The Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 9-21 ATS in their last 30 vs. NBA Southwest. The Mavericks are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Denver. The under is 16-5 in Nuggets last 21 home games. The over is 5-2 in Mavericks last 7 overall.
The Dallas Mavericks have played well up to this point with a balanced offense and are a two-point loss to Portland from being 3-0 on the season. The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back and haven't shot the ball well through three games, despite winning every game. The Dallas Mavericks have the offense to hang in this game and when these teams last met it was decided by just one point. I'll take the free buckets.
