NBA Betting Trends
The favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings. The Jazz are 4-23 ATS in the last 27 meetings.
The Knicks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games. New York is 1-4 ATS in its last five games versus the Western Conference.
Utah has been beating foes up, but has really struggled over the years against New York for whatever reason. The Knicks are a mess, but they've had some moments of competitiveness at home. This is a big spread and it's not easy to win so many games in a row by double digits in the NBA. I think the Jazz take their foot off the gas pedal enough to allso New York to stay within the number.
