The Rockets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Mavericks are 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 home games and 9-20-2 ATS in their last 31 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Rockets last 7 Thursday games. The over is 4-1 in Mavericks last 5 home games. The Rockets are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Dallas.

The Dallas Mavericks could be in a bit of a letdown spot after their historic comeback over the Knicks and the historic triple double from Luka. Also, while the Mavs are the better team here, they don't comfortably win most nights, and they're only winning in the favorite role by an average of 4.3 points. This is a ton of points. I'll take a shot with the Houston Rockets and the free buckets.
