Money line

PASS on the money line unless you are parlaying it with other bets. The price isn’t worth the payout alone.

The Jazz are rolling but have struggled more on the road (18-14) than at home (23-10). However, the Spurs have fewer wins at home (12-20) than on the road (13-21).

The two teams have split their two previous games this season, each winning at the other’s home arena.
