Jazz vs. Lakers NBA Prediction
The second game of Monday night’s NBA double header on ESPN takes place in L.A. where the banged-up Lakers will host the Jazz at 10:00 p.m. ET. Given the Jazz’ issues in this series, are the Lakers a solid play as a home dog?
517 Utah Jazz (-6.5) at 518 Los Angeles Lakers (+6.5); o/u 214.5
10:00 p.m. ET, Monday, April 19, 2021
Venue: STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, CA
Utah Jazz DFS Spin
Rudy Gobert (right knee contusion) is being listed as probable for Monday’s matchup with the Lakers. Gobert skipped Saturday's game vs. the Lakers with a minor knee issue, but he'll be back in action tomorrow night, which will return Ersan Ilyasova (hamstring, questionable) to the second unit.
Los Angeles Lakers DFS Spin
Anthony Davis (right calf strain) won't play on Monday against the Jazz. Davis was never likely to return on Monday, with Thursday's game against the Mavericks as the target date. Markieff Morris, Andre Drummond, and Montrezl Harrell should continue to fill in the big man role until he's ready to play.
Jazz vs. Lakers Betting Prediction
The Jazz are just 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Lakers and are 0-4 against the number in their last four road games versus Los Angeles. The Jazz are also winless against the spread in their last four games overall, are 1-5 against the number in their last six games as a road favorite and have failed to cover in five of their last seven games as a favorite.
NBA BETTING PREDICTION: LOS ANGELES LAKERS +6.5
