Denver Nuggets: Denver (9-9 straight-up, 10-8 against the spread) ended a three-game losing streak on Monday with a 113-110 home win over Toronto. That was as 10½-point favorites, making the Nuggets 0-3 ATS in their last three. The "over" is 4-0 in the team’s last four games (surrendering 110.8 points per game) and 7-1 in its last eight road games overall.

Atlanta Hawks: Atlanta (9-5 SU, 5-9 ATS) is well-rested having last played on Friday. That was a 113-111 home loss to Cleveland as 8½-point favorites, snapping a six-game winning streak. Starting guard Kyle Korver (back) missed last game and is questionable for Wednesday (click to check updated NBA injury report). The Hawks are just 1-7 ATS at home this year despite going 5-3 SU. They’re 0-4 SU and 1-3 ATS in their last four against Denver, with the latest coming in March (a 118-117 overtime loss).

Dallas Mavericks: Dallas (8-9 SU, 7-10 ATS) starts a three-game road trip on Wednesday that continues in Phoenix and Houston. The road hasn’t been kind to the Mavericks this year at 2-6 SU (3-5 ATS). The "under" is 5-1 in their last six away and road scoring overall this year (93.3 ppg) is much lower than in Big D (103.8 ppg).

Los Angeles Clippers: The Clippers (11-6 SU, 9-8 ATS) have won three straight after a 105-104 decision at Utah on Monday. However, that was a failure to cover as 2-point favorites, making Los Angeles 1-6 ATS in its last seven. The "over" is 5-0 in the last five for the Clips, with 197 points the highest total listed. This is the first meeting between Dallas and the Clippers this season. L.A. is 2-1 SU and ATS in the last three matchups after going 0-7 SU and ATS in the previous seven.
