The Dallas Mavericks stood pat during the trading deadline and has since enjoyed some home cooking with three straight wins including a notable 106-99 victory against rivals the San Antonio Spurs as a -3 point betting favorite. What we have seen from Dallas is some more offensive output as the club has scored 101 points or more over their past three games. Offense has been the biggest shortcoming for this Dallas team in their defense of the NBA World title. They still defend very well allowing foes just 92 points and 42.7% shooting. They are still a threat to repeat if they can sustain this offensive production. Dirk Nowitzki appears to have gotten his rhythm back as the big man has scored 27 points in each of his past three games.

Denver has been another team underachieving this season with a record of 25-20. They are playing their 8th game of their current 9 game home stand and are only 4-3 thus far. Losses came to Oklahoma City by 13 points, Memphis and to Cleveland in close games. The Denver defense has been a bit shaky as the have allowed their past five opponents to average 100 points with 47.2% shooting and 40% coming from beyond the arc against them.

Trend seekers will find that the Mavericks have won and covered the past two meetings with the Denver Nuggets. Dallas is trending heavily towards the over as the team has played to five straight over the total results based on their surge in offensive production.
