The Jazz are 6-20-1 ATS in their last 27 road games and 19-39-4 ATS in their last 62 games overall. The Timberwolves are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 overall. The under is 5-1 in Timberwolves last 6 overall. The Jazz are 14-6 ATS in the last 20 meetings in Minnesota and 1-5-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are going to get the benefit of the doubt here, obviously because they're the better team at home. However, as I've said all offseason and said in my first write up against the Nuggets, the Jazz aren't a bad team. Yes, the Jazz don't have their household stars anymore, and they're probably not a playoff team in the West, but the Jazz have many respectable players for a team in a rebuild. Sexton is a great young guard, Markkanen can score, Gay is a vet, Beasley is a quality role player, etc. The Jazz are going to make you money this season. Give me the points.
