The Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Jazz are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite. The under is 4-1 in Nuggets last 5 overall. The over is 9-4 in Jazz last 13 overall. The Nuggets are 4-12 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Utah.
The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back, and the last thing you want to see on potential tired legs is this physical Jazz defense. This is a rough schedule spot for the Nuggets. However, the Nuggets should be motivated after an upset loss to the Cavaliers, and regardless of the situation, the Nuggets are too good of a basketball team to turn down this many free points. The Nuggets have also won four of the last six meetings against the Jazz. Give me the Nuggets.
