The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a road favorite. The Trail Blazers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Mavericks last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in Trail Blazers last 5 overall. The Mavericks are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Portland and 21-9 ATS in the last 30 meetings.

The Dallas Mavericks are playing their best ball of the season right now, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 4.4 points while shooting 48.7 percent from the field. The Portland Trail Blazers are on the end of a back to back and while they got McCollum back in the mix, they're still a banged up team with limited depth. The Mavs have a clear advantage in this contest. I'll lay the bucket.
