The Jazz are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Timberwolves are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 overall. The over is 5-2 in Timberwolves last 7 overall. The Jazz are 13-5 ATS in the last 18 meetings in Minnesota.

The Utah Jazz are starting to look more and more like the team we're used to seeing, as they've won four straight games, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 10.2 points on 50.7 percent shooting from the field. The Minnesota Timberwolves continue to run hot and cold, and they're likely going to be without Russel for this game. However, I'm still not off this Timberwolves bandwagon, and the return of Patrick Beverly will help a sometimes shaky defense. The Minnesota Timberwolves can still be valuable in the underdog role. Give me the points.
