After taking out San Antonio 101-99 on their home court back in February, a hot Utah squad will play the guest as they head to San Antonio to take on a surging Spurs team. San Antonio opened up as 5.5 point favorites, but bettors ate up the free points as San Antonio dropped to 3 point favorites. Also, 52% of the public is backing Utah.
The Jazz have been one of the hottest teams in the league winning nine of their last 10 games, but unfortunately their nine game winning streak was snapped in their last contest to Atlanta 94-99.
They subsided the lead early in the fourth quarter as Atlanta dropped 36th in the quarter, while they let Point Guard Dennis Schroder drop 41 points against them.
It wasn’t a good shooting night either as they shot 37% from the field while only making six of their 34 three-point attempts.
In their last five games they are shooting 44.2% from the field, which is a tad under their season average of 45.6%. The defense has been solid as always only giving up 92.4 PPG in that span, which is way down from their season average of 99.8 PPG.
On the road their offense has been mediocre ranking 22nd in PPG, 16th in FG% and 3rd in 3PT%. Defensively is where they turn things up as they rank 3rd in PPG, 13th in FG%, 12th in 3PT% and 9th in RPG.
Utah led most of that game against Atlanta, but a hot Dennis Schroder was able to add 17 of their 36 fourth quarter points. Things like that happen sometimes, Utah should be able to shake off the loss and move on as they have to take on Dallas before heading to San Antonio.
San Antonio Spurs
San Antonio is starting to hit their stride as they’ve played solid basketball during their home stand winning all five contests while beating playoff contenders New Orleans, Minnesota, Golden State and Washington in that span. They’ll look to complete the six-game home-sweep against Utah before hitting the road again.
In their most recent outing they took out a solid Washington team 98-90 while also being able to cover the five point spread. It was a slow-tempo low-scoring match where the more efficient team prevailed as San Antonio was able to convert 49.4% of their field goals as compared to Washington’s 42.2% FG%.
Offensively, they have been shooting 45% from the field in their last five games, which is right around their season average. On the defensive side they have been phenomenal only giving up 86.2 PPG in that span which better than their season average of 102.4 PPG.
They don’t score a ton of points at home ranking 22nd in PPG, but they are efficient ranking 10th in FG% and 16th in 3PT%. Their defense at home has been solid as well ranking 2nd in PPG, 13th in FG%, 13th in 3PT% and 3rd in RPG.
Spurs fans are probably saying Kawhi who as LaMarcus Aldridge has been powering San Antonio averaging 29.6 PPG and 9.0 RPG in his last five games. Meanwhile, San Antonio has covered the spread in all five of their matchups during their home stand.

Free Utah Jazz vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction: San Antonio too hot at home for Utah
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Spurs -3
This will be Utah’s second consecutive road game two days in a row as they have a date with Dallas, while San Antonio gets to rest and prepare for the Jazz.
Coach Greg Popovich has gotten this team to play good basketball and more importantly he’s gotten his men to play physical defense. Thats the mentality you need playing this defensive-minded Utah team.
San Antonio has been hot at home and I like them to complete the home stand against a Utah team that hasn’t covered the spread in their last two contests. Lay the small spread and back the hot home squad.
