The Jazz are 14-5-1 ATS in their last 20 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Warriors are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The Jazz are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Golden State and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
I'm not laying that much chalk against a Jazz team that's still very good defensively. Instead, I'll take the over. The over has hit in six of the Warriors last eight games on one days rest, and it's 5-2 in the Jazz's last seven games against Western teams. Give me the over, as the Warriors will get more than half this total playing in the oracle.
