The Jazz are just 1-6-1 against the spread in their last eight games versus the Mavs and are winless at 0-3-1 against the number in their last four games played in Dallas. The favorite has also dominated in this series, going 22-8-1 against the number in the last 31 meetings while the home team is 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
