Dallas Mavericks

The Mavericks are 7-5 so far this season and are 5-1 at home so far this season ranking 2nd in the Southwest. In their last game at home, they beat the Blazers 117-112.  Luka Doncic had 42 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for his third triple-double of the season.

BETTING TRENDS

LA Nuggets are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games against Dallas.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of LA Nuggets' last 8 games on the road.

LA Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Dallas.

Dallas are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Dallas' last 11 games.

Dallas are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.

Prediction

The Nuggets aren't playing bad without Kawhi Leonard as they have won 6 of their last 8 games and are 7-5 without him this season. The Mavs bounced back after back-to-back losses and exploded offensively against the Blazers but they're still 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games. Dallas is 5-1 at home but they have won by 7 or more points in only 2 of those games and one was against the Magic. The Nuggets are a very tough team to beat and 7 points are too many for me. I'm going with the Nuggets to cover the spread. 

PICK: Nuggets +7 (-110)
