Betting Trends to Know

Utah suffered the most embarrassing loss of the season, falling 118-68 to Dallas on Wednesday. The last NBA team to score fewer than 70 points was Washington on Dec. 4, 2017.

The Jazz are only the ninth team to lose a game by 50 or more points since 2005. The previous eight teams went 2-6 straight-up and 3-4-1 against the spread in their next game.

Teams that scored fewer than 70 points in their previous game have gone 65-70-2 ATS the next time they played since 2005. John Ewing
