The Utah Jazz look to stay hot after winning 12 of their last 16 games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 108.8 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 106.1 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 22.4 points and four assists while Rudy Gobert is averaging 15.1 points and 12.8 rebounds.

The Suns are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games, 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Jazz are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games. The Suns are 3-8-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Utah. The over is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 overall. The over is 4-1 in Suns last 5 road games.
The Utah Jazz have won nine of the last 10 meetings against the Phoenix Suns and majority of those wins have come by double digits. The Suns are allowing 50 percent shooting while being outscored by 13.4 points in their last five games, and they're losing by an average of 12.1 points on the road this season. The Suns are also just 8-9 ATS this season when a double-digit underdog and are losing by an average of 14.9 points when a double-digit underdog. The Utah Jazz haven't been the best covering team this season, but it's hard to get behind the Suns given that they get blown out often. I have to eat the big number here, if forced to pick this game.
