The robust Monday night schedule in the NBA will feature an interesting battle in the Western Conference as the Denver Nuggets pay a visit to the Dallas Mavericks.
Denver (18-16) is wrapping up a four-game road trip tonight and will look to make it a clean 4-0 sweep during that stretch. The Nuggets were last in action on Saturday when handling the Rockets for a 124-111 victory. Nikola Jokic came through with 24 points and 11 rebounds while Facundo Campazzo dropped 22 points and 12 assists.
Dallas (18-18) is returning home from a five-game road trip over the holidays that had mixed results. The Mavericks came out on the winning end of a 95-86 victory over the Thunder last night, a game that Tim Hardaway Jr. and Marquese Chriss led with 15 points apiece.
Dallas enters the the game as a three-point favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook. The total is set at 212.5.
Pick ATS: Nuggets +3
The Mavericks are back at home but they’re playing the back end of a back-to-back and we’re inclined to lean with the team with the rest advantage here. Denver is rolling and one would imagine that it continues to roll tonight.
Over/Under: Under 212.5
Both of these teams have played a handful of games that have gone under 212 points as of late. With Denver playing the last game of a road trip and Dallas on the band end of a back-to-back, that’ll most likely be the case once again tonight.
