NBA Wednesday: Greg Frank picks Nuggets vs Mavericks – Luka for Dallas to try to make a statement

The tip is at 7:30 pm EST.

1-0 Tuesday, 64-63-1 overall.

Nuggets (+3) @ Mavericks (221)

Pick: Mavericks -3

The Denver Nuggets will not play a home game in 2020 until Saturday, January 11. That probably feels late, and that’s because it is. Denver wraps up a five-game road trip tonight in Big D and the Mavericks should be able to cover this short number. The fact that the Nuggets needed most of the game to put away the lowly Hawks on Monday is an indicator that they’re ready to get back to the Mile High City and given this step up in competition on Wednesday, there’s a good opportunity to bet against Nikola Jokic and company. Then consider that Denver is one of the teams Dallas is looking up at in the Western Conference standings. A team like Dallas, looking to break through this season and join the rest of the contenders out West will likely want to make a statement in this kind of game. Denver has played into the middle of May in seasons prior and may do so again this year. This is a great chance for Luka Doncic and his supporting cast to prove they’re on the same level as a team that was in a Game 7 of the conference semifinals at home last season. Lay the three and take Dallas here as we expect the Mavs to win by double digits.
