The Denver Nuggets host the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday in what should be an exciting matchup between two surging squads in the Western Conference.

Both teams have gained momentum as of late, with the Nuggets on a five-game-winning streak and the Mavericks triumphing in 11 of their last 15 contests. After underperforming for the first half of the season, both are poised for a strong second halves in their respective campaigns.

The Mavericks gave their two stars — Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis — the night off in their loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder on the second game of a back-to-back set.

As for the Nuggets, they return home to play in the second game of a back-to-back after squeaking out a one-point win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday.

Given the situational spot where the Nuggets might be a bit fatigued after a competitive game the evening before and having to travel cross country, I see an opportunity to seize value on the underdog Mavericks.
