Every day The Denver Gazette sports staff will publish its best bets:
1. Nuggets (-8) against Jazz: Denver opens the season with a rebuilding Utah team. A healthy Nuggets squad should win easy.
2. Colorado State (-5) over Hawaii: Rams are favored and look for their first home win.
3. Justin Thomas (16-1) to win CJ Cup: He is not the favorite but JT is always a good bet in my mind.
