Utah’s Underperforming Offense is Leading to an Abundance of UNDERs

The Denver Nuggets haven’t won three games in a row all season, but they have a chance to accomplish the feat vs the Utah Jazz on Tuesday.

Xbet opened the Nugs as 6-point home favorites with a total of 204.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Nuggets are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games.
  • The favorite is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings.
  • The OVER is 5-2 in the Nuggets’ last seven home games.

Denver easily beat the banged-up Golden State Warriors 96-81 on Saturday to end a brief road trip with a 2-0 SU mark. The excursion was a pleasant surprise for Nuggets bettors, as the squad is 7-12 on the road this season but 11-3 at home. Mike Malone’s group held Golden State to just 3-of-27 shooting from the three-point line in the triumph.

Utah enters the game ranked seventh in the NBA in three-point percentage (38.1) but hasn’t been hitting them lately. The Jazz made just six of 26 long-range attempts in Saturday’s 103-89 loss to Oklahoma City, which was their eighth defeat in the last 10 games. The Jazz have been held below 100 points in each of their last four contests.

As a result of their inability to score, the UNDER has been a profitable wager when the Jazz take the floor. In Utah’s last five games, the UNDER is 4-1.
