The Pelicans are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Jazz are 6-14-2 ATS in their last 22 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Pelicans last 7 overall. The under is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 overall. The Pelicans are 4-10-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings.
The New Orleans Pelicans are a talented team that's better than what they've shown up to this point, but at some point they have to prove it before I can get behind them with any confidence. The Utah Jazz are one of the hotter teams in the league right now and have covered every game during this five-game winning streak. I need to see the Pelicans string together some positive results before I trust them in spots like this one. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Jazz at home.
