New Orleans at Utah

5 units on New Orleans +8 (-110) (risk 5 to return 5)  RESULT: LOSS

The Jazz have been a top-notch team at home over the last two years as they have dropped just 10 games. The Hornets are no pushover however, and I see value here as the Hornets were the same eight-point dog at the Lakers. Are the Jazz on that same level? There is definately an overlay at work here with the Jazz’s home record, but we don't need a win in this price range. Chances are that the oddsmakers see the Hornets here playing on consecutive nights and juiced the line. What they don't know is that the Hornets have been the best team in the NBA playing in the second game of back-to-back nights as they have turned in a bookie-burning 31-14-3 ATS mark in their last 48 games. There are just too many points here, so I'll grab the Hornets.
