Preview

Utah Jazz will meet Los Angeles Lakers Wednesday at the Crypto.com Arena, They had one game already this season that ended in a Lakers win (101-95) in the same arena.

Los Angeles Lakers have been playing some of their worst basketball as they are 2-7 straight up last 9 games this season losing to bad teams without their stars like the Blazers and Pacers. They play better at home though with 17-13 straight up record.The Over is 4-1 in last 5 games for the Lakers although the Under is 9-2 in games vs teams in the Northwest division.

Utah Jazz have been hot lately after getting Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert back they are finally healthy and ready to roll as they have won their last 6 games including wins Vs the Nuggets, Nets, Knicks and Warriors. Utah is also 5-0 ATS last 5 games and the Under has hit 5 of their last 6 games this season.

Kendrick Nunn, Carmelo Anthony and Avery Bradley are out while LeBron James and Anthony Davis are Questionable for the Lakers.

Rudy gay is the only player out for Utah Jazz

Utah Jazz will be seeking revenge here, In a great form, Lakers in a terrible form, and they rarely beat Elite teams this season. So all of these reason are why the Jazz should be winning this one easily here and continue their winning streak. I like Utah Jazz to cover

Head to Head

Last 10 games have been heading towards the Lakers more as they are 6-4 straight up and 7-3 ATS Vs the Jazz, O/U is 4-6 with the Jazz scoring an average of 106.2 points and the Lakers average of 105.4 points. This Lakers team isn't the same like the last year or the year before as they are much worse now with a bad performance in almost every game they play this season. I like Utah to get some revenge here.

Prediction

Utah Jazz have been rolling recently winning 6 games straight and with getting Rudy Gobert back in the last game I like the Jazz to dominate this bad Lakers team that despite their need for something to change, they didn't make any move in the trade and they have been bad Vs the Elite teams this season. Give me the Jazz here to win and cover.

Pick: Utah Jazz -4.5 (-110)
