Prediction

Nuggets 121, Jazz 116

Money line

The Nuggets had won five games in a row before Tuesday’s loss and they have won seven of their last 10 games. Denver has won eight of its last 11 road games.

The Jazz are scuffling and will be without their two best players again in Mitchell and Gobert. Utha will struggle to match up against Jokic with Gobert sidelined.

Take the NUGGETS (+105).

Against the spread

The Nuggets are 21-29 ATS overall this season, but the Jazz have an almost identical record against the spread at 21-29-1.

Denver has covered the spread in three of its last four games but is 3-6 ATS in its last nine, while Utah is 2-11 ATS through its last 13 outings and 5-18 ATS across its last 23 games.

Take the NUGGETS +1.5 (-107).

Over/Under

Nine of the last 11 games for the Nuggets have gone Over the projected total.

Three of the last four for the Jazz have hit the Over but they are 4-6 O/U in their last 10 games. They have allowed 115 or more points in three of their last four games.

The Nuggets have averaged 120.8 points per game in their last eight.

Take OVER 226.5 (-108).
