Mavericks vs Nuggets Pick

The Mavericks enter this game as the seventh lowest scoring team in the league at 104.5 points per game with the Nuggets even worse at 103.8 points per game. With Denver playing their second game in a back-to-back and hampered by injuries, they should struggle to put up their usual amount of points. Given the slow pace of both teams and the fact that they only combined for 181 points in October, backing the under makes sense.
