The Utah Jazz and the Charlotte Hornets duke it out at the Spectrum Center on Saturday night. Here’s a Jazz vs Hornets Prediction.

Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz were in a bit of a rut for a while, but they will be feeling much better after putting an end to a three-game skid with a 123-108 road win on Thursday. Lauri Markkanen led the team with 29 points, seven rebounds and five assists, John Collins added 22 points with 16 rebounds on 11 of 15 shooting while Jordan Clarkson chipped in with 19 points and eight assists off the bench. As a team, the Jazz shot 51 percent from the field and 13 of 31 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Wizards from the start, pouring in 36 points in the first quarter, before they went on another run in the third to push the lead out to 25 points at one stage.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The Jazz have won each of their last eight games against Southeast Division opponents that held a losing record.
  • The Jazz have covered the spread in each of their last six road games against teams that held a losing record.
  • Each of the Jazz’s last four games at Spectrum Center following a road win have gone OVER the total points line.

Charlotte Hornets

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in terrible form as they’ve lost nine of their last 11 games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting scorched by the Rockets in a 138-104 loss last night. Miles Bridges led the team with 21 points, seven rebounds and three assists, LaMelo Ball added 15 points with eight assists while Nick Richards chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Hornets shot just 41 percent from the field and nine of 29 from the 3-point line as they showed plenty of fight to keep pace with the Rockets in the first half, only to get outscored by 83-51 in the second half to suffer yet another massive defeat at home.

Charlotte Hornets Team Facts

  • The Hornets have lost each of their last seven home games when playing with a rest disadvantage.
  • The Hornets have failed to cover the spread in seven of their last eight games following a loss.
  • Seven of the Hornets’ last eight games as underdogs following a home loss have gone UNDER the total points line.

Jazz vs Hornets Prediction

The Jazz will be feeling much better after snapping a three-game losing streak on Thursday and they have a strong chance to get another win against this slumping Hornets team who are playing their second game of a back to back set. The line is hefty for this one, but the Jazz are clearly the team in better recent form and I think they win this one by double digits when it’s all said and done.
