Mavericks run past Philly

Dallas wrapped up a six-game home stand on Saturday with a 109-91 win at home over Philadelphia. However, the Mavs were just 3-3 during the six games. Dallas is 24-15 on the season, 12-5 on the road, 20-18-1 against the spread and 24-15 with the over.

The Mavericks are one of the stronger offenses in the league, averaging 116.1 points per game while shooting 46.1 percent from the field. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 109.3 points per game while opponents shoot 44.8 percent against them. Kristaps Porzingis and JJ Barea are both questionable to play tonight as they deal with injury/illness. Porzingis is averaging 17.3 points and 9.4 rebounds per game. Luka Doncic is leading the team with 29.1 points, 9.7 rebounds and 9.0 assists per contest.

Warriors drop eighth straight

Golden State is riding an 8-game losing streak right now following a 122-102 loss at Memphis. The Warriors are 3-5 against the spread during this losing streak. Golden State is 9-32 on the season, 6-13 at home, 19-22 against the spread and 24-17 with the under.

The Warriors are struggling on offense this season, averaging just 104.7 points per game while shooting only 42.7 percent from the field. Defensively, Golden State is giving up 112.9 points per game while opponents shoot 46.9 percent against them. D’Angelo Russell is leading the team with 23.7 points and 6.0 assists per game. Alec Burks is adding 15.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends


The Mavericks are 19-6-1 against the spread in their last 26 road games and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as a road favorite.

Golden State

The Warriors are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a home underdog.


Dallas already has a pair of lopsided wins over the Warriors, including a 20-point road win on Dec. 28. Dating back further, the Mavericks have covered the spread in six straight against Golden State. The Mavs haven’t looked their best as of late, but they did pick up some lopsided wins over average teams like the Nets and Bulls while also beating Philly by 18. Golden State hasn’t been terribly competitive over recent weeks and I think they will struggle to contain Doncic. Doncic can facilitate enough offense to lead the Mavs to the cover.

NBA Prediction: Dallas Mavericks -8
