Neither the Nuggets nor the Jazz have gotten off to the start of the year that they had envisioned, knowing that both are just 2-3 on the campaign. However, there is one easy stat that has to be looked at closely before we even try to analyze the NBA matchups in this one. The Jazz have yet to win a game on the road this year. The Nuggets have yet to lose a game at home. Looking back at the history of these two teams, it shouldn’t be all that surprising that the home team has won seven of the last 10 and has covered six of the last 10 as well. Al Jefferson has a stomach virus, and if he can’t give it a go in the high elevation of the Rockies, the Jazz are going to be short one fantastic post player against a team that just doesn’t have all that much bulk in the paint. Utah is just 3-7-1 ATS in its last 10 trips to Denver, and it just feels like the team is going to end up getting trumped in this one by a hungrier, faster team that can run it off the court.
Jazz @ Nuggets NBA Pick: Denver Nuggets -4.5
Jazz @ Nuggets Score Prediction: Nuggets 104 – Jazz 96
