The Lakers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Jazz are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Lakers last 4 overall. The over is 11-3-1 in Jazz last 15 overall. The Lakers are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings.

The Los Angeles Lakers are playing some of their best ball of the season, and they need to keep winning if they're going to stay out of the play-in tournament. The Utah Jazz look like a team that's run out of gas, and that includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 4 points. Two teams heading in different directions down the stretch. I'll lay the chalk with the Lakers on the road.
