The Detroit Pistons travel to Utah to take on the Jazz Wednesday night and Dave Price says that Utah will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the line at Utah –1.5, but the line has since dropped to Utah -1.

Price writes: Utah is 24-3 at home this season and 17-10 ATS in those games. The Jazz are coming off a double-digit loss to the lowly T-Wolves and will be out for revenge tonight. Utah has won 8 of its last 10 home games against the Pistons and the last 5 overall meetings the past 3 seasons. Utah is 16-6 ATS in home games versus good teams outscoring their opponents by 3+ points/game over the last 2 seasons and 23-12 ATS in home games when playing against a team with a winning record over the last 2 seasons. This will be Detroit's 3rd game on the road in 4 days and you'll see them start to look a little road weary tonight. Take the Jazz.

Public betting information currently shows that of the 3,065 wagers placed on tonight’s game, 70% of bettors like Detroit +1. Accuscore disagrees with the public and has Utah as a 61% favorite.
