The Mavericks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Jazz are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 18-38-4 ATS in their last 60 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Mavericks last 6 road games. The under is 5-2 in Jazz last 7 overall. The Mavericks are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Utah and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Utah Jazz have issues offensively and the hamstring injury to Mitchell isn't encouraging, but this total seems very low given the numbers we're used to seeing in these playoffs. The Dallas Mavericks have also seen the over hit in eight of their last 11 games. The Jazz are also usually better at home, where they average 116.4 points on 48 percent shooting from the field. I'll take my chances with the over, even if the Jazz have issues scoring. This total is just really low.
