The Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 22-10 ATS in their last 32 Monday games. The Mavericks are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Nuggets last 5 overall. The under is 11-4 in Mavericks last 15 overall.

The Dallas Mavericks are on the end of a back to back, but they got their best player back in Doncic and that makes them a lot more attractive betting wise. The Denver Nuggets have run hot and cold all year, and they're hard to trust on the road, where they lose by an average of 1.5 points and struggle to get stops defensively. The Mavs have won five of the last eight meetings against the Nuggets. With Doncic back in the mix and at home, I have to lay the bucket with the Mavericks.
