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.

Against the slumping Jazz, owning the home-court advantage is something they should capitalize on.
