The Mavericks are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Thunder are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The under is 11-4 in Mavericks last 15 overall. The under is 5-2 in Thunder last 7 home games. The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Dallas Mavericks are going to get a big boost with the expected return of Doncic, but let's not act like the Mavs were lighting the world on fire when he was playing earlier this season. The Mavs are just 2-5 against the spread this season when favorites of five or more points. The Oklahoma City Thunder have issues of their own, but they'll sneak in a solid performance here and there, and they only lose at home by an average of 2.8 points. I'll take a shot with the home dog.
