The Jazz are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Kings are 7-15-1 ATS in their last 23 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 9-3 in Jazz last 12 overall. The under is 9-2 in Kings last 11 overall. The Jazz are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Utah Jazz have been winning and covering machines dating back to last season and are a tough squad to fade given the results. The Sacramento Kings looked good in their season opener, but I need to see more to really be able to back this group with confidence. The Jazz have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Kings, and all of those wins have been absolute beat downs. Until proven otherwise, there's no reason for me to turn down the Jazz and the reasonable chalk.
