The Clippers are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Mavericks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Monday games. The over is 7-3 in Clippers last 10 road games. The under is 7-2 in Mavericks last 9 overall. The Clippers are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Dallas and 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Los Angeles Clippers are struggling over the last week or so, and they're coming off a game last night against the Pelicans where they didn't play a lick of defense. The Dallas Mavericks are playing their best ball of the season right now, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 6.2 points while allowing 43 percent shooting from the field. While the Clippers are the better team on paper, we're getting a free bucket with the team in better form that also has the rest advantage. Give me the Mavs.
