3* Bailout Blowout on Dallas Mavericks -
Orlando vs. Dallas,
02/20/2013 20:30 EDT,
Score: 96 - 111
Point Spread: -11/-107 Dallas
The Magic are a team that relies on turnovers to play in close games. With a 15-38 record this season it is obvious they lack the talent it takes to win without forcing turnovers. Orlando is 6-17 ATS versus good ball handling teams that are committing 14 or less turnovers per game this season.
The Mavericks are the hot team right now as they attempt to make a late season rally towards the playoffs. They have won three of their last four games and the offense is averaging 111.25 points per game in that span.
The Magic have lost eight consecutive games on the road and their defense has been horrible. They gave up 119 points against Cleveland, 107 points against Milwaukee and were beat by 17 points against Philadelphia in their last three road games. The Mavericks are hungry for a playoff berth and should have no problem handling Orlando tonight.
