NBA Odds: Nuggets In Seven

Online betting fans know that home court advantage is very important in the NBA. As is the case, it will be the difference between two even division rivals in the Nuggets-Jazz series. The Nuggets leapfrogged the Jazz on the last day of the year and that will be a key factor.

The Story

The Jazz and Nuggets are familiar foes and while both teams spent plenty of time on hot streaks this year, neither really looks like a championship contender. The matchup will be an even one as both teams are pretty good, but neither are a real threat to the Lakers in the West.

Expect this to be an even series with each team to win each home game.


Jazz vs Nuggets: Better Starters?

The starters are even on both sides. Deron Williams and Chauncey Billups sets up and interesting matchup at point guard, Aaron Afflalo and Wesley Matthews are about even at shooting guard, the Nuggets have the edge at small forward with Carmelo Anthony, the Jazz have the edge at power forward with Carlos Boozer while the matchup at center is even.

The difference in style will be interesting as sportsbook odds makers know that the Nuggets like to get out and run, while the Jazz are more of a half court and prefer to slow things down.

Overall, this matchup is even and it’s just a matter of who can dictate the play on their home court.

Edge: Nuggets

Jazz vs Nuggets: Better Bench?

The bench situation is also fairly similar, but the Nuggets are more versatile. NBA betting fans know that the main contributors from the Jazz bench are Kyle Korver and Paul Millsap. Realistically, this is where the Jazz edge has to be if they are going to win this series. Millsap and Boozer are going to have to win the battle on the inside while Korver will have to nail a few daggers from the outside.

The Nuggets bring J.R. Smith off the bench as an excellent supplementary scorer along with the pluggers like Chris Andersen. This year they also added depth at point guard where they have Ty Lawson to spell Billups.

Edge: Even

Jazz vs Nuggets: X-Factor?

The x-factor in this series will be the Jazz inside game versus the Nuggets perimeter.

The Jazz have some excellent scorers on the inside with Boozer, Millsap and Mehmet Okur and they will have to carry the load versus the back court of Anthony, Billups and Smith for the Nuggets.

The other x-factor will be home court advantage and sports betting cappers know that one is the major key.


Who’s Gonna Win?

That extra home game will be the difference. The Nuggets were 34-7 at home this year while the Jazz were 21-20 on the road. On the flip side the Jazz were 32-9 at home and the Nuggets were 19-22 on the road.

That game seven at the Pepsi Center will be the deciding factor as the Nuggets advance.

Pick: Nuggets In Seven
