Denver Nuggets vs. Utah Jazz Gambling & NBA Handicapping Prediction

Denver vs Utah NBA Picks

The Nuggets have not gotten off to a good start this season. The are 1-4 and just lost at Phoenix who is pretty bad in their own right. In this one they get a chance to play a Utah team that is the worst in the league.  [ad-4468020]

Another loss and new coach Brian Shaw might be feeling some serious heat even though he hasn’t even been at the helm for 10 games yet. The West is tough and this year the Nuggets might not be good enough.

In the early going there has been no debate as to who has been the best player for Denver. PG Ty Lawson leads the team in scoring at 22ppg and is coming off a season high of 29 against Phoenix. After Lawson it really drops off though to SF Jordan Hamilton, an unexpected second leading scorer.

Also, the Nuggets need to start getting more from their inside people. The combination of PF Kenneth Faried and C Jevale McGee is averaging only 14.5ppg and 11rbg

If you are playing the worst team in the league and you are only favoured by a point that says a lot about where you are in the pecking order. Based on the names alone I refuse to believe that Denver is worse than Utah, but that doesn’t guarantee anything as we all know.

I am more willing to get down with the bad team I know than the one I don’t. [ad-6571516]


The Jazz have yet to win a game this season and just suffered their worst loss of the season getting blown out by the Toronto Raptors by 24 points on Saturday. They are returning home for this one but they have not dominated there for a while.

Odds are this is not an epically and team but they have already lost to Boston so all bets are off at this point. With the Nuggets also struggling this could be game but I wouldn’t count on it.

To say that Utah is limited offensively is a bit of an understatement. They are the lowest scoring team in the league at 87ppg and when you look at who they are giving lots of minutes too it is hard to say who can really up their production significantly – at least until top pick PG Trey Burke comes back from injury.

If he is ready they should start to be able to compete better because what they are getting from John Lucas III is not nearly enough.

Despite all their limitations and the fact that only a couple of their losses have been close the Jazz are getting some real respect with this number. Old impressions die hard and for most, including oddsmakers, it is hard to imagine the Jazz as an alsoran in the NBA.

Their failure to adjust quickly will be costly.

It already has been with a 1-5-1 ATS record.

Spread Pick: Denver -1
O/U Pick: Under
Score Prediction: Denver 96 – Utah 88
