The Jazz are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games. The Mavericks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest. The Jazz are 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Dallas and 1-6-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings overall.
The Jazz continue to have a hard time on the road this season, and the Mavs have a much more consistent offense. This Jazz team wins ugly, and that's not going to work on the road against a Dallas team that can fill it up at times. I'll side with the home team and small chalk.
