The Jazz are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Magic are 4-1-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 0 days rest, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games.

The Utah Jazz are playing their best ball of the season right now, which includes 49.5 percent shooting in their last five games and winning those games by an average of 8.6 points. The Orlando Magic are on the end of a back to back and are dealing with some injury issues. With the Jazz looking more and more like the team we expected to see before the season started, this is a game they should win on the road. I'll lay the bucket.
