Lakers favored to miss playoffs after falling to Clippers

The Los Angeles Lakers are a half-game behind the Utah Jazz for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with five games to play.

The Lakers are now -145 to miss the playoffs and +125 to make it at the Las Vegas Hotel SuperBook

Four of the Lakers' final five games are at Staples Center, where Los Angeles is 25-12 SU (straight up) this season. Their only road game is Wednesday in Portland. Utah has four games remaining and finishes the campaign on the road in Minnesota and Memphis.

Lakers G Steve Nash (hip spasm) has missed the last three games and is questionable Tuesday vs. the Hornets. Nevada-based oddsmaking service, The Sports Club, sent out a suggested spread of Lakers -9 with a total of 198.

Here is the Lakers' remaining schedule:

April 9 vs. New Orleans (Lakers are 3-0 SU, 2-1 ATS)
April 10 at Portland (2-1 SU, 1-2 ATS)
April 12 vs. Golden State (2-1 SU, 2-1 ATS)
April 14 vs. San Antonio (0-2 SU, 1-1 ATS)
April 17 vs. Houston (1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS)

Utah's remaining schedule:

April 9 vs. Oklahoma City (Jazz are 1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS)
April 12 vs. Minnesota (2-0 SU, 2-0 ATS)
April 15 at Minnesota (2-0 SU, 2-0 ATS)
April 17 at Memphis (1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS)
