NBA Predictions: Is total high enough for Mavericks at Nuggets? 1/16/18

Will the Dallas Mavericks and host Denver Nuggets engage in a high-scoring affair tonight at 9PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: Denver. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Nuggets are a 6-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 210 points. Denver opened as a 7-point fave, while the over-under has dropped after opening at 212.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Tuesday afternoon, 66 percent of public bets have come in on the Nuggets.

Injury Report: Mavericks point guard JJ Barea is out tonight with a groin injury. Dorian Finney-Smith is out indefinitely with lingering tendinitis in his quadriceps. Nerlens Noel is out until early February after thumb surgery. Seth Curry is without a timetable for his return due to a stress reaction in his tibia. For the Nuggets, Paul Millsap is out until late February with a torn ligament in his wrist.

Who the Trends Like: Dallas is 2-5 ATS in its last seven meetings in Denver. The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Denver. The under is 8-0 in the last eight Dallas Tuesday games.

Who We Like: Denver's offense has struggled the last three games, failing to exceed 97 games. Good thing for the Nuggets is that Dallas is not a strong defensive team. With the Mavericks' offense flourishing lately with a combined 229 points in their last two games, I expect this contest to safely find the over.
