The over is 8-2 in Jazz last 10 Saturday games. The under is 13-3 in Bulls last 16 overall. The under is 20-7-1 in the last 28 meetings.
The Utah Jazz are picking up where they left off last season with the winning and covering at an elite rate, and you probably shouldn't be eager to bet against them. With that said, the Bulls have looked sharp at both ends of the floor, they're second in three point shooting percentage, and they're at home for a potential statement game. The line is probably accurate, but I still find value in the Bulls and the points.
