The Dallas Mavericks and the Brooklyn Nets duke it out at the Barclays Center on Wednesday night.
The Dallas Mavericks have been in red-hot form as they’ve won seven of their last eight games and they will be looking to stay hot after sneaking past the Celtics in a 95-92 road win on Sunday. Luka Doncic led the team with 26 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, Dorian Finney-Smith added 19 points on seven of 11 shooting while Spencer Dinwiddie chipped in with 18 points. As a team, the Mavericks shot 44 percent from the field and 15 of 37 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense and fell behind by nine points going into halftime, before exploding for 38 points in the third quarter to erase an early 13-point deficit, before escaping with the narrow win thanks to a clutch 3-pointer from Spencer Dinwiddie with just 11.6 seconds left on the clock.
Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have lost six of their last 11 games overall, but they will be eager to build on their current four-game win streak after destroying the Magic in a 150-108 road win last night. Kyrie Irving led the team with a career-high 60 points on 20 of 31 shooting, Kevin Durant added 19 points with seven assists while Patty Mills chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the Nets shot a sizzling 60 percent from the field and 16 of 27 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 48 points in the first quarter to take the big lead early and they just never took their foot off the gas as they rode the hot hand of Irving on a career scoring night.
Looking at the betting trends, the Mavericks are 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven road games, 7-0 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Nets are 4-21-1 ATS in their last 26 home games, 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on zero days’ rest and 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 games against a team with a winning record.
Head to head, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall.
The Mavericks will again be without Theo Pinson, Marquese Chriss, Reggie Bullock and Tim Hardaway Jr. while the Nets will be without Kyrie Irving and LaMarcus Aldridge, while Cam Thomas and Seth Curry are both listed as day to day. You can make an argument for either side here as the Nets could still easily win without Irving, but the Mavericks are 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven road games while the Nets are 4-21-1 ATS in their last 26 home games. With the line so short, I’m going with the Mavericks to get the job done here.
