    The Golden State Warriors have lost five games in a row by an average of 18.4 points, which can't be ignored when making your NBA against-the-spread picks Tuesday night, as they prepare to take on the Utah Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena.

    Sports bettors will find that the Warriors are 3.5-point road underdogs in the pro basketball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total stands at 203 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this Western Conference matchup from a betting perspective, while offering a prediction along the way.
