BETTING TRENDS

Orlando are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games against Utah.

Orlando are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against Utah.

Orlando are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games on the road.

Orlando are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Utah.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Utah's last 7 games.

Utah are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Utah's last 9 games against Orlando.

Utah are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Magic have struggled this season but they have been playing better lately and are 6-2 ats in their last 8 games on the road. The Jazz have lost 7 of their last 10 games but they're 5-0 ats in their last 5 games playing at home against the Magic. Collin Sexton is ready to return which will be a huge boost to the Jazz ofense but Olynyk is still out so they will struggle in rebounds on this game. Utah is allowing over 116 points at home so I expect a high scoring game. Take the over.
