Point Spread Pick:
Our first thoughts were how can you lay points on a Utah team that has one win (76ers) in their last dozen games? Then we look at Orlando and find they have exactly two wins in their last twelve games with both wins over the weakest team in the league Philadelphia. The key here for us is the Jazz’s home record. Utah is 14-19 at home this season and an even better 7-5 versus the East. The winning margin most be considered of course and it interesting to note that the last 7 wins for the Jazz have been by 5 or more points. Take the Utah Jazz -5.
