The Toronto Raptors caught a massive break as they try to pick up their fifth consecutive victory. While the latest Raptors odds originally had them as an underdog against one of the best teams in the West, they have since done a complete reversal after the injury report came out.

Toronto will look to avenge their embarrassing loss against the Utah Jazz, and they will do so with most of the Jazz rotation inactive. Not only are Rudy Gobert and Joe Ingles in the league’s COVID-19 protocols, but Donovan Mitchell, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Mike Conley have already been ruled out due to injuries.

The Raptors have most of their big names ready to rock, which could help them take advantage of a Jazz team that is playing backups, 10-day hardship signings, and Salt Lake City Stars players in this contest. On paper, the discrepancy in talent is huge.

Will Toronto take care of business and pick up a win against an undermanned team? Is there a chance the Jazz pull off a stunning upset and defeat Nick Nurse’s squad at home?

Utah Jazz vs Toronto Raptors Odds, Spread, Over/Under

The latest odds from WynnBET have Toronto as -11.5 favorites against the spread, with this squad -110 (bet $110 to win $100) to cover. Toronto is -700 on the moneyline, while Utah checks at +500 (bet $100 to win $500).

The over-under in this contest is 221.5, with the under coming in at -110 and the over listed at -110. Toronto has been hot on offense, but the under might be worth a look here, as Utah might not have the offensive firepower to keep up.

Toronto Raptors vs Utah Jazz Prediction

Toronto shouldn’t count this game as a victory before they step on the court, but they won’t be getting Utah’s best shot in this game. With most of the top scorers and defenders not playing in this game, some struggling Raptors could use this as an opportunity to get back on track.

While a team coached by Quin Snyder will put forth a competitive effort despite so many players inactive, Toronto should be able to lean on their talented starters to secure the victory here.
