NBA Betting Trends


The Jazz are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 Friday games. Utah is 11-5 ATS in its last 16 road games.

Los Angeles

The Lakers are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games. Los Angeles is 2-6 ATS in its last eight Friday games.


Los Angeles looked shaky at times offensively in its opener, particularly in the pick-and-roll. When it ran post plays through Davis, there was a lot more effectiveness. My issue there is that Rudy Gobert is maybe the best defensive center in the league and can at least make those types of plays more difficult. With the Jazz able to lock down defensively and LA still finding its way on the offensive end, I like the under in this one.
