The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nuggets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Mavericks last 7 overall. The under is 5-2 in Nuggets last 7 overall. The Mavericks are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Denver and Mavericks are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Denver
The Dallas Mavericks have put together a little winning streak, but the offense still has yet to reach its potential, and they barely got by the Spurs last night. Also, playing in Denver is never easy due to the altitude, and it's even tougher on the end of back to backs. The Denver Nuggets have the best field goal percentage in the league through four games. I'll gladly lay the bucket with the Nuggets at home.
