The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 Wednesday games. The under is 7-2-1 in Mavericks last 10 games following a ATS loss. The under is 25-10-1 in Pelicans last 36 overall. The Mavericks are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

The Dallas Mavericks are the better team and should be favored here, but they're not playing well, losing their last five games by an average of six points, and they lose on the road by an average of 5.7 points. The New Orleans Pelicans have shown flashes of life lately, and they're actually winning their last five games by an average of 1.8 points. The Pelicans are playing the better ball over the last week or so. I'll take a shot with the home dog, but there are better bets on Wednesday's card.
