The T-Wolves trailed by two heading into the fourth quarter before outscoring the Jazz 36-24 over the final 12 minutes.

NBA Betting Trends
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.
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.
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.
