Portland Trail Blazers vs. Utah Jazz Monday Game Preview, TV Schedule and Betting Line

The Portland Trail Blazers are favored against the Utah Jazz tonight at 9 PM EST, and this one could end up being a real snore.

Here is the TV info for that one.

TV: CSN-Northwest, ROOT-Rocky Mountain, DTV: 684, 757, 758

The Blazers lost their last bout by a heartbreaking two points on a buzzer beater by Monta Ellis so definitely expect them to win this one, but covering the spread (-7) might be more difficult.

“I hate to lose a game like that”, Damian Lillard said after the game. “I’d rather be blown out than to lose at the buzzer. But we have to move on and take care of business in our next game.”

Felt extra bad for Lillard because he had hit a three pointer to tie the game three seconds before Ellis hit his jumper. Lillard looks to have developed his game even more from last year though, and this looks like a hungry young point guard and one of the reasons the Blazers look like one of the best teams in the league. They will certainly be too much for the Jazz in this one, but again the spread cannot guarantee they will cover.

For Jazz fans? Recommend that you focus more this year on watching small forward Jabari Parker, because you never know what could happen in the future.

One more preview coming your way today and then keep an eye out for Rant Sports Prep news coming tonight.
