Nuggets vs Mavericks
Nuggets @ Mavericks Free Pick
NBA Odds, NBA Predictions
Denver has been on fire as of late, but they’ll face their nemesis – Dallas – on Monday night. Good things happen when the Mavs play Denver at home which is why we’re backing the underdog on Monday. The Mavericks are the Nuggets’ kryptonite winning eight of the last eleven games against Denver when they have played at home in the American Airlines Center. The Mavs could really use a win too after losing four of their last six games. The good news though is that Dallas has covered the spread in seven of their last ten games.
The Nuggets have won three straight and are averaging a red-hot 116.8 points per game, but defensively Denver is one of the NBA’s worst giving up nearly 113 points a game. MVP favorite Luka Doncic leads the Mavs averaging 26.7 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 9.5 points per game. Dallas has been helped by the return of 7-foot-3-inch Kristaps Porzingis who adds 20.3 points and 8.7 boards a game. Porzingis is listed as questionable as is shooting guard Josh Richardson (13.8 ppg). Both are likely to play giving the Mavs a huge boost. Keep in mind, Denver is a rather paltry 3-7-1 ATS the last 11 times the Nuggets have played Dallas. That includes a 1-4 ATS record in the last five meetings. Dallas is a due for a big night against a poor Nuggets defense.
