The Denver Nuggets are a really good basketball team and have one of the better home court advantages because of where they play. I get it. However, we're getting free points with the hottest team in the league. The Jazz have won 11 straight, have covered 13 of their last 16, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 15 points. There's no stepping in front of that. Give me the Jazz.
