The Utah Jazz has had an outstanding mark against the Minnesota Timberwolves in recent seasons. Utah will be entering play with Minnesota with four straight wins and seven of eight wins outright against the Timberwolves. Utah is also 7-1 ATS in their past eight head to head with the Timberwolves. The Jazz got off to a horrid start to this season.

The Utah Jazz has covered their past three games. They come off a nice 21 point road victory at Detroit on Friday. Prior to that effort they go into San Antonio as a +9 ½ point road underdogs and are very competitive in a four point defeat. On January 13th the Utah Jazz played host to the Denver Nuggets where the Jazz came away with the 118-103 home victory against the Nuggets and covering as a +6 point underdog. We have seen an upsurge offensively by Utah as the team has tallied 102 points or greater in their past five games. Minnesota is a team to play against like we did on Friday against Toronto. Minnesota ranks 26th in shooting and 30th and last in the NBA in defensive field goal percentage. Take Utah getting 10 points against the worst defensive team in the NBA.
