Utah Jazz vs Charlotte Hornets prediction

The Charlotte Hornets continue to pile up the losses, they're not covering numbers, and they're on the end of a back to back. The Utah Jazz are coming off a rough week, but they've played well overall this month, and they're 28-18 ATS on the season. The Jazz have covered 8 of their last 10 games. It's hard not to keep blindly backing the Jazz, and it's even harder to find the courage to side with the Hornets. Give me the Jazz in a comfortable road win. The Hornets are terrible.
