The Utah Jazz are averaging 115.6 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 112.4 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Lauri Markkanen is averaging 21.7 points and 9 rebounds, while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17.1 points and 4.6 rebounds.

The Jazz are 7-18 ATS in their last 25 road games and 7-21-1 ATS in their last 29 Friday games. The Lakers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Friday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Jazz last 6 overall. The over is 12-4 in Lakers last 16 games playing on 1 days rest. The Jazz are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

The Los Angeles Lakers look like they've found something with their roster rotation and Westbrook coming off the bench, and they've had a pep in their step these last two games. The Lakers need to take advantage of games like this at home if they're going to make anything of this season. While the Utah Jazz have been kind to us and continue to provide value in the underdog role, I'd need another bucket or two to consider them here. Give me the Lakers and the soft line.
