The Dallas Mavericks pay a visit to the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday night.

The Dallas Mavericks have been in red-hot form as they’ve won eight of their last nine games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after outlasting the Nets in a 113-111 road win on Wednesday. Luka Doncic led the team with 37 points, nine rebounds and nine assists, Spencer Dinwiddie added 22 points while Jalen Brunson chipped in with 18 points. As a team, the Mavericks shot 49 percent from the field and 12 of 34 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble after scoring just 21 points in the third quarter to fall behind by 14 points, but they took over with 34 points in the fourth quarter to escape with the narrow win thanks to Dinwiddie who drained the game-winning 3-pointer with just 1.0 second remaining on the clock.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been in great shape as they’ve won eight of their last 11 games overall and they will be eager to build some momentum after taking down the Cavaliers in a 118-114 road win on Wednesday. Joel Embiid led the team with 35 points, 17 rebounds and five assists, Tyrese Maxey added 25 points, James Harden tallied 21 points with 11 assists while Tobias Harris chipped in with 19 points. As a team, the 76ers shot 51 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line as they went ice-cold in the third quarter where they managed just 13 points to surrender an early 17-point lead, but they made up for it with 33 points in the fourth quarter to escape with the narrow win.

Looking at the betting trends, the Mavericks are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight road games, 7-1 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record and 12-4-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The 76ers are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record, 6-2 ATS in their last eight games against a team above .600 and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four games overall.

Head to head, the under is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Philadelphia and the Mavericks are 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings overall.

The Mavericks will be shorthanded once again as Theo Pinson and Reggie Bullock are both out while Marquese Chriss is listed as questionable. The 76ers will be sweating on the availability of Joel Embiid who is listed as questionable with back soreness. The outcome of this one depends a lot on whether Embiid can suit up or not, so with the injury cloud looming over him, I’m more comfortable taking the Mavericks to stay hot with another win and cover here.
