(569) Dallas vs. Denver (570)
PICK: caesars @ -11 DEN (-110)
DATE: March 14, 2019 - 10:30 PM
STAR RATING: 8.0
EXPERT: Mike Lundin
EVALUATION: Loss (-880) - Final Score DAL 99 at DEN 100
The Denver Nuggets had lost four of five including a loss to Golden State on Friday before coming through with a complete effort in a 133-107 triumph over the short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night. Here they'll get an opportunity to take advantage another weak opponent with injury woes.
Dallas has lost six straight (11 of 12) and Mavericks rookie standout Luka Doncic is banged up and managed just 12 points on 5-of-18 shooting while missing six of his seven shots from beyond the arc in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs. "He had a rough night," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said after the game. "I probably played him too many minutes."
"Honestly, I wasn’t 100 percent, but I want to play," Doncic said after the game. "I want to play always. Even if we’re not playing for that much right now, I want to play every game."
The Mavs have struggled on the road all season long, and here they'll play in one of the most hostile environments in the league. Denver won by 10 at Dallas on Feb 22 and is 23-11 ATS home at Pepsi Center this season. I like the Nuggets to roll over the Mavs tonight.
8* play on Denver Nuggets.
