The Utah Jazz look for some consistency after splitting their last 12 games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 97.7 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 96.7 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Gordon Hayward is averaging 19.8 points and 3.6 assists while Rodney Hood is averaging 14.2 points and 3.2 rebounds. Trey Burke is dishing 2.7 assists and Trevor Booker is grabbing 6.6 rebounds.

The Utah Jazz have won seven of their last 10 home games.
The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Jazz are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games. The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Jazz have been pretty solid at home as of late and are catching the Bulls on the end of a blowout loss Sunday to the Clippers. I like the value of a rested Utah team at home in a pick em game.
