Utah Jazz vs Phoenix Suns prediction

The Phoenix Suns are the better team, obviously, and they've played some of their best ball lately with their star trio slowly coming together. However, this is a letdown spot for the Suns after just playing the Bucks and having the Warriors on deck. Also, the Jazz have been sneaky competitive lately, and the last two games against the Suns have been decided by a combined 6 points. The last meeting went into overtime. The Jazz are 31-21 ATS on the season, which makes them the third best covering team in the league. Give me the Jazz and the free buckets.
