Los Angeles Lakers Betting

The Los Angeles Lakers are very much in trouble right now as they face a tough schedule before ending the season. They are hanging at the bottom of the play-in tournament with the San Antonio Spurs just half a game behind them. This team will still be playing without LeBron James and Anthony Davis is still not available. Russell Westbrook is expected to perform at his MVP level to lift the Lakers in their next few games. Malik Monk and Carmelo Anthony also have to pick it up to give Westbrook some help. Dwight Howard has also been called to step up as the team’s starting center.

Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz are on a huge slump and their five-game losing streak pulled them down to 6th overall in the NBA Western Conference standings. This team still owns a 2.5 game lead over the Minnesota Timberwolves but they are still not out of the woods. The team has been juggling injuries and has never been complete since the start of the year. There are talks that if this team doesn’t go far, management will blow them up by the end of the season. Nonetheless, Rudy Gobert is in a day-to-day situation while Bojan Bogdanovic is still injured. The Jazz relies heavily on their guards such as Donovan Mitchell, Jordan Clarkson and Mike Conley Jr.
