Floundering Jazz Look Like Fade Material vs Cruising Spurs

The Utah Jazz have been slumping in a major way of late and are losers of seven of their last eight ahead of Thursday’s meeting with the San Antonio Spurs.

Xbet opened the Jazz as 3.5-point home underdogs with a total of 198.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 23-6 SU in their last 29 games against the Jazz.
  • The Jazz are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games.
  • The Spurs are 35-7 SU in their last 42 games in December.

Utah turned the ball over 18 times while shooting 36.5 percent from the field in a 107-79 thumping at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday to finish a road trip with a 1-5 SU mark. The Jazz were without the services of leading scorer Donovan Mitchell on Wednesday due to a toe injury and the rookie guard’s status for a two-game home set is uncertain.

San Antonio is on the opposite side of the coin right now, having won seven of its last nine heading into this one. The Spurs are playing in the second half of a back-to-back set – they rested Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker vs the Trail Blazers on Wednesday but still managed to grind out a 93-91 victory. Leonard has averaged 10.7 points and made 14 of 28 shots while playing three of the last five games after missing the first 27 with a quad injury.

The Spurs have dominated this series over the years. In San Antonio’s last eight meetings with Utah, the Spurs are 6-2 SU. OVER bettors love seeing these teams collide, as the OVER has paid out in each of the previous four meetings between the Jazz and Spurs.
