The over is 8-3 in Rockets last 11 overall. The under is 5-2 in Jazz last 7 overall. The Rockets are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Utah.
The Utah Jazz went from being considered tanking and massive underdogs to getting off to a 3-1 start and now laying 5.5 points in their fifth effort. I said back in the preseason that the Jazz are far more talented than your normal team that's considered to be in a rebuild, and you'll make money on them this season. The Houston Rockets are still a young team that doesn't play much defense, and their offensive effort has been stuck in the mud early. Not sure how I feel about the Jazz in the favorite ole, but I'll lay the points anyway.
