The Mavericks are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games and 10-21-2 ATS in their last 33 games overall. The Rockets are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Mavericks last 4 overall. The over is 6-0 in Rockets last 6 Monday games. The Mavericks are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Houston. 

The Dallas Mavericks aren't a team I'm thrilled to lay big chalk with, as a lot of their games come down to the wire. However, the Houston Rockets are looking more and more like the team we expected to see as they've lost 8 of their last 9 tries, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 10 points. It's hard to back the Rockets with confidence. Give me the Mavs and the chalk.
