Detroit Pistons vs Utah Jazz prediction

The Detroit Pistons continue to lose games, and they're just 13-20 ATS on the season despite being underdogs every night. The Utah Jazz have quietly won 5 of their last 6 games, and they've covered each of those 6 games. The Jazz have turned their season around with the quickness, and they beat the Pistons on the road by 8 points a couple of weeks ago. I still have no use for the Pistons. Give me the Jazz by a double-digit victory.
