The Mavericks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite. The under is 5-2 in Mavericks last 7 overall. The over is 6-2 in Suns last 8 games as a favorite. The Mavericks are 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Phoenix and 6-17 ATS in the last 23 meetings.
The home team has comfortably won and covered all four meetings this series, and the Phoenix Suns win at home by an average of 8.8 points, so you can understand why this line is what it is. However, the Dallas Mavericks have found something where they slow the game down, get after it defensively and have Luka bully his way in the paint instead of settling for so many jumpers. The first two games, the Mavs tried to outscore the Suns, and it led to Phoenix pushing the pace and topping 120 points. The Mavericks played with a different tempo the last two games and while you can't have as much confidence in their role players on the road, I do think this series is closer to a toss up at this point than anything else. Give me the points.
