Utah Jazz DFS Spin

Rudy Gobert amassed 23 rebounds during Friday's win vs. the Pacers, adding 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting with four blocks, one assist and one steal in 38 minutes. Gobert shot 1-of-4 from the line and he's just 6-of-15 in his past four games (40.0%), but of course that's why he didn't cost managers a top-10 draft pick. He can win you three categories by himself and is surging at an ideal time for fantasy GMs, pairing elite per-game production with a perfect attendance record in the 2020-21 season.

Los Angeles lakers DFS Spin

Andre Drummond (bruised right big toe) is listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. Utah. The Lakers' injury report has been suspect for the past few years and Drummond was also 'probable' prior to sitting out on Thursday. We're not putting a ton of stock in his status, therefore, and fantasy managers should check for an update after Saturday's shootaround.

Jazz vs. Lakers Betting Prediction

The Jazz are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six meetings with the Lakers and are 1-4 against the number in their last five meetings at STAPLES Center. They’re also 1-5 against the number in their last six road games and have failed to cover in seven of their last eight road games when facing an opponent with a winning home record. On the other side, the Lakers have covered in five of their last seven games when their opponent scored 100 points or more in its previous game and are a perfect 5-0 against the number in their last five games when coming off a loss.
