Utah Jazz 2024 NBA Championship Odds

Utah Jazz 2024 NBA Championship Odds

From 1984 through 2022, the Utah Jazz missed the NBA Playoffs only seven times. Utah was arguably the most consistent and stable franchise in the NBA. But the Jazz are facing the possibility of missing the postseason for the second straight year. Utah has been in the process of a rebuild, after eight seasons under previous head coach Quin Snyder, who produced playoff bids in his final six years. Despite all of that past success, Utah has never won the NBA championship with two appearances in the Finals. At best, Utah can scrap for one of the 2024 NBA Play-In round bids. Gamblers like the quietly hidden value that the Jazz provide. Utah is showing a solid profit so far this season.

Utah Jazz History

The Utah Jazz have been a model NBA franchise since their move to Salt Lake City in 1979 following their 1974 berth as an expansion team in New Orleans. Utah has never won an NBA title, but the Jazz have missed the postseason only eight times since making their first playoff appearance in 1984.

Utah made the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998 with head coach Jerry Sloan and the dynamic duo of John Stockton and Karl Malone. Unfortunately, they were on the wrong end of some heroics from the great Michael Jordan in both seasons, and the Mailman was unable to deliver on a Sunday.

Long-time head coach Jerry Sloan retired in the middle of the 2010-11 season partly because of a beef with star guard Deron Williams. Tyrone Corbin was his replacement and didn’t have much success before Quin Snyder became the head coach in 2014. Snyder led the Jazz to six straight playoff appearances from 2017 to 2022, but he resigned this summer after failing to lead Utah past the second round.
