OUR PREDICTION: The Pelicans are just 5-11-2 at the betting window in their last 18 trips to Utah and are 3-8-2 against the number in their last 13 games overall versus the Jazz. New Orleans has been a poor bet playing on zero rest as well, going 1-4 against the spread in its last five games playing the second night of a back-to-back. The Pelicans have failed to cover the spread in seven of their last nine games coming off a win as well.
