The last time these two teams met, Utah was able to sneak away with a 98-95 win in Detroit. Now a slumping Detroit squad heads into Salt Lake City looking to get a winning streak going. Utah opened up as 7.5 point favorites and have since risen to 8.5 point favorites, while 60% of the public is backing them.
Detroit has had a hard time finding wins as they’ve going 3-7 in their last 10 matchups. Their most recent outing was a 99-83 victory at home against the lowly Chicago Bulls, while they were also able to snap a four-game losing streak.
The offense has been plagued with injuries and inconsistencies as they are rated 23rd in efficiency. Defense is more of their strong suit as they are rated 11th in efficiency.
On the road Detroits offense is bottom-tier quality ranking 26th in PPG, 28th in FG% and 17th in 3PT%. The defense plays a tad better ranking 13th in PPG, 20th in FG%, 30th in 3PT% and 18th in RPG.
Detroit is shooting 43.8% from the field in their last five games. The defense just hasn’t been there for Detroit as they are giving up 107.2 PPG in their last five.
They have covered their last two contests, but those were at home. The road has just been brutal for them as they’ve lost their last nine road games while going 8-1 ATS in that span.
Utah has been scorching hot going 8-2 in their last 10, while also winning six straight. They also have gone 5-0-1 ATS during the win streak.
Their offense has been shooting 45% from the field in their last five contests, which is about their average on the season. The defense however has been on point only allowing 86.4 PPG in their last five games.
At home they aren’t that potent offensively ranking 26th in PPG, 17th in FG% and 18th in 3PT%. The defense is where its at ranking 1st in PPG, 6th in FG% and 5th in RPG.
After a three-game road trip, Utah comes back home for a four-game home stand. If their defense can limit Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond, then they have a chance to get the victory.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction: Utah holds off Detroit
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Detroit +8.5
Detroit has shot 47.5% in their last two contests, while covering in both matches. Utah has been hot, but I like the matchup for Detroit as Utah is a slow-tempo team that will let Detroit’s big men work the post game.
I like a desperate Detroit squad to play competitively, while Utah maybe feeling jet lagged after their three game road trip. Utah will probably win, but I’ll take the points in this one.
