Jazz vs Mavericks prediction

This is a massive line for a Dallas Mavericks team that can pick and choose when to defend, but there's no other option. The Utah Jazz have thrown in the towel on the season as they've lost 8 of their last 10 games and the offense isn't producing with Markkanen and Clarkson out with injuries. However, both were listed as questionable at the time of this writing, so check that before locking in a bet. Still, the Mavs are heating up with the playoffs lurking, and they're a profitable 38-31 ATS on the season. The Jazz are counting down the days until the offseason. Give me the Mavericks in a home beat down.
