Basketball Betting – Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Basketball betting odds on Friday have the Los Angeles Lakers favored at home against the Utah Jazz.

Los Angeles has won 7 of the last 10 games against Utah and they are 6-3-1 against the pro basketball betting number.

Basketball betting trends show that the Lakers have won the last five home games against the Jazz, going 4-1 against the pro basketball betting number. Basketball betting information shows that the teams have not met since last year’s playoffs when the Lakers took out the Jazz in six games. The Lakers covered the basketball odds in two of their three home games in that series, winning all three outright. The last three games in that series all went over the basketball betting total.

Basketball betting stats tell us that the Lakers have been the most dominant team in the Western Conference this season. They even ended the Celtics 19 game winning streak just over a week ago. Kobe Bryant is among the league’s leaders in scoring as pro basketball betting stats show. Basketball betting info tells us that Andrew Bynum is healthy and a force in the middle while Derek Fisher, Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol all look better than they did a year ago. Los Angles has led the NBA in scoring for most of the season as basketball betting stats show. Their defense has been somewhat suspect in basketball betting but so far it has not hurt them a great deal. Los Angeles is such a huge public team in basketball betting that despite having a great straight up record they have a losing record against the basketball odds.

Utah has dealt with injuries all season, yet they are still a factor in basketball betting in the Western Conference. The Jazz missed guard Deron Williams early in the season and missed Carlos Boozer for quite some time as well. Utah still finds ways to win though and when they finally get healthy they could be a serious force in the Western Conference. Utah is just outside the Top 10 in the league in both offense and defense as pro basketball betting stats indicate.
