Los Angeles Lakers vs. Utah Jazz

Where: Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City, UT

When: Friday, January 11, 10:00 PM. ET.

The Utah Jazz will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

Lakers Going For Third Consecutive Win

The Lakers have managed to put together a two-game winning streak since they snapped their three-game losing streak and will be trying to make it three wins in a row when they face the Jazz on Friday night.

Los Angeles has played well offensively, averaging 112.2 points per game, which is 11th in the league. The team is shooting 47 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range.

LeBron James leads the Lakers with 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 7.1 assists per game. He has missed the Lakers’ last eight games with a groin injury and is expected to miss this game as well.

Kyle Kuzma has stepped up in James’ absence and scored a career-high 41 points in their last game against the Detroit Pistons. Kuzma is averaging 18.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game, while Brandon Ingram is averaging 16.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.

The Lakers have struggled defensively, giving up 110.8 points per game, which is 17th in the league. They played well in their last two games, holding their opponents to 98.5 points per game and will need a similar effort to beat the Jazz on Friday.

Jazz Looking For Fourth Win In Five Games

The Jazz have played well over the past week, winning three of their last four games. They will be going for their second win in a row and fourth win in their last five contests when they face the Lakers on Friday.

Utah has struggled offensively, averaging 107.8 points per game. The team is shooting 46 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range.

Donovan Mitchell leads the team with 20.7 points and 3.5 assists per game. Rudy Gobert is averaging 14.7 points and 12.3 rebounds per game, while Ricky Rubio is averaging 12.8 points and 6.2 assists per game. Rubio is expected to miss the game due to a hamstring injury.

The Jazz are one of the best defensive teams in the league, holding opponents to 105.5 points per game. They have played well in their last four games, giving up 100.7 points per game and will need to keep it up to beat the Lakers on Friday night.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Jazz have played well against the spread, winning seven of their last nine home games and five of their last six home games against teams with losing road records. The Lakers have struggled against the spread, losing six of their last nine games following a straight up win and 11 of their last 16 games following an ATS win.

Prediction: Utah Jazz

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone under in four of Los Angeles’ last five road games and in the team’s last four games against Northwest Division opponents. The total has also gone under in Utah’s last five games against Western Conference teams and in seven of the team’s last eight home games.

Prediction: Under

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Jazz will win the first half of this game because they have outplayed the Lakers in the first half of their last three games. The two teams are averaging similar offensive numbers, but the Jazz have been better on the defensive end, holding opponents to 58 points per game while the Lakers are giving up 59.3 points per game.

Prediction: Utah Jazz

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Lakers and Jazz are averaging 103.3 combined points per game in the first half of their last three games and will fall short of the first half total in this game if they maintain their current offensive pace.

Prediction: Under

I am very passionate about sports, so I kind of feel bad that I get paid to do this. As someone who minored in Mathematics, I have a lot of faith in numbers, and make my picks based on stats and not emotions. I've been successfully picking winners for quite some time, so stick with me if you want to get paid.
