Prediction

The Blazers have been struggling without their All Star Dame Lillard who's still out for another week as they have lost 6 of their last 8 games . Portland have lost 5 of their last 6 games and are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 games. The Jazz have been up and down this season but they have been playing better lately and lost in the last second agianst the Pacers. I like the Jazz to take care of businees at home this time.
