Utah Jazz vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

This line is a bit soft when you consider the Utah Jazz are playing decent ball right now, with wins in 5 of their last 7 games. The San Antonio Spurs still don't play defense, they can't win games, and they're 11-17 ATS on the year despite being underdogs nightly. Victor Wembanyama is also questionable with an ankle injury. I have little use for the Spurs, especially if their best player is injured and may not play. I'll lay the small number with the Jazz.
