Denver Nuggets vs Dallas Mavericks 1/8/2020 Betting Odds
Denver Nuggets Betting
It is a huge 47-points that Nikola Jokic dropped over the Atlanta Hawks in their last game and it left the people in the building with a jaw-dropping experience. He alone demolished the interior of the Hawks and he wanted to make a statement after their humiliating loss to the Washington Wizards a few days before. Will Barton added 28 points, nine rebounds and five assists while Jamaal Murray led the point with 16 points and eight assists. Other than that, the Nuggets just fed Jokic inside and they just let their monster be unleashed. They head to the Dallas Mavericks and expect them to go early into this game to him to lead the charge.
Players to watch: N. Jokic C 36 GP 36 GS 31.1 MIN 18.9 PTS 2.3 OR 7.4 DR 9.8 REB 6.4 AST 1 STL 0.5 BLK 2.5 TO 3.1 PF 2.5 AST/TO 24.41 PER
J. Murray PG 36 GP 36 GS 32.2 MIN 17.8 PTS 0.8 OR 3.3 DR 4.2 REB 4.8 AST 1.4 STL 0.3 BLK 2.2 TO 1.8 PF 2.2 AST/TO 17.67 PER

Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Dallas Mavericks are playing without Kristaps Porzingis but Luka Doncic had been leading this team from every inch of the hardcourt. Against the Bulls, Doncic had 38 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Tim Hardaway Jr scored 15 points while Dwight Powell added 16. Dorian Finney-Smith and Justin Jackson each had 11 points. The Mavs like to run and Doncic has been carrying this team with him. The Nuggets are a more slow-paced team that would like to set up Jokic and the objective is not for the center to replicate a night that happened against the Hawks. Overall, the guards should try to outrun this team and stay alert for that pass coming from Doncic.
Players to Watch: L. Doncic SF 32 GP 32 GS 32.8 MIN 29.7 PTS 1.5 OR 8.3 DR 9.7 REB 8.9 AST 1.2 STL 0.2 BLK 4.2 TO 2.4 PF 2.1 AST/TO 31.74 PER
