Jazz heating up again

Utah was on a five-game losing streak earlier in the month, but they have won their last three games, including a 123-119 win at Dallas on Monday. The Jazz are 35-18 on the season, 19-5 at home, 27-25-1 against the spread and 28-25 with the over.

NBA Betting Trends


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.

NBA Prediction: Utah Jazz -4.5
