Donovan Mitchell is averaging 25.9 points and 5.2 assists, while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 18.2 points and 4.2 rebounds.

The Cavaliers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games. The Jazz are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games and 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Jazz last 7 overall. The under is 4-0 in Cavaliers last 4 road games. The Cavaliers are 1-8-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Utah and 5-16-3 ATS in the last 24 meetings.
It was a struggle offensively when these clubs met a little over a month ago, and you probably shouldn't expect much different here. Both the Jazz and Cavs are above average defensively, and the under is 8-2-1 in the last 11 meetings between these clubs. The under has cashed in four straight games for the Cavs. This should be a physical, slow paced game where points are tough to come by. Give me the under the hefty total.
