The Nuggets are led by Nikola Jokic, who averages 20.3 points, 10.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game. Jamal Murray is adding 18.7 points and 4.8 assists per game.

Mavs fall in San Antonio

Dallas played last night in San Antonio and suffered a 119-109 loss on the road. The Mavs have lost two straight and are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games. Dallas is 39-27 on the season, 18-15 at home, 34-29-3 against the spread and 40-26 with the over.

The Mavs have some injury issues at guard, with Jalen Brunson out and Seth Curry questionable. With this being the second game in a back-to-back, it’s possible we could see Kristaps Porzingis rested tonight. He averages 19.2 points and 9.5 rebounds per game. Luka Doncic is leading the team with 28.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 8.7 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Denver

The Nuggets are just 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a win.

Dallas

The Mavericks are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games as a home underdog and 0-7 ATS in their last seven home games against a team with a winning road record.

Prediction:

These two have met twice this season and the road team has won both games as an underdog. Neither team is inspiring a great deal of confidence in their play right now, but Dallas playing a back-to-back makes me concerned. They looked overwhelmed late last night against the Spurs and Denver is bringing a similar style of play and physicality tonight. I don’t think the Mavs are going to have their full compliment of talent either.

NBA Prediction: Denver Nuggets -2.5
