The Thunder are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games and 25-10-1 ATS in their last 36 games overall. The Mavericks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Thunder last 5 overall. The under is 19-7 in Mavericks last 26 overall. The Thunder are 0-7 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Dallas and 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been great at covering numbers on the road and overall dating back to last season, but they also have thrown in some stinkers here and there. The Dallas Mavericks have been a different team since the return of Doncic, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 11.6 points while shooting 48 percent from the field. Thick number, but the Mavs are downright rolling right now. It's the Mavericks or pass for me.
