Utah Jazz at Denver Nuggets NBA Betting Picks

Utah Jazz at Denver Nuggets

Tuesday night the Denver Nuggets and the Utah Jazz tip off their respective seasons and for the time being Carmelo Anthony will still be in a Denver Nuggets uniform.  The latest line for this game posted by Diamond Sports International (DSI) has the Denver Nuggets as three point favorites in this opener.

Ever since LeBron James became the most hyped free agent in NBA history, Carmelo Anthony has been looking to get traded. In recent weeks both the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls were said to be the top teams vying for his service. Although the rumors continue, there is no deal yet set in place.

Utah spent the off season by losing one of their best players when Carlos Boozer left to sign with the improving Chicago Bulls. The Jazz did not sit back and instead pulled off a steal of a deal and grabbed Al Jefferson from the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Jazz are a much better team with Jefferson in the lineup and it will show tonight.

The Jazz are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in the last five meetings and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games as an underdog of 0.5-4.5. The Nuggets are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games as a favorite of 0.5-4.5 and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. The Jazz have the better team in this game and the three points are a gift. Take the three points and get the easy win as the Utah Jazz beat the disgruntled Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets.

Play: Jazz +3

Double doses of chicken pox vaccine most effective: Study

Hindustan Times (New Delhi, India) January 5, 2011 Washington, Jan. 5 — Researchers at Yale School of Medicine have found that two doses are better than one, when it comes to vaccinating children against varicella (chicken pox.

In fact, the odds of developing chicken pox were 95 percent lower in children who had received two doses of the vaccine compared with those who had received only one dose. In the study, Eugene D. Shapiro and his team showed that the effectiveness of two doses is 98.3 percent. this web site chicken pox vaccine

Past studies have suggested that two doses of varicella vaccine are linked to higher antibody levels than one dose, but this is the first study to assess the clinical effectiveness of two doses of the vaccine in the general population.

In a survey Shapiro and his team discovered 71 cases of chicken pox in children ages four and older. None of these children had received two doses of vaccine; 66 (93 percent) had received one dose and five (7 percent) had received no vaccine.

“We weren’t surprised to find that two doses of varicella vaccine are highly effective and are more likely to prevent varicella than a singe dose. chickenpoxvaccinenow.net chicken pox vaccine

“The findings confirm that, at least in the short term, the policy of routinely administering two rather than one dose of varicella vaccine is sensible. Other countries that are routinely immunizing children with varicella vaccine may consider changing to a two-dose regimen,” said Shapiro The findings were published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.
