The Rockets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Jazz are 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 21-7 in Rockets last 28 overall. The over is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 home games. The Rockets are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Utah.

I'm not running to the window to back the Houston Rockets, as they're not a good team, and they got rocked on a nightly basis. However, the Jazz are coming off a rough week themselves and are losing their last five games by an average of five points while not playing a lick of defense. The Jazz are also 8-13-1 against the spread at home this season, and are 5-11-1 against the spread as a double-digit underdog. This is a lot of points, and the Jazz aren't getting the job done in these roles. It's Rockets or pass for me.
