The Charlotte Hornets play host to the Utah Jazz at the Spectrum Center on Friday night.

The Utah Jazz have been in terrific form as they’ve won 13 of their past 14 games and they will be looking to stay hot after last night’s 112-91 road win over the shorthanded Hawks. Jordan Clarkson led the team in scoring with 23 points on nine of 13 shooting, Bojan Bogdanovic added 21 points, Donovan Mitchell scored 18 points while Rudy Gobert chipped in with 11 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Jazz shot 48 percent from the field and 13 of 27 from the 3-point line as they cruised to victory after holding the Hawks to just 37 points in the first half.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in decent shape lately as they’ve won four of their past seven games, but they will be looking to bounce back in this one after falling short to the red-hot 76ers in a 118-111 home loss on Wednesday. Gordon Hayward led the team with 22 points and nine assists, LaMelo Ball added 22 points on eight of 16 shooting, Devonte Graham scored 18 points with seven assists while Miles Bridges chipped in with 16 points on seven of 11 shooting. As a team, the Hornets shot 44 percent from the field and 14 of 37 from the 3-point line, but they were ice-cold to start the game and were always fighting an uphill battle after scoring just 13 points in the first quarter.


Looking at the betting trends, the Jazz are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a losing record, 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 11-2 ATS in the last 13 meetings overall. The Hornets are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games overall.

Head to head, the over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Charlotte and the Jazz are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall.

The Jazz are coming into this one as the hottest team in the league, so it’s not surprise that they’re favorites in this one. The Hornets have been in decent shape lately and they will likely have Terry Rozier back in the lineup after missing the last two games with a sprained right ankle. The Jazz are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall and I think that trend continues as the Jazz should be too good here.
