Sonics +19 at Jazz (NBA)

The Utah Jazz try to start a new consecutive game home winning streak tonight, hosting the lowly Seattle SuperSonics.Last Thursday night, the Jazz saw their 16-game win streak at Energy Solutions Arena snapped by the Western Conference leading Los Angeles Lakers. It was just the fourth home loss in 33 games for Utah, which is currently sixth in the tight West.

With little to play for Seattle stands 0-10 SU in its last 10, going 3-6-1 ATS during that span. The Sonics were eliminated from playoff contention weeks ago and are a paltry 6-30 SU on he road. Seattle is also playing its second game in two nights, having lost 130-105 to the Lakers on Friday.

The Jazz were idle Friday and are 22-11 ATS at home. No question giving 19 is risky, but Utah figures to bounce back strong off the Laker loss and is fully capable of at least a 20-point lowout victory. JAZZ.
