    The Denver Nuggets had their five-game winning streak snapped Sunday, as they suffered a 118-103 setback to the Utah Jazz as six-point road favorites.

    NBA handicappers will find that the Nuggets are 2-2 straight up and against the spread as road underdogs of 6.5 to nine points this season.

    The Golden State Warriors have won 11 of their last 12 games, including a 99-97 victory over the Boston Celtics as 11.5-point home favorites last Friday.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Warriors are 12-2 straight up and 9-5 against the spread as home favorites of 6.5 to nine points.

Prediction

    I'm going to recommend that readers back the Golden State Warriors, as they've gone 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games when playing on three or more days rest.
