Utah Jazz vs Houston Rockets prediction

This line is confusing to me. Yes, the Houston Rockets are at their best at home where 15 of their 19 wins have come, but we're getting a free bucket with the hotter team. The Utah Jazz have won 6 of their last 7 games, and they've covered 7 of their last 10 games. We've backed the Jazz a ton over the last month, and it hasn't let us down yet. I'll gladly grab the points with the Jazz here.
