Lakers Spread Pick to Cover vs Jazz

How the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz acted at the trade deadline indicates how each franchise will view the rest of the season. That is going to have a direct effect on this game and is worth noting when looking at NBA picks ATS.

In their last game, the Lakers faced the Detroit Pistons on the first of a back-to-back, winning 125-111. The Jazz faced the Golden State Warriors last time out and were thoroughly outmatched, losing 129-107.

Lakers vs Jazz ATS Pick: Lakers +5½ -110

Injuries to the Lakers have been an issue all season. It seems like every game that the two best players on the team, LeBron James and Anthony Davis, are game-time decisions. That will almost always affect NBA predictions, even though they usually play.

Despite that consistent injury report that already has many names on it, the Lakers decided to stand pat at the trade deadline. Their only significant move was signing Spencer Dinwiddie after he was bought out.

It seems like the Lakers are banking on what this team has been. Last season, as an eighth seed that played in the play-in tournament, they made the Western Conference finals. Plus, when it mattered during the In-Season Tournament, the Lakers stepped up behind James and Davis.

On the other hand, we have the Jazz. They used the trade deadline to not directly headline NBA news, but to trade away talent for more draft capital. Simone Fontecchio, Kelly Olynyk and Ochai Agbaji were minor players within the Jazz rotation, but it seems to have affected the team. Utah has lost by 14 and 22 points in the two games since the trade deadline.

Over/Under Pick: Over 240½ -110

The Lakers’ offense has picked up recently, which has helped them hit the over for NBA lines in seven of the last 10 games. Furthermore, the Jazz doesn’t have one of the most elite defenses in the league.

In the two games this season between the Lakers and Jazz, Los Angeles has scored 131 points in a win and 125 during a loss on the road. That should not change in this game, especially after the Jazz have struggled on defense in the last two games.

Outside of the last two games, the Jazz offense is usually on top of things. They average 117.6 points, which is ranked 12th in the league, and should be able to find success against the Lakers.

 

Player Prop Pick: D’Angelo Russell Over 20.5 points (-127)

In the early part of the season, D’Angelo Russell and the Los Angeles point guard position seemed to be an issue. At the trade deadline, Russell was the main piece floating around in trade rumors to be on the move to help bring in another star player. However, since the start of 2024, Russell has been playing extremely well. He averages 22.4 points, shooting 46.3% from the field and 45% from three while putting up 6.1 assists. The addition of Dinwiddie could shift his minutes, but they both played over 30 minutes in the win over the Pistons.

Questions Of The Day

 

Will the Lakers stars face the Jazz?

Are the Jazz still trying to make the play-in tournament?


Given what we can assume from the Jazz’s dealings at the trade deadline, they are looking toward the future and building a roster around that, compared to trying to win now.
