Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Lakers Tips

The Utah Jazz will travel to Los Angeles to play their first away game in 11 days, going up against a beaten-up Lakers team.

The Jazz have not been good on the road this season winning just one away game in 2023, however, they travel west at the right time with both Anthony Davis and Lebron James under injury clouds heading into Wednesday’s game. Obviously, their inclusion will need to be monitored up until game time, but either way, the niggling injuries will benefit the Jazz.

The line is out to 8 points with the Lakers the obvious favourites. If James and/or Davis don’t play this line will shrink drastically. If both of the Lakers stars do play, they will be wrapped in cotton wool and I see the Jazz covering anyway.

10 of 13 Jazz games have gone Over the game total, whereas 9 of 14 Lakers games have gone Under the total. With Lebron and Davis not one hundred percent I cannot see the Lakers putting up the numbers that other teams have on the Jazz so I will be leaning towards the Under here. 

The Lakers are not a particularly good rebounding team and with the injuries they have I expect the highest-ranked rebound team in the NBA, the Utah Jazz, to hit their overs in this category. Lauri Markkanen has the best value to record Over 8.5 rebounds in this game. 

  • Utah has covered the line in their last 4 games.
  • The last 3 Lakers games have gone Under the game total.
  • Utah averages 47.6 rebounds per game, ranked 1st in the NBA
  • Lauri Markkanen averages 8.8 rebounds per game.

Utah Jazz Form

The Jazz come into their matchup against the Lakers after back-to-back losses to the Phoenix Suns over the course of last weekend, losing both games by 3 points, and game totals averaging 268 points.

It has been the case over the start of the season with the Jazz leaking too many points to their opposition, averaging 122 points against per game, ranking them 26th in the league.

The Jazz have been the best rebounding team in the NBA so far this season, ranked first in offensive rebounds and third in defensive rebounds.

Utah Jazz Team News

No recent injury news for Utah.

Los Angeles Lakers Form

The Lakers have won 5 of their last 6 games, losing only to the Sacramento Kings in that stretch.

Los Angeles' latest win was a one-point victory over the Houston Rockets 105-104, with Lebron James tallying his season high of 37 points., beating the previous points total of 35 that he set in the previous game against Portland.

Los Angeles Lakers Team News

Lebron James is questionable with a calf issue.

Anthony Davis is probable for the game against Utah, tending with spasms.


The Jazz will cover going up against a wounded Lakers lineup.

The injuries will keep this game from going over the large game total of 236 points.

Lauri Markkanen will be big under the rim and will record Over 8.5 rebounds for the Jazz.
