Utah has been impressive in all aspects of the game to start the NBA basketball betting season and was ranked 11th on offense while ranking 3rd in overall defense on the basketball betting stat charts.

Although Utah looked impressive at the start of the NBA basketball betting season it must be noted that they played some of the worst teams in the league including back-to-back games against the Los Angeles Clippers, so it is hard to get a true gauge so far on just how good the Jazz will be this long basketball betting season.
The Philadelphia 76ers got off to a much rougher start to the basketball betting season as they were 2-4 straight up and also 2-4 against the NBA betting odds to start the season. The home team beat the basketball betting odds in five of Philadelphia’s first six games. Five of the 76ers first six games went under the basketball betting total.

Andre Miller led in assists with nearly 6-per game and Elton Brand, who was a big off season pickup for the Sixers, led in rebounds with 11.8-points per game. Philadelphia has been a disappointment at the start of the basketball betting season as it was expected that Brand would give the Sixers a shot in the arm.
Passions could heat up soon in Philly as the fans expected a lot more than what they have gotten so far this basketball betting season.
