WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE: Utah. As of Friday afternoon, 71% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Jazz to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 81% of betting tickets are also on the under.

WHO WE LIKE: The Jazz have won nine straight on the road but I don't see much value in laying the points. I love the under, especially the Grizzlies' struggling on the offensive end. In the last 32 meetings between these two teams in Memphis, the under cashed 24 times. The under is also 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these two teams, is 4-1 in the Grizzlies’ last five home games, and is 5-0 in their last five games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game. On the other side, the under cashed in seven of the Jazz’ last eight games overall and is 5-0 in their last five games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.
