Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Utah. As of Monday morning, 80 percent of public bets are siding with the Jazz.

Injury Report: Jazz guard Rodney Hood missed the last game with a leg injury and is questionable tonight. Thabo Sefolosha is out for the season following surgery to repair his MCL. Dante Exum is out indefinitely following shoulder surgery last October. For the Hawks, DeAndre Bembry is out indefinitely with a groin injury.

Who the Trends Like: Utah is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings. The over is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Atlanta. The Hawks are 5-0 ATS in their last five games following a double-digit loss at home.

Who We Like: I'm not going to trust the Jazz as favorites when they are only 5-18 straight up on the road this season and have to travel across much of the country for this contest. Atlanta certainly isn't a world beater, but it is competent at 9-13 straight up on its home floor. The Hawks are healthy and playing some decent ball as of late with wins in three of their last five. I'm betting on the hosts tonight.
