The Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers meet Sunday in NBA action at the Moda Center. Let’s take a look at the odds, history, injuries and give out a pick for this game.


The Portland Trail Blazers are 6 point favorites and -225 on the ML price. The over / under is set at 227.5 points.

Last Meeting

The Portland Trail Blazers beat the Mavericks yesterday by a score of 136-119 as 4 point favorites. It was the Trail Blazer's first win over the Mavs since March 2021. The home team has now won 4 straight meetings.


The Mavericks will be without Dorian Finney-Smith, Josh Green and Maxi Kleber. Christian Wood is questionable, and Luka Doncic hasn’t played on the end of back to backs this year. The Trail Blazers will be without Justise Winslow and Nassir Little.


The Mavericks are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 7-2 in Mavericks last 9 road games. The under is 8-2 in Trail Blazers last 10 overall. The Mavericks are 15-5-1 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Portland and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.


The Portland Trail Blazers have been underachieving lately, and it's not easy to beat the same team twice in as many days. However, the Trail Blazers are at home where they play their best ball and Doncic usually sits out on the end of back to backs. That's the reason this line has flipped in such a heavy direction of Portland. The Dallas Mavericks are dealing with injuries as it is, and not having Doncic makes this team a lottery roster. The Portland Trail Blazers should win this game rather comfortably.
