Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Lakers Betting Odds on NBA (02-16-2022)

Following its worst stretch of the season, the Jazz is regaining betting on NBA Games value. Donovan Mitchell’s return to the lineup is a key reason why. Mitchell is the marquee man of the Jazz and the trigger man to the Utah offense. Specifically, Mitchell has had to step up with leading rebounder Rudy Gobert out of the lineup. Finally, are Anthony Davis and LeBron James back in the Lakers lineup. And their return has sparked improved profitability for Los Angeles. Concurrently Davis and James are needed by a Laker team stuck in the Western Conference play-in spot.
