Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers Predictions 4/9/2023


The Los Angeles Lakers (42-39; 40-39-2 ATS) are returning from a Friday victory over the Phoenix Suns at home (121-107).


It was the Lakers’ fifth victory in six games as they recovered from a difficult 125-118 loss to the LA Clippers. The Lakers limited the Suns to just 45 points in the second half.


Purple and Gold had a 25:16 assist-to-turnover ratio while shooting 18 for 36 from beyond the arc.


Austin Reaves had 22 points and 5 assists, D’Angelo Russell topped the Lakers with 24 points, and Anthony Davis finished with 14 points, 21 rebounds, four assists, and three blocks.


LeBron James finished with 16 points and six assists despite only shooting 6-for-19 from the floor.


The No. 7 seed in the Western Conference is shared by the Lakers and the Pelicans. With a win over the Jazz, they would clinch the seventh spot because they hold the advantage in the tiebreaker over the Pelicans.


Dennis Schroder, who missed the Suns game because of a neck issue, could be missed by the Lakers.


  • The LA Lakers are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of LA Lakers’ last 7 matches.
  • The LA Lakers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches.

Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA pick for this game is the Los Angeles Lakers. Keep an eye on the injury list since Utah should once again be severely shorthanded.


The Jazz will face a difficult challenge in keeping the intensely motivated Lakers at bay without their best players. As they should hammer the Jazz, take Los Angeles to cover or go with the Lakers team total.


Utah’s defense was terrible the entire season. The Jazz force just 12.6 turnovers per game while allowing 116.8 points per 100 possessions (24th in the NBA) and 47.3% field goal shooting (15th) (28th).


Given that Walker Kessler (concussion) won’t play, Anthony Davis will rule the paint. The Los Angeles Lakers will win to a predicted score of 125-110.
