Why Bet on the Denver Nuggets?

Following a surprising loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Nuggets are back on track after taking down the Knicks 113-97 in their last game. Thanks to a spectacular offense, Michal Malone and his team stayed competitive throughout the regular season, and are now getting ready to bring things up a notch leading to the playoffs.

They average 27 assists per game, which is the second-highest in the NBA. This and their impressive 49% field goal percentage make for a highly efficient team.

The player to watch in this Nuggets vs. Jazz contest is Nikola Jokic, who has been at the center of it all for his team. He delivers points if called upon, plays good defense, and is well capable of facilitating plays. He averages 26 points, 8.5 assists, and 10.9 rebounds per game and is a front-runner for the NBA MVP award. Also, the services of Austin Rivers, Michael Porter Jr., and Facundo Campazzo will be vitally important for the Nuggets this Friday.

Why Bet on the Utah Jazz?

If there’s any team that remained consistent day in and out this season, it would be the Jazz. Even without having Donovan Mitchell in recent games, they stayed on track and kept their form.

In their last game against the Spurs, which the Jazz won 126-94, it was Jordan Clarkson who led the scoring with 30 points to his name. This is accompanied by 6 rebounds and 4 assists, all completed in just 25 minutes.

Moreover, the Jazz take pride in its systematic rotation that gives players enough rest and at the same time stays productive on the court. All players that scored double digits in their previous game played well below 30 minutes.

This is a testament to the quality of work Quin Snyder brings to the table. We can expect Rudy Gobert to deliver for his team in this Nuggets vs. Jazz game. His defensive presence covers for the team while Mitchell is out of the picture.

Nuggets vs. Jazz Expert Betting Prediction

This is going to be a thriller of a game as both teams boast a competent offense and can defend at the same time. But on paper, the Jazz should have a slight advantage along with home court advantage. However, the Nuggets could at least cover the spread.

They have good chances of pulling off the win, but the Jazz will not be fazed easily. Ultimately, this is a game that can still go both ways if the teams play to their best.
