4* NBA ATS ABSOLUTE SMASH
Washington vs. Utah,
02/17/2012 21:00 EDT,
Score: 100 - 114
Point Spread: -10/-105 Utah
This may seem like a lot of points to lay on the Jazz, but I'm confident they will win this game by at least 10 points. The Wizards are a miserable 3-11 on the road this season, I find it hard to believe that Washington will be focused against a Utah team that is just 2-7 over their last nine games. Utah is known for being a tough place to play, and the Wizards don't play here often so you can't expect them to handle it all that well. Making things even harder for Washington is the fact that this is their 4th road game in the last six days.
That fact that Utah is struggling only makes them a stronger play in this spot. The Jazz desperately need a win tonight, and if they come out ready to play they should win this game easily.
The Wizards pulled off a couple of road wins over Detroit and Portland to start their road trip, but these later games in the trip are the ones that teams struggle to play at a high level. The Wizards are 0-7 ATS after covering 2 of their last 3 against the spread this season and just 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. BET THE JAZZ!
