Jazz struggling on the road

Utah is struggling right now, dropping three of its last four during this road trip to fall to 12-8 on the season and 4-7 on the road. The Jazz are 2-2 against the spread on the road trip to move to 8-12 against the spread. They are also 12-8 with the under.

The Jazz have been led by their defense this season. They are giving up just 105.2 points per game while holding opponents to just 43.4 percent shooting. Offensively, Utah is averaging just 106.8 points per game while shooting 45 percent as a team. They do shoot the 3-ball well, shooting 37.8 percent from the arc. Donovan Mitchell is leading the team with 24.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. Bojan Bogdanovic has added 21.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game.

76ers rolling

Along with being unbeaten at home this season, the 76ers have won three straight and seven of their last eight coming into this game. They are 14-6 on the year, 9-0 at home, 8-11-1 against the spread and 11-9 with the under. Philly has failed to cover in four straight.

Despite all the offensive talent, Philly has been led by its defense this year as well. The 76ers are giving up just 104.2 points per game while opponents shoot 45.9 percent against them. Offensively, Philadelphia is putting up 108.8 points per game while shooting 46.9 percent from the field and 35.1 percent from the arc. Joel Embiid is leading the team with 22.8 points, 12.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game. Ben Simmons is adding 12.9 points, 8.4 assists and 6.9 rebounds per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Utah

The Jazz are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight against Eastern Conference opponents, but 22-10-1 ATS in their last 33 games following a loss.

Philadelphia

The 76ers are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven home games and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games following a win.

Prediction:

The 76ers have won four of the last five against Utah, covering the spread in five straight. Their lone meeting this season with a 106-104 win for Utah at home on Nov. 6. The Jazz are struggling and have been outmatched on the road, losing double-digit games to the Pacers and Raptors. Toronto also played last night and has a quick turnaround in Philly, which is likely to lead to more struggles. The 76ers have struggled to cover lately, but the spread is only 5.5 here. I think Philly’s depth will allow it to start fast on the leg-weary Jazz at home.

NBA Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers -5.5
