Utah Jazz Betting
The Utah Jazz are now on a six-game winning streak and they are getting Rudy Gobert back from injury. This is one of the healthiest that the Jazz have been this season and were able to hold on to the fourth-best record in the NBA Western Conference. They still have a lot of ground to thread as the Memphis Grizzlies are above them leading by four games. The last team that they defeated were the Houston Rockets, 135-101, and Donovan Mitchell led the team with 30 points. Gobert in his return had 14 points and seven rebounds but it was Bojan Bogdanovic who helped out in the scoring department with 22 points.

Los Angeles Lakers Betting
It has been a very disappointing performance for the Los Angeles Lakers for the past few weeks despite getting Anthony Davis back from an injury. The team has only won twice in the last nine games and have slipped to 5 games below the .500 with their record now at 26-31. LeBron James has been playing great being the second-leading scorer in the entire NBA but the team has been falling short. Russell Westbrook has been blamed for the Lakers’ woes but some also point at Frank Vogel. With no major changes during the trade deadline, this is going to be a tough finish for the Lakers this season.
Players to Watch: L. James SF 40 GP 40 GS 36.7 MIN 29 PTS 1.1 OR 6.8 DR 7.9 REB 6.5 AST 1.6 STL 1 BLK 3.2 TO 2.3 PF 2 AST/TO 26.71 PER
