The Mavericks are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Suns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Mavericks last 4 overall. The under is 4-0 in Suns last 4 overall. The Mavericks are 3-10 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Phoenix and 7-18 ATS in the last 25 meetings.
The Phoenix Suns should have a considerable edge because they've been the better team all season, and the home team has dominated every game in this series. The home team has won and covered every game. The Dallas Mavericks role players don't shoot the same on the road and the defense slips drastically. However, both teams have had a few days off to rest and the Mavericks do have the best player in this series. For one game, we could easily see Luka put this club on his back and have a chance to steal it late in the fourth quarter. This is a dangerous game for the Suns. I want the points.
