Following a slow start over the first two months Utah has since caught fire to emerge as a top playoff contender. Likewise, the Jazz are using one of the best defenses in the NBA to stay in the Western Conference post season race. Most important of all Utah has improved as a wagering value. Quin Snyder continues to impress as a head coach. Equally important is the quiet success of Denver with the NBA games betting odds. The Nuggets also use strong defense to lead the Northwest Division standings. Michael Malone remains a vastly underrated NBA coach.

Three of their last five road games went over the total. In the same way Utah has been in the red at home recently. The Jazz have covered just four of their last nine games at Vivint Smart Home Arena. And 10 of their last 12 on home court have gone under the total.

Utah has owned Denver in meetings at Vivint Smart Home Arena. To illuminate the Nuggets have paid in just one of their last nine games at Utah. Seven of the last eight in this series at Utah went under the total.
Matchup to Watch
This looks like one of the most even matchups that can be found with NBA games betting odds. As mentioned earlier the Jazz own the Nuggets at home. It follows that with both teams having similar styles Vivant Smart Arena bodes as a big advantage. Utah is in great form right now and playing their best ball of the season.
