Spurs at Jazz: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Jazz 109, Spurs 104

Money line (ML)

The Jazz (-300) are way too expensive even though they just won convincingly in the front end of the double dip. You can’t lay three times your potential return, as over the long haul that’s a losing betting strategy.

AVOID.

Against the spread (ATS)

The SPURS +7.5 (-110) are a decent play catching nearly four buckets, although on the surface it looks like a bad play. However, the Spurs have covered seven of the past nine after losing by 10 or more points in their previous game, including outright wins in each of the past three in such situation.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 222.5 (-110) is the play here. Yes, the Over is 4-1 in San Antonio’s past five overall, but the Under is 13-6 in the past 19 meetings in Salt Lake City, including Monday’s battle. And the Under has dominated for the Jazz lately, hitting in eight of their past nine as a favorite and five straight at home.
