NBA Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Clippers have covered the spread in eight straight Tuesday games, but 2-8 ATS in their last 10 following a win.

Dallas

The Mavericks are 3-7-1 against the spread in their last 11 home games, but 17-8 ATS in their last 25 Tuesday games.

Prediction:

The Clippers won the first meeting with the Mavericks, 114-99, in Dallas on Nov. 26. The loss of George hasn’t seemed to impact the Clippers too much, as they have won their last three games. However, The Mavs look to be on track to get Porzingis back. Dallas is playing well as is and I think they can handle themselves at home against a short-handed Clippers squad. Los Angeles hasn’t been great on the road throughout the season as is.

NBA Prediction: Dallas Mavericks -1
