NBA Betting Trends

Utah

The Jazz are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games versus the Western Conference. Utah is 1-5 ATS in its last six Sunday games. 

Toronto

The Raptors are 24-4 ATS in their last 28 games played on one day of rest. Toronto is 11-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.

Prediction:

I can't for the life of me figure out why this spread is so tight. The Jazz have been shaky on the road and the Raptors have yet to lose at home, while Toronto has also dominated the series in recent times. Kyle Lowry might return for the Raptors today, which I guess in the short term could hurt the chemistry formed in his absence but I find that's far-fetched as he's a veteran who will only make Toronto better. I'm definitely taking Toronto -2 in this one.
