The Jazz are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 0 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Lakers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 5-0 in Lakers last 5 overall. The Jazz are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Utah Jazz are on the end of a back to back, but they're starting to get healthy, and they win on the road by an average of 7.9 points. The Los Angeles Lakers are losing their last five games by an average of six points, and they get rocked in most games against respectable teams. The Lakers aren't a good team, and it's about time these lines start reflecting their incompetence. I'm not backing the Lakers in these spots until they improve. Give me the Jazz and the reasonable line.
