Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Mavericks should be proud of themselves despite the tough loss to Portland. Nobody expected them to play that well against a team that made it in the Western Conference finals last season, but they did. Both Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic came through with outstanding all-around performances in that game. Porzingis recorded 32 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists, while Luka Doncic was an assist short of another triple-double with 29 points, 12 rebounds, and 9 assists.
Players to Watch: Luka Doncic (29.3 PPG, 10.3 RPG, 7.3 APG), Kristaps Porzingis (26.3 PPG, 5.7 RPG, 3.3 APG), Delon Wright (11.0 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 3.7 APG)
Denver Nuggets Betting
The Denver Nuggets had some share of hiccups against the Blazers and the Suns, but they still managed to eke out back-to-back wins. After a short stop in Sacramento, the Nuggets will return home to Denver where they have been nearly unbeatable the past two seasons. Nikola Jokic will continue to be that steady all-around star for Denver, while Jamal Murray, Gary Harris and Will Barton are going to provide additional firepower for this top West team.
Players to Watch: Nikola Jokic (21.5 PPG, 13.5 RPG, and 7.0 APG), Jamal Murray (20.5 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 4.5 APG), Will Barton (12.0 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 1.0 APG)

Dallas Mavericks vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks
Start legal online wagering at BetNow to win massive payouts. The Mavericks have bigger plans for the future when they traded for Porzingis to form a dynamic tandem with Doncic last year. Dallas might not be that legit title contender this season, but beating top-caliber teams here and there should definitely build their confidence going forward.
Moneyline: The Nuggets opened at -240 to win Tuesday’s duel against the Mavs. As I said, Denver is going to be one of the teams to beat this season because of their loaded roster, not to mention their highly productive star in Jokic.
ATS: For ATS betting, the Nuggets are just -6 favorites, showing you how sportsbooks respect the caliber of this year’s Mavericks. Dallas is 5-5 ATS with Denver in the last 10 games. I think the Mavs will give the Nuggets a good fight and lose by below six points.
TOTALs: The best O/U total for this game is set at 216 points. Dallas is averaging 115.50 points per game while Denver is scoring 108.00 per contest. With both teams thriving in a run-and-gun offense, I would say scoring 100 points would just be a walk in the park.
Score Prediction: 116-112 Nuggets
