Utah is 7-3 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 2-5 against the spread in their last seven home games, and 0-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Los Angeles is 3-8 against the spread on one days rest, 1-4 against the spread against a team with a losing record, and 2-6 against the spread in their last eight road games. The road team is 3-0-1 against the spread in the last four meetings of these two.
With the total set at 200 my free pick here is the over. I also have a pick on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the app.
