Denver Nuggets at Dallas Mavericks Wednesday January 8, 2020, 7:30 PM (EST) American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

The Denver Nuggets hit the road for a battle with the Dallas Mavericks.  Who will win tonight’s Nuggets or Mavericks NBA game against the spread? – read below in our prediction.

Denver Nuggets 25-11 (15-18-3 ATS)

The second team of the West shows a game similar to a roller coaster, because victories alternate with defeats, but so far the rivals are not particularly worried. In the offseason, Michael Malone stood his ground to the end and kept almost all the leaders in the team, so it is not surprising to see his wards among the top clubs of the league.

Recall that in the previous meeting, Denver put in place Atlanta, as it defeated the opponent with a score of 123-115. The fight turned out to be rich in spectacular moments, which only cost 47 points of Nikola Jokić, who simply crushed the defense of the Hawks. After such a confident victory, the Nuggets will clearly want to develop their success.

Dallas Mavericks 23-13 (19-16-1 ATS)

Mavericks skidded so that the team was on the sixth line of the Western Conference. Only someone from the Doncic-Porzingis stellar bunch gets injured, as Ricky Carlyle’s team immediately starts to slow down and loses concentration.

Dallas defeated in a previous meeting of Chicago, while the team looked very confident (118-110). The Mavericks are striving to return to the top 5 again and victory in the next match can help them in this, though much also depends on the game of Utah’s direct competitor. In a word, the team aims to give battle to Denver.
