Both the Jazz and the Lakers will be looking to bounce back from disappointing losses when they go head-to-head in the NBA bubble.

Utah are still looking to fill the gaps that Bojan Bogdanovic has left on the offensive end, while Los Angeles needs to find consistent go-to scoring options that aren't LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Dimers' Suggested Plays

Lock: Jazz +6
Moneyline: Jazz (+210)
Total Points: Over 217

(Lines and odds correct at time of publishing)

Lock

The Lakers showed against the Raptors that they have some offensive inconsistencies, managing only 92 points despite the high-scoring nature of the bubble so far. With Rudy Gobert anchoring the middle, the Jazz should be able to push Los Angeles all the way. Expect them to cover.

 

 

Moneyline

The value in this game is with Utah, who have strong pillars on both ends of the floor in the form of Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. They are +210 underdogs for this game but considering 

Total Points

Over 217 - The NBA restart has seen some high-scoring affairs, however, due to their most recent performances, the line for this game sits at 217 (at time of publishing). Our numbers suggest the game will go over that mark.

Dimers' take-out

The Jazz and Lakers have both shown that they still have room to improve in the NBA bubble, which means this should be an exciting game. The star power of Los Angeles is often irresistible, however, Utah have the talent to take it up to their Western Conference opponents.
