Bet on Nuggets vs. Mavericks

There is nothing at stake right now, but the Mavericks are playing awful and have been for weeks. The Mavericks don’t seem to have any motivation to put forth a strong effort on the floor right now and even are having Tony Romo suit up for them. Denver no longer is vying for a playoff spot, but the Nuggets are an offensive team that should take advantage of Dallas laying low.
