Utah Jazz Best Bet for 2022-23 NBA Season

Utah fans need to get the vintage highlights rolling because they aren’t going to be watching a lot of good basketball this season. Without Mitchell, Gobert and Bogdanovic, that just leaves Mike Conley Sr. and Colin Sexton to run the show. 

You know what that means? We’re HAMMERING the under. 

In the three years before this past season, the Colin Sexton lead teams won 19 games twice and then improved to 22 wins. This is a roster filled with role players, draft busts or extremely young players. 

The entire infrastructure of the Jazz got ripped to shreds in one offseason. They are tearing it down and going to try and rebuild it back up. However, until Utah is back up, it’s going to be some rough days.
