The Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The Dallas Mavericks need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 109.6 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 109.9 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 27.3 points and 9.9 assists while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 19.7 points and 8.3 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Richardson is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 33.1 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game.

The Utah Jazz look to build on their nine-game winning streak. The Utah Jazz are averaging 113.2 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 106.1 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24.3 points and five assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17.4 points and 1.9 assists. Mike Conley is the third double-digit scorer and Bojan Bogdanovic is grabbing 3.9 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 40.3 percent from beyond the arc and 71.2 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 49.4 rebounds per game.


The Mavericks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Jazz are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Mavericks last 4 overall. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Utah and 10-3 in the last 13 meetings.

The Utah Jazz probably aren't a team you should be stepping in front of right now, as they're winning and covering at a ridiculous rate. However, the Mavericks have a rest advantage here and are kind of due for a victory after their recent struggles. I don't expect the Mavs to keep losing games much longer. The Mavericks are also winning by an average of 2.7 points in the underdog role. This bet may come back to bite me, but I still see value in free points with the Mavericks.
