Jazz Have Run into an ATS Wall

The Cleveland Cavaliers are used to grabbing most of the headlines in the East, but the Utah Jazz have quietly been getting the job done out West while the media focuses on high-profile teams like the Golden State Warriors. Oddsmakers initially set the wine and gold as 3.5-point road faves with an OVER/UNDER of 204.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 1-3 ATS in their last four games against the Jazz.
  • The Cavaliers are 1-6 SU in their last seven games on the road against the Jazz.
  • The Jazz are 0-5 SU and ATS in their last five games against teams with winning records.

Newly acquired shooting guard Kyle Korver could make his Cleveland debut tonight. Korver, who recently came over from Atlanta, will be able to play for the Cavs once Mike Dunleavy reports to the Hawks. Dunleavy is expected to do so this afternoon, meaning the sharpshooting Korver will be able to join his new teammates.

Cleveland has had great success against Utah in recent meetings. In the Cavaliers’ past seven with the Jazz, they’re a solid 5-2 SU.

Utah has hit an absolute wall when it comes to covering the spread in the last few weeks. The Jazz are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 tilts.
