Jazz vs. Wizards Prediction
Fresh off a loss in Philadelphia, will the Wizards rebound by beating the Jazz tonight at 5:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Wizards are 2.5-point home favorites versus the Jazz after opening as a 3.5-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 205 and has climbed to 206.5 at the majority of sports books.
The Jazz enter play having won six of their last 10 games but are just 5-5 at the betting window over that same 10-game stretch. They're 26-31 against the spread on the season, which includes a losing mark on the road of 12-15 ATS.
The Wizards are coming off a loss to the 76ers in Philadelphia but are still 8-2 over their last 10 games. They're just 5-5 against the spread during that same span but are 32-24 against the number on the season, including 20-11 ATS at home.
OUR PREDICTION: I like backing good teams coming off losses when they're playing at home the following game. The Wizards are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games coming off a loss and are 17-5 at the betting window in their last 22 home games. The Jazz, meanwhile, have failed to cover in eight of their last 11 road games and are 8-20 at the betting window in their last 28 road games versus a team with a winning home record.
