pack teams in their respective conferences and are both 3-2 in their last 5 encounters. However, oddsmakers have the home team in Utah coming out on top in this match.
Micah Potter is still out for the Jazz tonight but the Raptors have Anunoby and Porter Jr. out. Other than that, both teams will field their offensive stars in Markkanen and Siakam tonight. In their last match against the Suns, Toronto held up nicely here and there but ultimately an explosive 4th quarter for Phoenix sunk the Raptors. With the Suns being a better ranked team than the Jazz and currently in better form as well, it may seem odd that the Raptors are underdogs tonight but the numbers pose a different angle.

Toronto may not allow Utah to draw back as they did against Dallas but Utah has the tools to outclass Toronto despite their similar records and current trajectory.
