Why Bet on the Dallas Mavericks?
It’s a good season for the Mavs so far. The team lost their opener and quickly bounced back with three consecutive wins.
The Mavs aren’t the highest-scoring team in the league. They only average 102.0 points per game (25th) and have the worst points in the paint per game record at 34.7 (30th). Luka Doncic spearheads the team with his expertise. He leads the Mavs with 23.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 8.7 rebounds per game.
Meanwhile, the Mavs make up for the lack of offense at the other end of the court, as they limit opponents to 104.7 points per game (11th). But what makes them stand out is their ability to protect the paint. Dallas opponents are being limited to just 40.0 points in the paint through four games.
Kristaps Porzingis remains under close observation following a back injury. Maxi Kleber starts the power forward position this Friday if he does not get the green light.
Why Bet on the Denver Nuggets?
The Denver Nuggets look to recover from a 122-110 road defeat in the hands of the Jazz. This is their second game of the season where they lost by over ten points. The team averages 103.8 opponent points per game (9th). These are good numbers, but there’s more scoring work to be done. The team allowed 102.2 points per game (24th) in four games.
Denver shoots the ball well, recording a 55.5 effective field goal percent (2nd). Despite not being the best three-point shooting team, they make the most out of two-point openings. Nikola Jokic leads his team with 13.5 points per game. He also leads the team in assists and blocks with 4.5 and 2.0, respectively.
However, the Joker is placed day-to-day following a right knee injury. This spells trouble for the Nuggets should he sit this game out. JaMychal Green is expected to take his place if Jokic does not get the go signal from the medical staff.

Mavericks vs. Nuggets Expert Betting Prediction
The Nuggets hold the slight advantage coming into the game. Home-court advantage will be a crucial element in their hopes to break a losing streak. But, if Jokic fails to suit up on Friday, we expect this game to be neck and neck. Meanwhile, the visitors also have one of their talismans on the questionable list. If Porzingis does not recover in time, there’s more pressure on Doncic and the rest of the Mavs. Covering the spread should be doable for them. Effectively, a win is possible if they start on the right note.
