NBA Betting Trends

Dallas

The Mavericks are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six road games. Dallas is 4-1 ATS in its last five games versus the Western Conference. 

Denver

The Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in its last six games on zero days of rest. Denver is 9-21 ATS in its last 30 games versus the Southwest Division.

Prediction:

Dallas has strong chemistry going with the duo of Doncic and Porzingis and will benefit from a day of rest here while the Nuggets are playing on a back-to-back. I like the Mavs' confidence level right now and Denver hasn't exactly been blowing teams out of the water even with rest. Taking the points with the Mavs.
