The Washington Wizards play host to the Dallas Mavericks at the Capital One Arena on Friday night.

The Dallas Mavericks have been in red-hot form as they’ve won five of their last six games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win after sneaking past the Cavaliers in a 120-112 road win on Wednesday. Luka Doncic led the team with 35 points, nine rebounds and 13 assists, Dorian Finney-Smith drained six 3-pointers to finish with 28 points while Jalen Brunson chipped in with 18 points and six assists. As a team, the Mavericks shot 52 percent from the field and 16 of 42 from the 3-point line as they trailed going into halftime, but they didn’t panic and took control of the game with a 30-10 run in the third quarter.  

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have come to life with three wins in their last four games and they will be eager to stay hot after blowing past the Magic in a 127-110 home win on Wednesday. Kristaps Porzingis led the team with 35 points, eight rebounds and three assists, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope added 25 points on 10 of 17 shooting while Rui Hachimura and Daniel Gafford each scored 17 points. As a team, the Wizards shot 51 percent from the field and 12 of 36 from the 3-point line as they worked their way back from an early 12-point deficit, before they exploded for 41 points in the fourth quarter to make it a blowout in the end.

Looking at the betting trends, the Mavericks are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games, 5-0 ATS in their last five games as a favorite and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. The Wizards are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games as an underdog, 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games and 12-26-1 ATS in their last 39 games overall.

Head to head, the over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Washington, the Mavericks are 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings overall and the Mavericks are 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings in Washington.

The Mavericks are again without Trey Burke and Sterling Brown while Frank Ntilikina is listed as questionable for this one. The Wizards are shorthanded themselves as they are still without Vernon Carey Jr and Kyle Kuzma. The Mavericks are coming into this game as the team in better form and they will be full of confidence after taking down the Cavaliers in their last outing. The Wizards have woken up with some decent play in their last four games, but the Mavericks have so much more to play for at this stage of the season and I think they can continue their strong run with another win and cover here.
