Look for the Jazz to continue their defensive excellence and, at a minimum, take this one to the wire. Toronto is missing key cogs and has failed to cover its last four games. Grab the points.

Analysis

The Toronto Raptors are playing without two starters in Kyle Lowry and Jonas Valanciunas.  They’ve actually played well when Kawhi Leonard has been out, but they’ve been terrible without Lowry.  And they’ve been without Lowry for a while now.  The Raptors are 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games overall.  And they are 1-7 ATS in their eight games played without Lowry this season.  The Jazz are fully healthy and playing well, winning four of their last six with three of those wins coming by 21 points or more.  They are rested today, and the Jazz are 18-6 ATS in road games when playing four or less games in 10 days over the last three seasons.  Give me the Jazz.

Analysis

A struggling offense playing without their starting point guard is a tough, tough matchup when facing the defensive minded Utah Jazz, a team that has been cashing one Under bet after the next in recent weeks, 8-1 to the Under in their last nine ballgames.   Jazz center Rudy Gobert: “I feel like everyone's coming with a defensive mindset. When we do that, we're a good team."  It’s surely worth noting that the Jazz won by 30 at Portland in their last road tilt, holding the Blazers to 90 points with a stellar defensive effort.  Expect more of the same here!  Take the Jazz.

Analysis

The Jazz are still struggling to find their way this season and currently find themselves outside of the playoff picture in the Western Conference. The Raptors will be without Kyle Lowry (back) for the eighth time in their last nine games, but they won all three of their home games during that stretch. They are 14-4 at home, overall, so I’ll take them to win and cover this small spread.

Analysis

Take the Utah Jazz plus the points versus the Toronto Raptors. Utah (18-19) has won four of their last six games with their 129-97 win over the New York Knicks. The Jazz now look to avenge a 124-111 upset loss to the Raptors as a -3.5-point favorite — and they have covered the point spread in 5 of their last 6 games when playing with revenge from a loss at home
