The Los Angeles Lakers hit the road and travel to Utah to take on the Jazz at the Ball Arena on Wednesday night. These teams met 3 times last season and the Jazz led 2-1.
The Jazz get here with a 5-2 record overall and 3-0 at home so far this season ranking 2nd in the Northwest Division. In the narrow victory over the Grizzlies last Saturday, Lauri Markkanen and Kelly Olynyk each scored 23 points, including a pair of late 3-pointers. Jordan Clarkson scored 21 points and Colin Sexton had 19 points in his first start of the season. The Jazz went 19-for-44 from beyond the arc.

Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have had a disapointing start of the season as they have lost their first 3 games. In their last game they lost 106-104 against the Blazers where James had 31 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, while Davis finished with 22 points, 10 rebounds and six blocked shots for the Lakers.
Last season, LeBron James averaged 30.3 points while shooting 35.9% from beyond the arc. Westbrook was shooting 47.9% and averaging 17.8 points over the last 10 games for Los Angeles.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Utah's last 12 games.
Utah are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.
Utah are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against LA Lakers.
The total has gone OVER in 11 of LA Lakers' last 15 games against Utah.
LA Lakers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of LA Lakers' last 5 games.
LA Lakers are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games.
The Jazz have been great offensively and are scoring an average of 114 points per game but they have struggled on the road against the Lakers . The Lakers have been awful offensively averaging only 102 points per game and haven't win a game yet and what could be one of the worst starts of the season ever. Honestly I don't get this spread, the Jazz have been by far a better team so far which is confusing so I think the best play is the over. The over has cashed in 11 of the last 15 head to head games.
PICK: Over 229.5 (-110)
