Jazz come up short against Rockets

Utah ended a four-game win streak in a surprising 126-117 loss at home to Houston on Monday. The Rockets were without James Harden and Russell Westbrook in the contest and Utah was a 14-point favorite. Utah is 32-14 on the season, 14-10 on the road, 25-20-1 against the spread and 24-22 with the over.

The Jazz are a solid defense, allowing 106.2 points per game while opponents shoot 44.5 percent from the field. Utah is averaging 111.2 points per game on offense while shooting 47.5 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from the arc. Donovan Mitchell is leading Utah with 24.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game. Rudy Gobert is adding 15.7 points, 10.9 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per contest.

Spurs lose three straight

San Antonio is coming off a 110-109 loss at Chicago on Monday for a third consecutive loss. The Spurs are 20-26 on the season, 12-12 on the road, 19-26-1 against the spread and 28-18 with the over.

The Spurs are putting up 113.3 points per game this season while shooting 47 percent from the field. Defensively, San Antonio is giving up 114.3 points per contest while opponents shoot 46.2 percent against them. The Spurs are to be without LaMarcus Aldridge tonight due to a thumb injury. He is averaging 19.1 points and 7.5 rebounds per game this season. DeMar DeRozan is leading the way with 22.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends


The Jazz are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 road games and 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games as a favorite.

San Antonio

The Spurs are 9-23 against the spread in their last 32 home games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games.


These two foes haven’t met this season. Monday’s showing for Utah was quite surprising, but I think they just got caught looking past a short-handed Houston team. The Jazz have been playing as well as anyone for the last month and I don’t think Monday is a sign of any trouble. The Spurs will be without Aldridge in the paint, so that should allow Gobert to dominate on both sides of the ball. Utah should be pretty embarrassed following the loss to Houston, so I expect their best tonight.

NBA Prediction: Utah Jazz -5
