Two teams sitting around the 8th and final playoff place of the West are clashing tonight, when the Utah Jazz (38-29), who are tied at the 8th place and looking to turn their latest victory into a streak, are hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves (32-26), who are far behind and want to return to the winning ways after their latest defeat.

Spread: Utah Jazz -10
Utah Jazz have a 38-29 record (34-31-2 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Clippers in the 8th place of the West. In their last game they snapped a two-game losing streak by winning on the road against the Suns with a 114-97 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Donovan Mitchell with 23.6 ppg, adding 4.1 boards and 4.1 dimes per game. He is followed by Rudy Gobert with 15.4 ppg and a team high 12.9 boards per game.
Minnesota Timberwolves have a 32-36 record (34-34 against the spread) so far this season are currently sit in the 10th place of the West. In their last game they saw a two-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Nuggets with a 107-133 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Karl-Anthony Towns with 24.6 ppg, adding a team high 12.2 boards per game. He is followed by Derrick Rose with 18 ppg and 4.3 dimes per game.
In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Jazz led the Wolves 2-1 wins, winning the only home game by 4 points. Jazz have a 21-12 home record, while the Timberwolves are 9-26 on the road. Wolves are better offensively, scoring 113 ppg to Jazz’s 109.9 ppg, while Jazz are better defensively, allowing 106.6 ppg to Wolves’ 113.4. Jazz have a better field goal percentage (46% to 45.6%), while Wolves have a better 3-point percentage (35.1% to 34.8%). Jazz are better in dimes made (25.3 to 24.5) and in boards grabbed (46 to 45.1), while Wolves are better in turnovers committed (12.6 to 14.8). Jazz are the absolute favorite for the win but Vegas odds give them a -10 spread and don’t expect them to beat the odds as the Wolves will definitely force a closer game than that.
