Denver Nuggets Betting

The Denver Nuggets are seen as the most dangerous team at the bottom half of the NBA Western Conference playoff picture. The main reason is that this team will have Jamal Murray back soon and this team is placed 6th just behind the Dallas Mavericks by just half a game. Nikola Jokic has been stuffing up the stat sheet and has been a triple-double threat at every game. He gets help from Aaron Gordon who adds up additional rebounding power inside while Jokic orchestrates the offense. The shining light during Murray’s injury is the emergence of Monte Morris as a prime point guard in the league.

Utah Jazz Betting

It is now a five-game losing streak for the Utah Jazz and they need to stop this slump right now in order to avoid going down further in the standings. A loss here may result for them to go down deeper and let the Dallas Mavericks overtake them and it will be followed by the Denver Nuggets as well. It is another tough game for the Jazz as Joe Ingles is the most recent player added to the increasing injury list. Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell are still sidelined and the team is now relying on Mike Conley Jr., Bojan Bogdanovic and Jordan Clarkson to carry them in the next few weeks.
