Utah Jazz Vs. Phoenix Suns 11/10/12 Dan’s Free NBA Basketball Pick Against the Spread
Head to head, the Suns are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Utah, while the underdog and road team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The Jazz are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games, but just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns on the other hand are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record, but just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games overall.
The road woes continue for the Utah Jazz as they dropped to 0-4 away from home with their disappointing 104-84 loss against the Denver Nuggets on Friday night. While they have impressive home wins over the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers, the Jazz continue to falter on the road as they are shooting just 35% from the floor, the worst mark in the league, compared to 46% shooting at home.
The Phoenix Suns improved to .500 for the second time this season after escaping with a 107-105 victory over the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday. After taking care of the Charlotte Bobcats to end their three game road trip, the Suns started slowly against the Cavs, however they fought back thanks to a season high 26 points from Goran Dragic and 22 from Shannon Brown.
The way the Jazz have started the season is like night and day. Take away the two point loss at New Orleans and you will see that the Jazz have an average losing margin of 13 points on the road. However, at home, the Jazz have won both their games by an average of 14 points. The Suns on the other hand did pick up a win in Charlotte, yet their other two road games were losses by an average of 23 points. Give me the home team here thanks….
