The Heat are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games playing on 1 day of rest and 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a win.
The Jazz are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games playing on 1 day of rest and 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games overall.
Miami won the first meeting between these two at home, 107-104. The Heat are in the midst of a tough road trip and they aren’t a great road team. Utah seems to be getting back on track, though their wins have been all competitive games. The Heat are still piecing together their new pieces and figuring out where they fit in the East. Utah’s defense should be able to contain Miami and the Jazz’ recent offensive surge should continue in this game.
