The 14-16 Utah Jazz visit the 14-14 Houston Rockets tonight. Both teams have been disappointing so far this year, but there are signs that things could be turning around. What does that mean for tonight’s spread?

Betting Trends to Know

The Jazz are coming off one of their worst performances of the season, shooting 31.5% and losing by seven to the Magic in Orlando.

Did You Know? Since 2005, when teams play a road game against the Heat or Magic and then continue their road trip to any other city, they are 321-263-6 ATS (55%), with a 7.4% return on investment.

The Jazz shot 31.5% from the field in their loss to the Magic — their second-worst shooting performance of the season. Under Quin Snyder, the Jazz are 24-15 ATS (61.5%) after shooting below 40% from the field in their previous game, making Snyder the most profitable coach in the NBA in this spot since being hired in Utah. — Evan Abrams
