The over is 5-2 in 76ers last 7 overall. The over is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 Monday games. The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Utah and 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers in the underdog role is intriguing considering they've been one of the best teams in the league. However, as I've said in many write ups in the past, the Jazz are on a historic role both SU and ATS, and it's to the point you just keep blindly backing them until the tickets stop cashing. The Jazz have won 18 of their last 19 games and are 20-7 against the spread. Yeah, nothing left to see here.
