Spurs at Jazz picks and predictions

Prediction

Jazz 116, Spurs 113

Moneyline

PASS.

The Jazz (-450) should hand the Spurs their 17th straight loss, but the price on the moneyline is a little high considering how desperate San Antonio will be to end its skid. Bet the spread and/or total instead.

Against the spread

BET SPURS +9.5 (-102).

The Jazz were outplayed in the 1st half of Saturday’s meeting and may struggle to score Tuesday without their 2 starting guards. San Antonio likely would have covered Saturday if it didn’t collapse in the 3rd quarter.

Utah has struggled lately to win by margin vs. inferior competition and is just 1-3-1 ATS in its last 5 home games against teams with a losing record on the road. Look for the Spurs to build on their 1st-half play from Saturday and keep this game close vs. a shorthanded Jazz team.

Over/Under

BET UNDER 236.5 (-115).

The Under is 5-2 in San Antonio’s last 7 games after scoring 100 or more points in its previous contest and 17-7-1 in Utah’s last 25 after a win by more than 10 points. The Under has hit in the Jazz’ last 4 games and is 7-3 in Utah’s last 10 at home. Look for Utah to have trouble scoring without its 2 starting guards in the lineup.
