Timberwolves vs. Jazz Game Overview
Utah has the worst SU record in the West at 14-28, but it has actually played better over the past few weeks with a 5-4 mark in its last nine outings. The Jazz covered in six of those games to improve to 19-21-2 ATS overall. They are 5-1 SU in their last six home games with a 4-2 record ATS. The total has gone OVER in four of those six games. Utah is 8-10-1 ATS at home this season and the total has stayed UNDER in 10 of the 19 games.
The Jazz are ranked 27th in the league in scoring with 94.4 points a game and they are shooting 44 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from 3-point range. They are also ranked near the bottom of the NBA in rebounds with an average of 41.3. One thing Utah has done a good job at doing is spreading the ball around with seven different players averaging at least nine points a game. Gordon Hayward is at the top of that list with 17.1 points with Trey Burke and Derrick Favors each averaging over 13 points a game. Keep an eye on Hayward's playing status for Tuesday's game as he is currently listed as day-to-day with a hip injury that has kept out of the lineup for the past five games. There is a good chance he plays, but either way he will have a direct impact on the actual betting odds for this contest.

Betting Trends
The Timberwolves are 7-17 ATS in their last 24 games within the Northwest Division and 11-26 ATS in their last 37 games playing on two days' rest. The total has stayed UNDER in five of their last seven games following a SU win.
The Jazz are 3-0-1 in their last four games following a SU loss and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games played on a Tuesday. The total has gone OVER in 11 of their last 15 games against a team with a SU losing record.
Head-to-head in this division matchup, the favorite is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings and the total has gone OVER in nine of the last 11 games played in Utah. Minnesota has failed to cover in six of its last seven trips to Utah.

Total Line Pick
The home team in this matchup has won eight of the last 10 meetings SU so expect that trend follows suit this Tuesday night. I like Utah's chances to even things up with a SU win as long as Hayward is back in the lineup.
