New York Knicks vs Utah Jazz prediction

The Utah Jazz look like a team that's free-falling, and they continue to struggle mightily on the defensive side. The New York Knicks are coming off possibly their best offensive performance against the Raptors, and they're a profitable 11-9-2 ATS on the season. The Jazz have lost 3 straight games and have failed to cover all of those games as well. I have to side with the Knicks and the chalk in this spot.
