NBA Betting Trends

Utah

The Jazz are 0-5 ATS in their last five games played on zero days of rest. The over is 12-2 in the last 14 Utah games on Sundays. 

Dallas

The Mavericks are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight home games versus the Jazz. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Dallas.

Prediction:

Utah has struggled in back-to-back settings dating back to last season. While the Jazz smashed the Pelicans, Dallas should be the more-rested team even after traveling back from Toronto. The Mavs have been tough at home so far and I think the recipe is right for them to at least cover the spread here if not win outright.
