The Los Angeles Lakers aren't a team you can trust most nights, especially against above average teams. The Lakers have underachieved all year, and they lose in the underdog role by an average of 7.5 points. The Lakers are 12-18 against the spread at home. I have to side with the red-hot Jazz here.
