The Miami Heat are allowing 37.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.1 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz look to stay hot after winning 17 of their last 18 games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 114.6 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 105.8 points on 43.9 percent shooting.

The Heat are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Jazz are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Heat last 5 overall. The Heat are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Miami Heat are playing their best ball of the season right now and have an edge in terms of rest. However, as I've said in previous write ups during this run, I'm simply not betting against the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are on a historic run both straight up and against the spread and you shouldn't be looking to bet against them until the tickets stop cashing. I'm still riding the Jazz bandwagon.
