OUR PREDICTION: If the Jazz were firing on all cylinders right now I might be tempted to lay the nine and let them roll against a below-average Kings squad. But outside of their 112-97 win over the Nets on Friday, the Jazz have struggled this week. They fell by three in Oklahoma City as a 1.5-point favorite on Tuesday night and then were drubbed 107-80 by the Timberwolves, at home, as a 6.5-point favorite. The Jazz are just 6-14-2 against the spread in their last 22 games versus the Kings and are winless at 0-7 ATS in their last seven games versus Pacific opponents. The Kings, meanwhile, have cashed in all seven of their last seven games when playing on three or more days of rest.
