The Mavericks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Spurs are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games as an underdog and 34-16-1 ATS in their last 51 Friday games. The under is 5-1 in Mavericks last 6 overall. The under is 5-1 in Spurs last 6 overall. The Mavericks are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in San Antonio and 11-5 ATS in the last 16 meetings.
We've made a nice profit on the San Antonio Spurs in the underdog role dating back to the NBA bubble, but it feels like oddsmakers have caught on a bit and the Spurs are coming off some real ugly losses lately. The Dallas Mavericks have an offense that's starting to heat up, and they just absolutely torched a good Pacers team a couple of days ago. The Mavs have also won three of the last four meetings against the Spurs. This line is soft. Give me the Mavericks on the road.
