The Memphis Grizzlies go to Salt Lake City to battle the Utah Jazz at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday. The Utah Jazz are on a three-game losing streak, last losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in a blowout loss, that saw the viral clip of LeBron James celebrating last in the game without his shoes on, after giving them to a fan. The Jazz has only one win game in their five matchups. 

The Jazz are 12-10 on the season, and are struggling as of late, but they shine this season at home as the Jazz are 8-2 record at home, and that may give the Jazz an edge in this one. There’s something about playing in Salt Lake that makes Utah better and they will be hoping that an injured Mike Conley will be able to play in this one.

Memphis Grizzlies are coming off a disappointing loss to the Chicago Bulls in a battle of two young teams.The only game in the last five games that the Memphis Grizzlies have won, is there recent away win against the Minnesota Timberwolves. 

The Memphis Grizzlies are back to their old ways of prioritizing defense-first. Even though they have not won a lot of games, they are still fourth in the NBA in points allowed this season. With the likes of Jonas Valanciunas and Brandon Clarke on the team, the Grizzlies have proven to be a difficult team to score against. The biggest bright spot for Memphis still is rookie point guard, Ja Morant who leads the team in points this season.

Memphis is 8-13 ATS this season.
Under is 5-1 in Grizzlies last 6 games following a ATS loss.
Utah is 8-14 ATS this season.
Over is 5-1 in Jazz last 6 games as a home favorite.

It's an interesting matchup of two teams that are struggling as of late. Both teams have only won one game in the last five matchups, and are looking to try to do anything to get back to their winning ways. The Jazz until recently we're very good defensive team, and The Grizzlies still are very good defensive team, so I'm expecting a low score, but I do think the Jazz win because they are at home. Final score prediction, Utah Jazz win 115-113.
