Jazz at Lakers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Jazz 112, Lakers 104
Money line (ML)
With Gobert back in the lineup and perhaps Favors, the Jazz will be able to defend Drummond better this time around.
Utah has only lost consecutive games twice this season and the Lakers have alternated winning and losing games in the last 10 games. With a win Saturday, they are due a loss. The Jazz will bounce back. It is chalky, but take the JAZZ -250, although you can get more bang for your buck betting the spread.
Against the spread (ATS)
The Jazz have failed to cover the spread in their last four games and are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games. The Lakers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games.
Utah has been solid this season against the spread, going 33-24 overall. The Lakers are only 15-19 ATS after a win this season. Take the JAZZ -6.5 (-110).
The Lakers still have the league's lowest Over percentage this season at 38.6% but their games have gone Over in six of their last seven games. Utah is 5-4 O/U in its last nine games. Take OVER 214.5 POINTS (-110).
