In a matchup of two early season underachievers, the Utah Jazz (1-3) host the Los Angeles Lakers (1-3) Wednesday night at 9:00 ET. NBA odds are available at Bovada sportsbook.
The Lakers will attempt to build some momentum after winning their first game of the year Sunday night against the Pistons. Three of their first four games of the year have been at the Staples Center. They have dropped their only road game of the year so far against Portland. Overall, they are 1-3 ATS and 0-1 ATS on the road.
The Jazz, by contrast, finished up a three game road trip after opening up with a win against Dallas at home. Utah went 0-3 SU and ATS during their trip that took them to New Orleans, San Antonio, and Memphis. The Jazz struggled to generate offense over this time, hitting the century mark only once.
The Jazz have always played the Lakers tough, even when the Lakers were at the top of their game. However, the Lakers aren’t playing their best ball, which is why Utah, who is 2-7 ATS in their past nine games dating back to last year, is currently modest home favorite. Look for the game to be close, so take the Lakers and the points at online sportsbook usa.
