The Raptors are 8-0 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Utah and 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings.
The Toronto Raptors are a better team with the return of Pascal Siakam, but the offense continues to come up short, and they're not a team I trust on the road right now. The Utah Jazz may be in a funk right now, but they've been the most trustworthy team, both SU and ATS dating back to last season. You're sitting on endless profit if you just blindly back the Jazz. I'll do that here against a Raptors team still trying to find their footing.
