15* NBA PLAY OF THE DAY on Utah Jazz +11
Utah vs. LA Lakers,
03/18/2012 21:30 EDT,
Score: 103 - 99
Point Spread: +11/-107 Utah
I always look to fade the Los Angeles Lakers whenever they are favored by double-digits. They are notorious for playing down to their competition, which means it is very tough for them to blow out teams that they are supposed to.
Utah has been playing well lately as they have won three of thier last four games, including back-to-back wins over the Timberwolves and Warriors. The Lakers have only beaten the Jazz by more than 11 points once in their last five meetings.
The Lakers are 5-13 ATS (-9.3 Units) when playing 6 or more games in 10 days this season. The Jazz are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS loss. The Lakers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite. L.A. is 17-42 ATS in their last 59 games as a favorite of 11.0 or greater. Roll with the Jazz Sunday.
