The Pelicans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Jazz are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 7-1 in Pelicans last 8 overall. The under is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 overall. The Pelicans are 7-15-3 ATS in the last 25 meetings in Utah and 4-11-1 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

The New Orleans Pelicans are more talented than what they've shown up to this point, but at some point we need to see results before we can back them with any confidence. The Utah Jazz are quietly one of the better teams in the league that's shown a balanced attack, and they've won and covered each of their last six games. At some point the Pelicans will turn things around, but I need to see progress first. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Jazz here.
