Teams looking to build on winning streaks meet when the Utah Jazz face the Cleveland Cavaliers in an interconference matchup on Sunday. Utah (15-7) has won six in a row against Cleveland (13-10). Utah is favored by five points at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is set at 211.5 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NBA odds page). 

Before making any Jazz vs. Cavaliers picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $10,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 7 of the 2021-22 NBA season up over $1,500 on all top-rated NBA picks this season. It's also on a stunning 117-77 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread that dates back to last season. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows Utah shooting guard Donovan Mitchell powers the offense, averaging 23.7 points, 5.1 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game. Mitchell is coming off back-to-back 30-point performances, including a 34-point, six-assist effort against Boston on Friday. He ranks 14th in the league in points per game, and ranked ninth in scoring average in 2020-21 at 26.4. An all-star last season, Mitchell is the fourth-fastest active NBA player to reach 6,000 career scoring points.

The model also knows Cleveland has also won its last four games by 13 points or more, the first time since 2010 that they have done that. Leading the offense is point guard Darius Garland, who is coming off a 32-point, 10-assist game in a 116-101 win at Washington on Friday. Garland is averaging 19.1 points, 7.3 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. He has reached double figures in 19 consecutive games and in 20 of 21 games in 2021-22. Garland also has six double-doubles on the year.
