Denver Nuggets vs Utah Jazz: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

It’s not often we see a player get praised after scoring just 4 points on 2-for-3 shooting from the field, but Nikola Jokic isn’t your average player. The 2-time MVP toyed around with the Detroit Pistons dishing out 16 assists and grabbing 7 rebounds to lead his Nuggets to a 131-114 victory on Monday. I’m willing to bet Jokic will attempt more than 3 shots tonight as the task gets a lot tougher against the division rivals Utah Jazz. Interestingly enough, the Nuggets have only 3 wins in the last 10 meetings between the two sides, one of those wins happened in late October when the two teams met at Ball Arena. The Nuggets have been solid on the road this season with 11 wins in 19 outings. They’re also currently on a 6-game win streak in away games, so let’s see if they can put an end to a 5-game losing streak in games played in Salt Lake City.

Only the Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets have been as good as the Utah Jazz over the last 10 games with a 8-2 record. This team is finally clicking at the right time, they’re just 1 game behind the LA Lakers who hold the 10th seed and a spot in the play-in tournament. Lauri Markkanen, who had 27 points in the first meeting of the season vs Denver, has been cooking lately averaging 24 points and almost 9 rebounds on 50% shooting during this hot streak. Utah is no stranger to pulling off upsets, they just beat the Milwaukee Bucks on the road as 8.5-point underdogs. Despite having the best record in the NBA for the past couple of weeks, the oddsmakers still have them as 6.5-point underdogs here. They are an impressive 12-4 ATS in 16 home games this season and are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 head-to-head vs Denver.

Utah Jazz Point Spread

Utah Jazz +6.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds at the time of publishing.

This will be a tricky game for the defending champions, as the Jazz have had their number in recent meetings. I would still pick Jokic and co. to come out on top here, but the Jazz have been very impressive lately. I think they’ll be able to keep things close here so let’s back the home team plus the extra points.

Denver Nuggets vs Utah Jazz Total Points: Over 238

Over 238 Total Points is available at the time of publishing. Playable at that number.

Both teams have been scoring at a high clip since the turn of the new year. Denver is averaging 127 points in their last 3 outings which is the 4th highest number in the entire NBA. The Jazz aren’t far behind, they’ve scored at least 120 points in 4 of their last 5 outings, which isn’t all that surprising considering they’re currently playing at the 5th fastest pace over their last 10 games. Their offensive efficiency has also improved 10 spots to 11th during this run, while Denver has ranked in the top 10 for most of the season so far. I don’t think either side will hold back when it comes to scoring the ball tonight, the over has cashed 4 times in the last 6 Nuggets games. With both teams being on fire offensively I think backing the over is the way to go here.
