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.
