Brooklyn Nets vs Utah Jazz prediction

The Utah Jazz continue to pile p the losses, and they don't play a lick of defense. The Brooklyn Nets are coming off a rough week, but it's fair to say they're the better team here, and they've been one of our top moneymakers this season with a 17-7-1 ATS record. I'd need more points to seriously consider the Jazz. This is a game the Nets should use to kind of right the ship and get back in the win column. I'll lay the reasonable number with the road team.
