(NBA) Toronto vs. Utah, 12/03/2014 4:00 PM, Score: 123 - 104
Point Spread: 5.00 | -110.00 Utah (Home)
Result: Loss
This is a 10* play on the Utah Jazz.

The Jazz will try to avoid a seventh straight loss as they host Toronto tonight, but they are catching the Raptors at the right time. This is a really tough spot for the visitors, who are without leading scoring DeMar DeRozan. Toronto defeated the Kings in Sacramento last night, but tonight's game will be the second in as many many nights, and third game in four nights.

This is the final game of this three game West Coast road trip, and they were already upset by the Lakers on Sunday. The Jazz came up just short on Monday, losing 103-101 to Denver. They didn't have Derek Favors in the lineup as he sat out the game with the flu. He's set to return tonight against the undermanned Raptors.

The Raptors haven't been a good bet when they've play the Jazz in recent seasons, failing to cover in five of their last seven visits to Utah, and going just 4-11 ATS over the last 15 meetings overall.

Utah's record is pretty ugly looking, but keep in mind that they have to play the Western Conference powerhouses while Toronto has feasted on many of the East's minnows.

Take UTAH.
