The Miami Heat invade the Vivint Arena to do battle with the Utah Jazz on Saturday night.

The Miami Heat have been in a rut as they’ve lost four of their past five games and they will be hoping to arrest a three-game slide after falling just short to the Clippers in a 112-109 road loss on Thursday. Bam Adebayo led the team with 30 points and 11 rebounds on 12 of 18 shooting, Kyle Lowry added 25 points with five assists while Tyler Herro chipped in with 23 points on 10 of 23 shooting in a rare start. As a team, the Heat shot 44 percent from the field and nine of 41 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates with 40 points in the first quarter to jump out to an early 17-point lead, but they couldn’t keep up the pace which allowed the Clippers to run them down in the third quarter. The Heat would make one final push in the fourth quarter to get to within one point with 40.7 seconds remaining, but they turned it over on the final possession.

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have cooled off from their hot start to the season as they’ve lost three of their past four and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting routed by the Pacers in a 111-100 home loss on Thursday. Donovan Mitchell led het team with 26 points on 11 of 20 shooting, Rudy Gobert added 19 points with 11 rebounds on seven of 10 shooting while Jordan Clarkson chipped in with 11 points off the bench, but no other player finished in double figures. As a team, the Jazz shot 47 percent from the field and nine of 32 from the 3-point line as they didn’t match the intensity of a desperate Pacers team and quickly found themselves trailing after scoring just 21 points in the second quarter.

Looking at the betting trends, the Heat are 5-0 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Jazz are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games, 1-7 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record and 8-2-2 ATS in their last 12 games following a double-digit loss at home.

Head to head, the Heat are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Utah.

The Heat haven’t been at their best as they’ve lost four of their last five and they could be shorthanded once again as Jimmy Butler is currently listed as questionable with an ankle injury. The Jazz have been in a rut of their own and their confidence took a hit after falling to the shorthanded Pacers on Thursday. The Jazz are only 1-7 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record and they’ve been below their best lately, so while I like them to get the win at home, I think the Heat hang around to get the cover here.
