Cavaliers vs Jazz prediction

The Jazz have been in tank mode for a while, as they're not winning, and they've failed to cover 7 of their last 10 games. The Jazz will also be without Markkanen and Clarkson due to injuries. With that said, the Cavs have failed to cover 7 of their last 10 games, and they're without Wade, Porter Jr. and Okoro. The Cavs also play the Suns tomorrow, so this should be a win and get out situation. I'm not laying massive chalk with the Cavaliers, especially when they have another game in less than 24 hours. It's Jazz and the points or pass for me. 

Randy’s Pick Utah Jazz +11.5
