Mavs the NBA Underdogs ?
A good NBA pick yesterday, we better keep the ball rolling tonight also.
Just a few games in the league tonight, but we have a good NBA underdog that can bring some $ .
Coming through a terrible losing streak, Dallas Mavericks (12-18) dropped their eighth in nine games Friday with a 106-85 defeat to Denver. After a heartbreaking OT loss in front of the OKC, Dallas collapsed again.
Dirk Nowitzki had five points in 17 minutes, continuing to ease his way back after missing the first 27 games following knee surgery late in the preseason.
O.J. Mayo showed some signs of breaking out of his slump with a team-high 15 points, but he went 1 of 5 from 3-point range. While he leads the team at 18.7 points per game, Mayo has averaged 8.8 points on 30.2 percent shooting during the team’s losing streak. OJ started the season excellent, but all of sudden , he started to shoot bricks. Last game, he started to come around a bit, tonight though might be the night to turn it around.
The Mavericks are hoping to find some rhythm after shooting 5 of 25 from 3-point range against the Nuggets to fall to 32.2 percent from beyond the arc in December – among the worst in the NBA.
Spurs haven’t played nearly as well in losing their last four on the road, averaging 96.3 points on 43.2 percent shooting. The Spurs had lost just five of their previous 36 regular-season road games.
NBA trends to consider
Spurs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
Spurs are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference.
Spurs are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games.
Mavericks are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS loss.
Mavericks are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU loss of more than 10 points.
Home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
This is a circumstantial play and Dallas is supposed to bounce back at home, in the last game of the year, in front of their own fans.
So, tonight’s free NBA pick is Dallas +6 at Sports interaction.
