Against the Spread Pick

The Denver Nuggets will be playing the second game of a back-to-back situation when they visit the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. Denver destroyed Portland on Tuesday, but that came at home and this team is 20-6 at the Pepsi Center compared to 15-10 on the road. Utah, meanwhile, is a dominant 18-4 at home compared to 14-13 on the road. In other words, the Jazz’s home-court advantage combined with the Nuggets’ possible fatigue could be real factors in this one. Utah has actually lost four in a row, but three of those were on the road and the one home setback came against Houston. This squad is more than capable of getting back in gear sooner rather than later. Denver is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 playing on no days of rest and 1-10 ATS in its last 11 trips to Utah. The Jazz are 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine at home. UTAH is probably the way to go.

Over Under Pick

Denver pinned 127 points on Portland in its previous outing. That was preceded by a 128-123 setback at the hands of a defensive-minded Detroit squad. Jamal Murray is back from an injury and contributed 20 points on just nine shots against the Trail Blazers. The over is 4-1 in the Nuggets’ last five on the road against opponents with home winning percentages over .600 and 5-2 in their last seven playing on no days of rest. It is also 8-3 in the Jazz’s 11 overall. Look for this one to go OVER the total.
