The Utah Jazz blew the New Orleans Pelicans out in the last game, but the Pels won’t have to wait long to get their revenge, as the two will face off again tonight in Salt Lake City.

New Orleans played their worst game of the season in the loss to Utah, which wasn’t completely surprising considering that they were due for a dud and were coming off two big wins over the Suns.

The loss showed the Pels aren’t perfect, and also showed how much they need to get Brandon Ingram back, as his steady scoring hand was missed against Utah in the last one with pretty much everyone other than Zion Williamson struggling.

The Pels will be shorthanded once again tonight, so will they get their act together and finally beat the dreaded Jazz?

Here is all of the information you will need.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Utah Jazz: Odds and Spread, Over/Under

The spread has just moved to -2 for New Orleans according to Fanduel, which is a half point more than the last matchup. The money lines have shifted to -130 for New Orleans and +110 for Utah.

The over/under is high again at 231.5, as the books don’t think the Pelicans are going to have two off nights in a row. I tend to agreed, as the Pels shot just 14 percent from long range in the last one, which shouldn’t happen again, so I like the over in this one.

Pelicans injury report: Brandon Ingram injury update

The Pels got more bad news on the injury front, as Brandon Ingram reportedly suffered a minor setback and will be out at least another week, which means he is going to miss a minimum of four more games.

Jose Alvarado will also be out tonight with a sore rib, so the Pels are going to need some guys to step up.

The Jazz are still missing Simone Fontecchio and Collin Sexton.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Utah Jazz: Prediction

The Jazz have had the Pelicans number so far this season, but the Pels have rarely played two bad games in a row, so I like them to bounce back tonight and salvage the split on the road in Utah.

Yes, New Orleans got blown out in the last one, but just about everyone had an off night shooting and I don’t expect it to happen again.

New Orleans 120, Utah 112
