Denver Nuggets vs Utah Jazz 2/5/2020 Betting Odds
Denver Nuggets Betting
The Denver Nuggets are on a roll coming off from a good win over the Portland Trail Blazers. This team could have been in a four-game winning streak if it was not for the hiccup overtime loss against the Detroit Pistons. In their last seven games, they have won five of them. They are still missing key rotation players in Paul Millsap, Mason Plumlee and Michael Porter Jr. The team has been led by Nikola Jokic who has been very dominant in the paint contributing 20.2 points, 10 rebounds and 6.7 assists per night. He will be facing the best defensive center in the league in Rudy Gobert but he needs his teammates to step up when things get tight inside the paint.
Players to watch: N. Jokic C 50 GP 50 GS 32.2 MIN 20.2 PTS 2.3 OR 7.7 DR 10 REB 6.7 AST 1.1 STL 0.6 BLK 2.9 TO 3.1 PF 2.3 AST/TO 24.71 PER

Utah Jazz Betting
The Utah Jazz are on a huge slump of four games and they have not registered a win since January 27. They lost their last three games on the road against San Antonio, Denver and Portland. In their last match against Denver in Colorado, they lost by six points. They are glad that this game will be held in Salt Lake City and in which they have only lost in four contests out of 22. This team has a completer roster with no injuries but they need to make better decisions in the clutch to help them get over the hump.
Players to Watch: D. Mitchell SG 48 GP 48 GS 34.3 MIN 24.6 PTS 0.7 OR 3.5 DR 4.2 REB 4.3 AST 1.1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.5 TO 2.4 PF 1.7 AST/TO 20.24 PER
