Point Spread: -4/-108 Dallas
5* NBA BLOCKBUSTER BLOWOUT: Mavericks -4
Dallas currently sits in fifth place in the Western Conference standings, but are just 3-games ahead of Utah who is currently in 9th. The Mavericks simply can't afford to lose at home down the stretch. While the Clippers come in having won five straight, I think Dallas is showing great value.
All five of the Clippers wins came at home, where they are 20-8 on the season. Los Angeles is just 11-13 on the road and are just 1-5 in their last six road games overall.
In the Mavericks last game, they were able to erase an 9-point halftime deficit to beat the Magic 100-98. They outscored Orlando 29-20 in the final period, winning the game on a last second shot by Dirk Nowitzki. It was the kind of win the Mavericks needed to get things turned around. They come in off days rest and I look for Dallas to really pick up the pace down the stretch, starting with an easy win over the Clippers.
Dallas is 20-7-1 ATS in their last 28 Monday games, 36-17-2 ATS in their last 55 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest. BET THE MAVERICKS!
