The red-hot Utah Jazz host the New York Knicks on Tuesday night, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

The game tips off at 9:00 p.m. ET and can be seen on AT&T SportsNet (UTA) and MSG Network (NY).

The Jazz (12-4) have been unstoppable of late, and are looking to extend their current winning streak to nine games. In their last eight games, seven of their wins have been by double digits, and four have been by at least 15 points or more. The Knicks come to Vivint Arena on a two-game losing streak, but New York did beat the Jazz by 12 earlier this season at Madison Square Garden.

  • Over-under: 211.5

Advice and prediction

The Knicks have been one of the best teams in the NBA defensively, allowing a league-low 103.6 points per game, but the Jazz have been averaging 117.8 points per game during their current win streak, up four points from their season average.

Some other trends to note: The Jazz have covered the spread in each of their last eight wins, and have hit the over in each of their last three games. The Knicks, meanwhile, have covered four of their last five.

I fully expect the Jazz to win comfortably here, but 11.5 points is just a bit too many to feel super confident about a Jazz bet. Instead, I’m focusing on the Over 211.5. The Jazz make the most 3-pointers in the league at 16.8 per game, and rank second in 3-point percentage at 40.3. The last meeting between these two teams went over 211.5, even despite some horrible shooting nights for Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanovic. This game hits the over with five minutes to spare.

Prediction: Jazz 116, Knicks 108
