The Mavericks are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Lakers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Mavericks last 5 overall. The under is 8-3-1 in Lakers last 12 overall. The Mavericks are 6-1-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

We know Luka is still out for the Dallas Mavericks, and this line suggests they'll be without Kyrie as well. The Los Angeles Lakers will have AD for this contest, so there's a massive advantage for the home team off the top in terms of health. The Lakers are playing their best ball of the season, which includes winning their last 5 games by an average of 5.2 points, and they need to keep winning to improve their playoff odds. Feels like two teams heading in different directions over the last few weeks. I'll lay the chalk with the Lakers.
