Utah News & Notes

Donovan Mitchell scored 26 points as the Utah Jazz rolled to a 116-92 win over the Atlanta Hawks as 6.5-point home favorites on Friday night. Since opening the season with a 4-4 SU and 3-5 ATS record, the Jazz are 4-0 SU and ATS over their last four games with an average margin of victory of 19.3 points per game over that stretch. Mitchell has been red hot over the team’s four-game winning streak averaging 28.3 points per game.

Mike Conley is averaging 17.1 points and 5.8 assists per game through Utah’s first 12 games after averaging only 14.4 points and 4.4 assists per game in his first season with the Jazz last year. After losing in seven games to the Denver Nuggets in the postseason last year, the Jazz are hoping that Conley and Mitchell can continue to play well this season to take Utah to the next level in 2021.

Denver News & Notes

Nikola Jokic has played his way into the NBA MVP conversation with a fantastic start to the 2020-21 season. After getting off to a sluggish start in 2019-20, Jokic has surged out of the gate this year averaging 24.2 points, 11.2 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game through Denver’s first 12 games. Denver is just 6-6 SU and 4-8 ATS despite Jokic’s strong play, however.

The Nuggets have been heating up recently though with a 5-2 SU and 3-5 ATS record over their last seven games since starting the season on a 1-4 SU and ATS skid. Denver picked up a 114-104 win over the Golden State Warriors as 4.5-point favorites in their last game on Thursday night. The team is hoping to improve on a 3-4 SU and 2-5 ATS record at home with a win in this one.

Betting Pick: OVER 219.5 points

Denver has scored at least 114 points in each of its last seven games and Utah has been on an offensive tear of late as well. This one should provide plenty of points and sail OVER the posted total.
