The Jazz are 9-4-2 ATS in their last 15 home games and 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The over is 7-2 in Mavericks last 9 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Jazz last 6 home games. The Mavericks are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Dallas Mavericks have been in both games this series without Luka Doncic and there's a chance he's cleared to play this game, so check the report before locking in a bet. Because of that, I'm not sure how anybody can lay points with the Jazz. The Jazz are 17-21-3 against the spread at home, while the Mavs are 23-17-1 against the spread on the road. The Mavs also lose in the underdog role by an average of just 3.1 points. This series has been even through two games, so I'm not sure why the Jazz are getting so much love here, especially if Luka plays. I want the free buckets.
