The Jazz are 8-21-1 ATS in their last 30 road games and 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Nuggets are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win. The under is 6-2 in Jazz last 8 overall. The over is 8-3 in Nuggets last 11 overall. The Jazz are 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Denver and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Denver Nuggets are the better, more talented team that's more than capable of playing to their ability and blowing the doors off here. However, the Utah Jazz are a team I was talking about since the preseason that they're not your typical tanking team in terms of talent, and you'll be able to make money on them this season in the underdog role. Through 5 games, the Jazz are 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS with a defense that's top-10 in field goal percentage and 3-point percentage allowed. Until the Jazz show signs of regression, I'll keep grabbing the points with this club.
