Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers 4/9/2023 Free Picks, Odds and Analysis

In a Sunday afternoon matchup, the Utah Jazz will take on the Los Angeles Lakers at Arena. The Jazz have been struggling recently, losing their last four games against the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Lakers, and Oklahoma City Thunder. In fact, they have only won one of their last nine meetings overall, making it a challenging period for the team. They are currently trying to break their losing streak and have a chance to do so against the Denver Nuggets on Saturday.

Utah’s absence of key players, such as Jordan Clarkson, Lauri Markkanen, Walker Kessler, and Collin Sexton, has been a significant challenge for the team. However, with their season coming to an end, the Jazz can focus on giving some of their bench players more playing time. Despite their recent struggles, the Jazz are still a solid team, and they have a chance to bounce back against the Lakers. The Lakers have been a mixed bag this season and are currently ranked eighth in the Western Conference. The Jazz will have to play well to win this game, but they have the talent to do so. Tip-off is at 3:30 PM ET.

  • The Utah Jazz is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games on the road.
  • The Jazz is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games on the road against LA Lakers.
  • Utah is 3-9 SU in their last 12 games against an opponent in the Western Conference.

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers 4/9/2023 Free Picks, Odds and Analysis

The Los Angeles Lakers have been on a roll lately, winning five of their last six games and bouncing back from a tough loss to their city rivals, the LA Clippers. Their latest victory came against the Phoenix Suns, whom they defeated 121-107 at home on Friday. The Lakers were particularly impressive in the second half of the game, limiting the Suns to just 45 points.

The Lakers’ success in the game can be attributed to their excellent ball movement and three-point shooting. They had a 25:16 assist-to-turnover ratio and made 18 of their 36 attempts from beyond the arc. Austin Reaves had a standout performance with 22 points and 5 assists, while D’Angelo Russell contributed 24 points. Anthony Davis also had a strong game with 14 points, 21 rebounds, four assists, and three blocks. LeBron James struggled with his shooting, going 6-for-19 from the floor, but still managed to finish with 16 points and six assists. The Lakers are currently tied with the New Orleans Pelicans for the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference, but they hold the tiebreaker advantage. If they can defeat the Utah Jazz in their next game, they will secure the seventh spot and avoid the play-in tournament.

  • The total went OVER in 4 of the LA Lakers’ last 5 battles with the Jazz.
  • The Los Angeles Lakers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home.
  • The  Lakers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games at home against Utah.

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA pick for this game is the Los Angeles Lakers. Keep an eye on the injury list since Utah should once again be severely shorthanded. The Jazz will face a difficult challenge in keeping the intensely motivated Lakers at bay without their best players. As they should hammer the Jazz, take Los Angeles to cover or go with the Lakers team total. Utah’s defense was terrible the entire season. The Jazz force just 12.6 turnovers per game while allowing 116.8 points per 100 possessions (24th in the NBA) and 47.3% field goal shooting (15th) (28th). Given that Walker Kessler (concussion) won’t play, Anthony Davis will rule the paint. The Los Angeles Lakers will win to a predicted score of 125-110.
