The Nuggets are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Jazz are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nuggets are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Utah and 1-8 ATS in the last 9 meetings overall.
The Jazz play their best ball at home and have covered eight of their last 10 at home. The Nuggets have been hit or miss all season even though they've been solid ats over the last week. I'll side with the Jazz at home for the reasonable chalk.
