The Kings are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Jazz are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The under is 4-1 in Kings last 5 overall. The under is 5-2 in Jazz last 7 overall. The Kings are 13-6-2 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Utah and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings are not only riding a five-game losing streak, but they're losing those games by an average of 11.6 points. The Utah Jazz have won 10 of their last 12 games and they're 32-20 against the spread on the season and 19-6 against the spread at home. As if fading the Kings wasn't easy enough, the Jazz have been blind back material pretty much all season long. Big number, but I'm still siding with the Jazz.
