The Spurs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Jazz are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 Friday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Spurs last 5 overall. The over is 6-1-1 in Jazz last 8 overall. The Spurs are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Utah and 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Utah Jazz look like a team that's found their rhythm where they pile up the wins and covers, and they're not a team I step in front of when they're in this form. However, this line is 100 percent disrespectful toward the Spurs. While not winning a bunch, the San Antonio Spurs compete, and that includes losing by an average of just 1.8 points and losing in the underdog role by an average of just 4.2 points. The Spurs find ways to hang around, and this is the first time this season they're a double-digit underdog. Give me the points.
