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 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

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.
