Bojan Bogdanovic led Utah with 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting including 3-of-7 from 3-point range plus 1-of-1 at the free throw line. He also accounted for six rebounds and two assists. Donovan Mitchell tallied 17 points, seven boards and two assists. Rudy Gobert registered 16 points and 14 caroms. Mike Conley Jr. had 15 points, six rebounds and six dimes. Joe Ingles tallied 12 points, eight boards and five assists off the bench. Jeff Green added 11 points and four rebounds as a reserve.

Minnesota earned a 112-102 victory Monday night at Utah despite being undermanned and 10-point underdogs. The T-Wolves trailed by two heading into the fourth quarter before outscoring the Jazz 36-24 over the final 12 minutes. Karl-Anthony Towns paced Minnesota with 29 points on 11-of-23 shooting including 7-of-15 from 3-point range. He also registered 13 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocked shots. Jeff Teague tallied 21 points, 11 assists and four boards. Robert Covington accounted for 15 points, eight caroms and two assists. Kelan Martin added 14 points and six rebounds off the bench.

NBA Betting Trends

Utah

The Jazz are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a double-digit loss at home. Utah is 1-4 ATS in its last five games versus the Western Conference.

Minnesota

The Timberwolves are 4-0 ATS in their last four games versus the Northwest Division. Minnesota is 2-5-1 ATS in its last eight home games.

Prediction:

I like the betting trend of Utah bouncing back after a lopsided home loss. It shows it's a focused franchise after some adversity. The T-Wolves should have Andrew Wiggins back in the lineup tonight after he missed three games last week after the death of his grandmother. I still think this is a great Jazz revenge spot and that is definitely the way I'm going tonight.
