The Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Delta Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Nuggets vs Jazz prediction.

Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets have been in great shape as they’ve won seven of their last 10 games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after making light work of the Hawks in a 142-110 home win on Saturday. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led the team with 24 points on nine of 12 shooting, Michael Porter Jr added 20 points while Nikola Jokic tallied a triple-double of 19 points with 14 rebounds and 11 assists. As a team, the Nuggets shot a sizzling 60 percent from the field and 23 of 41 from the 3-point line as they caught fire early, pouring in 69 points in the first half before they exploded for 42 points in the third quarter to put the game to bed early.

Utah Jazz

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been in terrible form as they are now hoping to put a halt to a 12-game losing streak after getting beaten by the Warriors in a 118-110 road defeat on Sunday. Johnny Juzang led the team with 27 points on nine of 12 shooting off the bench, Keyonte George added 25 points while Collin Sexton chipped in with 15 points and seven assists. As a team, the Jazz shot 47 percent from the field and 15 of 35 from the 3-point line as they allowed the Warriors to get off to a flyer and allowed 41 points in the first quarter and they didn’t really get into any sort of a groove until they fell behind by 23 points in the third quarter.

Utah Jazz Team Facts

  • The Jazz have lost each of their last 16 games against teams that held a winning record.
  • The Jazz have covered the spread in each of their last six games as home underdogs against the Nuggets.
  • Each of the Jazz’s last four games have gone OVER the total points line.

Denver Nuggets Team Facts

  • The Nuggets have won each of their last 12 night games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Nuggets have failed to cover the spread in each of their last eight games at Delta Center when playing with a rest advantage.
  • Each of the Nuggets’ last four games against Western Conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Nuggets vs Jazz prediction

The Nuggets are keeping an eye on Aaron Gordon, who is questionable for this one, while the Jazz are still missing Jordan Clarkson, Lauri Markkanen and John Collins. The Nuggets come into this one brimming with confidence after destroying the Hawks by 32 points in their last outing, while the Jazz have been ice-cold and are now looking to avoid a 13th straight defeat. The line is certainly scary for this one, but the Nuggets are almost back to full health and I think they can cover this spread with ease in this spot.
