The Los Angeles Lakers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 112.2 points on 48.2 percent shooting and allowing 104 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Anthony Davis is averaging 26.1 points and 9.3 rebounds while LeBron James is averaging 25.7 points and 10.9 assists. Kyle Kuzma is the third double-digit scorer and Avery Bradley is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 33.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.8 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Lakers have won their last nine road games.

The Utah Jazz need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 106.1 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 105.1 points on 43.3 percent shooting.

The Lakers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Jazz are 15-7 ATS in their last 22 Wednesday games. The Lakers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Jazz last 7 overall. The under is 5-0 in Lakers last 5 overall.

The Utah Jazz are better than this recent stretch indicates, but I'm not sure how they're favored here given their recent struggles and the fact they'll be without Mike Conley. The Los Angeles Lakers are on the end of a back to back, but they're still a team that's won 10 of their last 11 and have won nine straight games on the road. The Utah Jazz are losing their last five games by an average of 8.6 points and they're 2-4 ATS when favored by less than seven points. This line is confusing. Give me the free bucket with the Lakers.
