Nikola Jokic is averaging 26 points and 13.7 rebounds, while Will Barton is averaging 15.4 points and 4.9 rebounds.

The Nuggets are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Jazz are 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 home games and 5-17-2 ATS in their last 24 games overall. The over is 8-2 in Nuggets last 10 overall. The under is 4-0 in Jazz last 4 home games. The Nuggets are 4-13 ATS in the last 17 meetings in Utah and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back and have been shaky at best on the road, so you can understand why they're the underdog here. However, the Utah Jazz have been rough as of late due to a lot of injuries, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 9.2 points while allowing 50.1 percent shooting from the field. It's hard to side with the Jazz in the favorite role against other respectable teams given their current form. Give me the Nuggets.
