The Trail Blazers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Mavericks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Trail Blazers last 8 overall. The over is 5-0 in Mavericks last 5 overall. The Trail Blazers are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings.

The Dallas Mavericks aren't a team I'm running to the window to lay massive chalk with, but they're still fighting for seeding, they have the rest advantage here, and they're at home. The Portland Trail Blazers are on the end of a back to back, and they're fielding the worst roster in the league while getting smacked nightly. The Trail Blazers entered last night, losing their last five games by an average of 11.4 points, and then lost to the Pelicans by 31 points. It's hideous in Portland right now. Give me the Mavs and the chalk, but boy, this line is no joke.
