Utah Jazz vs Oklahoma City Thunder prediction

The Oklahoma City Thunder have the ability to blow the doors off here, and they're a strong covering team this season with their 14-7 ATS record. However, the Jazz have covered 4 of their last 7 games overall, and they're 6-3-1 ATS in their last 10 games against the Thunder. The Thunder are still a young team that can allow teams to hang around at times, and massive lines aren't where I'm comfortable with this squad. It's the Jazz and the points or pass for me.
