The Jazz are 11.5-point home favorites to beat the Lakers, who opened as 10.5-point underdog before the line climbed a full point. As for the total, it hit the board at 209 but was bet down to 208.


As of this writing, 57% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Jazz to cover the point spread tonight. Meanwhile, 53% of the betting tickets are on the under.


The Lakers will be without Isaiah Thomas (hip, out for the year) and Brandon Ingram (concussion), could be without Brook Lopez (back, questionable), and are likely to be without Lonzo Ball (knee, doubtful). On the other side, the Jazz aren’t missing any starters but Raul Neto will miss the game with a wrist injury.


The under has been a great bet in this series, cashing in four of the last five meetings and going 3-1-1 in the last five meetings in Utah. The under is also 5-1 in the Lakers’ last six games coming off a loss, is 5-1 in their last six conference games, and is 4-1 in their last five games when facing an opponent with a winning record. On the other side, the under is 9-3 in the Jazz’ last 12 home games, is 11-4 in their last 15 games coming off a win, and has cashed in 15 of their last 18 games played on Tuesday. With the Lakers banged up and the Jazz a sound defensive team, I see this game falling under the total.
