The Jazz are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games as a road favorite and 6-23-2 ATS in their last 31 games as a favorite. The Pistons are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 road games. The over is 24-10 in Pistons last 34 home games. The Jazz are 12-3 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Detroit and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Utah Jazz are the better team here obviously and should be favored, but they've also been horrible against the number in the favorite role and don't have a consistent half court offense to consistently put teams away. The Detroit Pistons aren't winning games, but they usually keep games within 10 or less points. The Pistons are also coming off their best showing of the season. Early game, could see some sloppiness. I'll take a shot with the free buckets.
