This is the final regular season game for both teams. It is a back-to-back basketball betting situation for the Jazz as they were home against the Clippers last night.
Bet on basketball trends tell us that the Lakers have won 7 of the last 10 games against Utah. They are also 6-3-1 against the basketball odds in those games for gamblers who bet on basketball. At Los Angeles, the Lakers have won the last eight games against Utah and they are 6-1-1 against the basketball odds. The teams have split their two meetings this season with each team winning at home as bet on basketball results show.
The Jazz have had an offense this season that ranks in the Top 10 in the league. The problem for Utah in terms of bet on basketball numbers is a below average defense. The Jazz have also struggled on the road as bet on basketball stats indicate. Utah has the potential with Deron Williams, Carlos Boozer and others to cover the bet on basketball pointspread but far too often they play no defense on the road. Utah has struggled on the road nearly every season in terms of basketball betting and that is the case again this year.
The Lakers have an offense that should be able to put up a lot of points against the Jazz. Los Angeles has been in the Top 3 in offense for much of the season as bet on basketball stats show. The Lakers have Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol and a strong supporting cast. The Lakers also don’t play the best of defense which is why they can struggle versus the bet on basketball odds. The Lakers definitely can have problems covering big basketball betting numbers at home and that has been a problem in recent seasons because the Lakers are such a public team.
The last five games between the two teams have gone over the bet on basketball total and that could easily happen again with these two offenses. Four of the last five at Los Angeles have gone over the basketball betting total.
