Mavericks vs. Nuggets Prediction
The Mavericks are in a horrendous funk but will they be able to shake out of it when they take on the Nuggets at 9:00PM ET tonight?
After opening as a 2-point favorite, the Nuggets are now -1.5 to beat the Mavs tonight according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI. The total has also moved, opening at 213 before dropping to 212.
The Nuggets are 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games and have covered the spread in 14 of their last 20 games coming off a loss as well. They’re 4-1 against the spread in their last five games against Western Conference opponents and are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games coming off a loss of more than 10 points.
On the other side, the Mavericks are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games versus a team with a losing home record and are winless at 0-4 ATS in their last four games versus a team with a losing straight up record. The home team has also had plenty of success in this matchup, going 6-1-1 at the betting window in the last eight meetings between these two teams.
There’s no reason at this point to throw support behind Dallas at the betting window. Following their 133-111 loss to the Kings last night, the Mavs have now lost 10 of their last 12 games. Now they have to play on no rest and in the thin air in Denver. Good luck with that, Dallas.
