The Jazz are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Nuggets are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Sunday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest. The under is 8-3 in Nuggets last 11 overall. The Jazz are 4-10-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Denver and 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Utah Jazz have the rest advantage here, and they're expected to get Gobert back in the mix, but we can't ignore four straight losses and them losing their last five games by an average of 10 points. The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back, but a lot of key players got to rest due to a blowout over the Lakers. The Nuggets feel like they're starting to figure things out, and they win at home by an average of 4.1 points. There's some value with the Nuggets and the free points here.
