The Timberwolves are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest. The Jazz are 10-22-1 ATS in their last 33 Friday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 4-1 in Timberwolves last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 8-3 in Jazz last 11 overall. The Timberwolves are 4-0-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Utah and 5-2-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

This should be a fun game with players on both sides who will have some extra motivation after being traded. With that said, the Minnesota Timberwolves enter this contest, losing their last 5 games by an average of 7.8 points while allowing 50.8 percent shooting. The Utah Jazz have shown some fight over the last week, and they still win at home by an average of 6.3 points while shooting 50.1 percent from the field. Mike Conley is also expected to play. I'll lay the bucket with the Jazz at home.
