(NBA) Detroit vs. Utah, 01/21/2022 9:00 PM, Score: 101 - 111
Point Spread: -13.00 | -110.00 Utah (Home)
Result: Loss
I'm playing on UTAH. The Pistons are in the wrong place, at the wrong time. On a rare slide, 0-2 their last two and 1-6 SU/ATS their last six, the Jazz are going to be angry. Make that "really angry," when considering that one of those losses came by double-digits, at Detroit. Utah was laying -11 for that game, too. So, that was a game they were absolutely expected to win, which will make getting some "proper payback" mandatory for them tonight. Yes, the Jazz will be without Mitchell. That's helped keep the line a little lower than it otherwise could have been though. He's a strong player but the Jazz have plenty of backcourt depth. The Pistons, on the other hand, are less equipped to deal with their missing players. The Pistons eked out a 133-131 win at Sacramento last game, helping to win our 'over' play. They're just 1-7 SU/ATS their last eight off an 'upset' win though, 10-23-2 ATS (5-30 SU) their last 35 in that situation. The Jazz have dominated the Pistons for years. They're 5-0 SU and 3-1-1 ATS the past five meetings here, three of those victories coming by more than 20 points. Look for the revenge-minded Jazz to deliver another one-sided blowout.
