Los Angeles Lakers To WIN (+122) @ Utah Jazz
For my last bet of the day, I like the Los Angeles Lakers on the money line against a struggling Utah Jazz club. First off, the fact that you can get the Lakers as an underdog on the money line now-a-days is shocking. Yes, they are playing on the road against a Jazz team that is 8-1 at home, but this Utah squad has endured a beating during their most recent road trip. They have lost four of their last five overall, while the Lakers have won 11 of their last 12 and look the part of the best team in the league. LeBron James and Anthony Davis have found instant chemistry, as L.A. sits atop the Western Conference standings.
Yes, I like L.A. on the money line, but if you’d like to take the three points that they’re being given, that would also be a wise choice. In fact, the Lakers are 5-3 ATS versus the Jazz over the last three seasons. Utah has been terrible at covering the spread in 2019. They rank third from the bottom ATS at 8-13, while the Lakers are near the top of the league at 12-9 ATS. The Lakers are also 2-0 ATS as an underdog this season.
