The Utah Jazz need a win after losing 6 of their last 8 games. The Utah Jazz have split their last 4 home games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 113.9 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 121.6 points on 49.2 percent shooting.

The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.9 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz should be favorites here at home as if they lose this one it would be time to hit the panic button. With that said, the Jazz are 3-7 SU this season, don't play a lick of defense, and they're 4-6 ATS on the season. The Portland Trail Blazers will be without Malcolm Brogdon on top of their other injuries, so things are falling apart. However, the Trail Blazers have covered 5 of their 9 games, and they're probably better than how the public views them. Give me the points given how the Jazz have struggled.
