Utah is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games, 9-4 against the spread against the Western Conference, and 7-15 against the spread on no rest. Memphis is 7-3-2 against the spread in their last 12 games, 5-2 against the spread against the Western Conference , and 5-1-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record. Memphis is 8-17 against the spread in their last 25 games against Utah.
With the total set at 189 I like the over in this one as both teams should be able to do enough to get it done here. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
