In the lead up to the Christmas period, the NBA season is hotting up, and there’s plenty of basketball action coming our way. This week, we’ll see a highly-anticipated Western Conference battle on the court, as the Utah Jazz host the Los Angeles Clippers at the Vivint Smart Home Arena. Here’s our latest NBA betting tips!
Currently sitting third in the Western Conference, it’s safe to say that the Utah Jazz have started 2021 strong. With an impressive 107-86 win in their season opener against the OC Thunder, the Jazz followed with a four-game winning streak to start the regular season. Their first loss came on the road to the Chicago Bulls. Nonetheless, heading into their battle with the Clippers, the Jazz are on a seven-game winning streak – the best streak of any franchise in the league at the moment.

Despite only winning once on the court in their first four matchups, the Clippers have now turned it around to have a winning record at this stage of the season. In their latest game, LA hosted the Phoenix Suns, and were able to secure an 111-95 home victory.
