The Hawks have really been struggling lately so it’s pretty easy to want to take the Jazz here tonight. Atlanta has lost four in a row both straight up and at the pay window by dropping games in Detroit, at home against Boston, in Minnesota, and at Cleveland. The Cavs loss was particularly devastating since it was by 16 points to a very sub-par team.
The Jazz are a little disappointing this year at 19-18, but they do have wins and covers in four of their last five games. Utah is coming off a solid 10-point win in Charlotte on Wednesday night and preceded that game with a six-point win over Dallas.
A solid system backs our play that says to go against home favorites after four or more straight losses when they are playing their eighth game in 14 days or less. This system is 142-88 since 1996. Plus, Atlanta is just 29-45 ATS as a home favorite the last three years.
