The Golden State Warriors look for another win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 105.3 points on 43.1 percent shooting and allowing 113 points on 47 percent shooting. D'Angelo Russell is averaging 22.3 points and 6.1 assists while Alec Burks is averaging 15.6 points and 4.6 rebounds.

The Mavericks are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games as a road favorite, 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 road games. The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a home underdog and 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 10-4 in Mavericks last 14 road games. The over is 6-2 in Warriors last 8 games playing on 0 days rest. The Mavericks are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
The Dallas Mavericks should be able to get whatever they want offensively against a bad Golden State defense that's on the end of a back to back. The over has also been a dominant trend with the Mavs on the road lately. When these teams met back in November, the Dallas Mavericks scored 142 points on 57 percent shooting from the field. Instead of playing with double-digit chalk, I'll take the over on the reasonable total.
