The Denver Nuggets travel to the Salt Lake City this Monday evening, November 26 for a betting matchup against the Utah Jazz that will take place at Energy Solutions Arena, with tip off scheduled for 9:05 PM EST.
The Oddsmakers have listed the home team Jazz as a -3 point favorite in this contest, while posting the over/under total at 200 points on the nose.
The Nuggets come into play Monday night winners of four in a row and now own a straight up record of eight wins and six losses after their first 14 games played so far this season. They are 5-4 against the spread when playing on the road and 3-1 when listed as the underdog.
Meanwhile, the Jazz are 7-7 straight up, but are a sterling 4-1 against the spread when playing at home this season. They have also faired well when laying the chalk, which has been done nine time so far this season, earning six ATS victories compared to just three losses
The Nuggets have covered the point spread in four straight games played against teams in the Western Conference and four of their last five contests played on a Monday.
They have eclipsed the total in four of their last five games played on the road.
The Jazz 8-2 against the spread in their last ten games played on a Monday and 6-2 ATS versus teams in the Northwest Division.
They have kept the final score under the posted total in 11 of their last 16 versus the Western Conference.
The Jazz are tough at home, but tonight I think the Nuggets find a way to earn a road victory in Utah.
