Raptors vs Jazz Trends

The Raptors are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The Jazz are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 8-2 in Raptors last 10 road games. The under is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 overall. The Raptors are 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Utah and 17-4 ATS in the last 21 meetings.

Randy’s Free Pick

You can make a case for either side here with the way both teams are playing. However, I lack trust in the Raptors on the road and the Jazz have played their best ball at home, where they win by an average of 5.2 points. The Jazz are 15-11 ATS at home this season. I'd need an extra bucket or two to consider the Raptors. Give me the Jazz and the reasonable chalk.

Randy’s Pick Utah Jazz -3.5
