The Utah Jazz will meet with the Los Angeles Lakers in NBA action in Crypty.com Arena Los Angeles, CA, on Monday, January 17, 2022, at 10:30 PM (EST). The Utah Jazz is in the midst of their most difficult stretch of the season, having dropped their fourth consecutive match.

 

The Jazz was defeated by the Cleveland Cavaliers after returning home from a five-game road trip during which they suffered three straight losses. The Jazz was unable to cover a -5 spread for the fourth time in as many games. The Jazz is 19-23 against the spread.

Jordan Clarkson produced 22 points, Eric Paschall scored 18 points and seven rebounds, and Donovan Mitchell recorded 17 points, five rebounds, and four assists for the Jazz. Hassan Whiteside (quarantine) will miss Monday’s game against the Lakers.

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers Predictions 1/17/2022

 

The Los Angeles Lakers were defeated 133-96 by the Denver Nuggets on the road, their worst defeat of the year. It was the Lakers’ lowest point total in 11 games, and the second time in that stretch that they missed reaching the century mark.

 

Los Angeles now failed to cover three consecutive matches after failing to cover a +4.5 spread. The Lakers are now 17-26 against the spread. Frank Vogel’s offense struggled in the second half, scoring just 36 points while allowing 60 to the defense.

 

The LA Lakers let up 23 three-pointers to Denver, who also had the most assists (35-21). The only Lakers in double digits were LeBron James (25 points, 9 rebounds, and 2 blocks), Russell Westbrook (19 points, 5 rebounds), and Dwight Howard (13 points).

 

PF Anthony Davis (MCL) and Kendrick Nunn (knee) are out indefinitely. The Lakers boast the NBA’s fifth-best offense, averaging 111.7 points per game, and the league’s 27th-best defense, allowing 113.3 points per game to its opponents.

 

  • The Lakers are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • Los Angeles is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches at home against Utah.
  • The LA Lakers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches in the Western Conference.

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA pick for this game is the Los Angeles Lakers. After meeting the Nuggets on Sunday, the Jazz is playing the second of a back-to-back. I believe they will want to win that match and will put up greater effort against their divisional opponents on Saturday.

 

The importance of divisional games is always greater than that of other matches. However, I anticipate coach Quin Snyder to give rotational guys more playing time against the Lakers, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he rests any of his stars.

 

The Jazz is currently struggling, which is excellent news for the Lakers. They, on the other hand, are not performing well, but they won four of their past five home matches. I’m not predicting they’ll win Utah, but it’ll be a tight game, and I’m betting for Los Angeles to at least cover the spread. The Los Angeles Lakers will win to a predicted score of 118-115.
