Perhaps the biggest game of the regular season for the Denver Nuggets and Dallas Mavericks takes place on Monday night in a NBA betting game that can be seen on NBA-TV. These two teams are locked in a battle for the second seed in the Western Conference and the winner of this game on Monday gets a huge leg up in that race. The Mavericks may have the edge since Denver had to play last night in Orlando.
Mavericks are listed as 5 -point favorite with a total of 211 at SBG Global.
The Mavericks are coming off a rout of Golden State on Saturday night as rookie guard Rodrigue Beaubois poured in 40 points. “First off, I have to say that Roddy had a great game,” head coach Rick Carlisle said, “Coming into this game, we knew this was the type of team that he would be able to showcase his abilities against…It was a good win in a not-so-easy place to play.” The Mavericks will now look to carry their momentum into Monday’s game against Denver and Beaubois will be a part of it. “He has earned the minutes that he has been getting. The type of team we have is beneficial for him. To have the ability to play with a Jason Kidd and the rest of this NBA betting team is only beneficial for him.” Shawn Marion, Caron Butler and Dirk Nowitzki also scored in double figures in the win over Golden State. The intensity level goes up on Monday against Denver. “We are a veteran team and we are all trying to get ready for the playoffs,” Marion said.
