The Trail Blazers are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games and 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The under is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 overall. The Trail Blazers are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Utah. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Utah and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Utah Jazz went from winning 11 straight preseason games to losing three straight, and a lot of it has to do with not putting much effort into their defense. The Portland Trail Blazers are another team that's not playing to their potential and are capable of shooting much better from the outside. These are two contenders who are probably tired of meaningless play and waiting for the season to begin. Give me the free bucket.
