The San Antonio Spurs need a victory here after splitting their last eight games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 100.7 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 97.6 points on 44.8 percent shooting. LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 22.3 points and 8.5 rebounds while Kawhi Leonard is averaging 16.2 points and 2.3 assists.

The Jazz are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Spurs are 14-6-2 ATS in their last 22 games playing on 1 days rest. The Jazz are 6-19-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings in San Antonio, the home team is 34-15-2 ATS in the last 51 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The San Antonio Spurs still aren't playing well enough to be laying numbers like this, as the injuries to their roster make for hit or miss results. The Spurs are only outscoring teams by two points in their last five games and can struggle on defense. The Utah Jazz have caught fire this week both SU and ATS, and the back to back thing isn't that big of a deal considering they were able to rest after beating the hell out of the Suns. I'll take a shot with the points here based on the value.
