Nikola Vucevic is averaging 23.9 points and 11.7 rebounds while Evan Fournier is averaging 18.8 points and 3.9 assists.

The Jazz are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games and 23-5 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Magic are 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 Saturday games and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 6-2-1 in Jazz last 9 road games. The under is 5-1 in Magic last 6 overall. The Jazz are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Orlando and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Utah Jazz have been winning and covering machines all season long and aren't a team you should be eager to step in front of. However, the Jazz played last night in a physical game against the Heat, and we could see some tired legs here. Also, the Magic are playing some of their best ball of the season, winning four of their last eight games and have improved defensively. Jazz should win, but this is a ton of points. I'll grab them with the Magic.
