Jazz Have Plenty to Play for Sunday

Gordon Hayward Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz’s postseason hopes are looking promising thanks to another team: the Houston Rockets. Houston dropped two games in a row this week, which has caused the Jazz to maintain sole possession of the eighth and final playoff spot and one game ahead of the Rockets. A win against the Denver Nuggets would go a long way into pushing Utah back into the playoffs for the first time since 2012.

Shark Bites
  • The Jazz are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Nuggets last 5 games.
  • The Jazz are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Denver.

The Nuggets are well out of the playoff race, and they haven’t particularly fared well versus Utah. In the first three meetings of the season, Utah scored an average of just 84.3 points - the second lowest the Jazz have allowed against a West opponent all year long. The Jazz can sweep Denver for the first time since the 2002-03 campaign when Hall of Famers Karl Malone and John Stockton were leading the charge.

Totals bettors will be happy to hear the UNDER is trending in a big way in this series. In the last eight matchups between the clubs in Denver, the UNDER is 7-1. Utah is also 8-2 ATS in the previous 10 meetings between the squads.
