Utah Jazz Betting

The Jazz got their winning streak snapped by a Houston Rockets that did not include Russell Westbrook and James Harden. They suffered another loss in the hand of the Spurs and this has been their first back-to-back losses in quite a long time. In their recent game, Donovan Mitchell had 31 points while Rudy Gobert controlled the interior with 18 points and 19 rebounds. Jordan Clarkson chipped in with 20 points and Micke Conley added 12 from the bench. Bojan Bogdanovic had a subpar night shooting just 6-for-16 from the field but managed to finish with 17 points and nine rebounds. This Jazz squad are looking to tweak things and they need more from Joe Ingles who has been struggling so far in the past few games.

Denver Nuggets Betting

The Nuggets are coming off a tough loss against the young Memphis Grizzlies on the road. Nikola Jokic had 25 points, 13 rebounds but he also had seven turnovers in their last game. Jerami Grant is coming to his own providing 21 points while dropping six triples. Gary Harris had 10 points and there is no other Nugget that had double-scoring. This was a game that the Nuggets had a tough time staying afloat as their depth is compromised with the injuries of Paul Millsap, Mason Plumlee and Jamaal Murray. Against the slumping Jazz, owning the home-court advantage is something they should capitalize on.
