Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers 10/25/2019 Betting Odds
Utah Jazz Betting
The Jazz will come into the Staples Center with 1-0 slate, but their 100-95 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder exposed some chemistry issues on their backcourt. Donovan Mitchell exploded for 32 points on 14-of-11 shooting with 12 rebounds and 3 assists while Bojan Bogdanovic added 16 markers for the Jazz, who just shot 6-of-24 from three-point territory. Aside from cold shooting from deep, Utah hardly felt Mike Conley Jr.’s presence throughout the game. Conley, the Jazz’ prized acquisition in an offseason trade with Grizzlies, finished the game with 5 points on a disappointing 1-of-16 shooting with 5 dimes.
Players to Watch Donovan Mitchell (32.0 PPG, 12.0 RPG, and 3.0 APG), Bojan Bogdanovic (16.0 PPG and 3.0 RPG) and Rudy Gobert (7.0 PPG and 14.0 RPG).
Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Lakers got a serious wake-up call on Tuesday as Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers hounded them to 43.5 FG%. LeBron James still delivered gaudy numbers with 18 points on 7-of-19 shooting with 10 rebounds and 8 assists, but it was evident that his chemistry with Anthony Davis is still in progress. Davis recorded 25 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists in his Lakers’ debut. Danny Green drained 7 of the Lakers’ 13 three-point conversions to finish with a team-high 28 points.
Players to Watch: Anthony Davis (25.0 PPG, 9.0 RPG, and 5.0 APG), LeBron James (10.0 PPG, 10.0 RPG and 8.0 RPG) and Danny Green (28.0 PPG, 7-of-9 3-point FG)

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers Betting Picks
The visiting Jazz has been dominant in the last 10 head-to-head meetings with the Lakers, sporting an 8-2 record. Across that span, Utah averaged 105 PPG and held down L.A to just 97.5 PPG.
Moneyline: Despite their losing record vs. the Jazz, the Lakers are -3.5 favorites coming into the game. The presence of Davis and a healthy LeBron plays a big factor in why online betting sites put Los Angeles as the favorite.
ATS: The Lakers might be the Moneyline favorite here, but the Jazz is going to make things tougher for the home team. Utah has a 4-6 ATS record in 10 head-to-head meetings with Los Angeles. This Jazz team is very much capable of beating the Lakers, but it will all depend on what kind of output they’ll be getting from Conley Jr.
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 222.5 points. The Lakers are going to be really good offensively with LeBron and Davis leading charge. They can definitely score 100 points in their sleep and there’s no defense out there that can hold them below the century mark. The Jazz is also a prolific offensive team with plenty of gunners on the roster. Having said all of that, expect this game to exceed the O/U Total.
Score Prediction: 120-115 Jazz
