NBA Predictions: Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Lakers Picks

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Chicago Bulls

With the Bulls thin up front, this is a good matchup for Karl-Anthony Towns. They're still feeling things out after the weekend's coaching change and got blown out by the Bucks in Chris Finch's first game at the helm.

Towns had 26 in that game, and the only reason he isn't favored to lead the game in scoring is because Zach LaVine is on the other side. But KAT has proven throughout his career that he can fill up the box score, so this is a good value.

The pick: Karl-Anthony Towns top points scorer @ +210 (Click To Bet)

Houston Rockets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Sexton is shooting 39.5 percent from three-point range on the season, but he's only making 1.5 of them per game, which is why the odds are this high for a good shooter to make that many. But Sexton will get them up—over the weekend, he went 3-for-7 from beyond the arc against Denver. When he shoots that many threes, he makes them.

The pick: Collin Sexton 3+ three-pointers @ +360 (Click To Bet)

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Utah Jazz

The Jazz are the best team in the league and the Lakers have been on a skid since losing Anthony Davis, but this line is way too high.

The Lakers have only lost by eight or more points four times this season four times out of their 10 losses on the season, and even with Davis out, LeBron James is going to be motivated to get the Lakers out of their slump. They might have a better chance at winning against Portland on Friday, but they aren't going to be embarrassed against the Jazz.

The pick: Lakers +8 -108 (Click To Bet)
