Jack's Free Pick Monday!
Utah vs. New Orleans,
02/13/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 80 - 86
Point Spread: -4/-110 Utah
The New Orleans Hornets are neck-and-neck with the Charlotte Bobcats for the worst team in the league. They should be a much bigger underdog tonight against the Utah Jazz, who remain one of the most underrated teams in the NBA.
Utah is 14-12 on the season. They picked up a signature road win last night in Memphis by a final of 98-88, and I look for them to come into this game against the Hornets with a lot of confidence. The Jazz are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 meetings with New Orleans.
The Hornets are just 4-23 on the season and things aren't getting any better. New Orleans is 0-8 SU & 0-8 ATS in their last eight games overall, getting beat by double-digits five times. They are missing several key players right now, including PG Jarrett Jack, SG Eric Gordon, F Carl Landry, F Jason Smith and C Chris Kaman. They simply cannot be competitive with all of these injuries.
The Jazz are 50-26 ATS in their last 76 versus terrible 3 point shooting teams -making
