Will the Lakers make the playoffs?
According to sports book Bovada, the Lakers are the prohibitive favorite to beat out the Utah Jazz.
Bovada gives Utah relatively scant odds at 3-to-1 compared to 1-to-5 odds for the Lakers.
The Jazz (41-38) are a single game behind the eighth-place Lakers (42-37). Given that Utah owns the tiebreaker, one loss from the Lakers would give the Jazz the opportunity to climb into the postseason.
