Key Utah injuries put them at a disadvantage in this matchup vs Denver. [C] 08/06/2020 - Rudy Gobert is OUT Friday vs San Antonio ( Rest )[SG] 08/06/2020 - Donovan Mitchell is OUT Friday vs San Antonio ( Leg )
I know Denver is also banged up and not playing with guards Jamal Murray (left hamstring) and Gary Harris (right hip), as well as forward Will Barton (right knee) for the last four games. But key Forward Paul Millsap sat out for rest Thursday should be back in the lineup on Saturday and gives this Denver side a very good chance at victory thanks to a deep bench, a rising star in Micheal Porter and a top level talent in Jokic.
NBA team vs the money line (UTAH) - off a cover where the team lost the game straight up as an underdog, in a game involving two good teams (60% to 75%) are 13-77 L/23 seasons for a go against 86% conversion rate for bettors.
Play on Denver to win
