The Utah Jazz have been winning and covering machines all season long, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 17.6 points while allowing 42.5 percent shooting from the field.

You can make a case for either side here, but the fact we're getting free points with the Suns at home, it's tough to turn down. Give me the Suns.
