Milwaukee Bucks vs Dallas Mavericks prediction

The Dallas Mavericks are expected to be without Kyrie for this game, but they will have Luka, and that's good enough for me. The Milwaukee Bucks continue to struggle defensively, they don't string wins together, and they're 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games. The Bucks are 18-29-1 ATS on the season overall. With Luka, the Mavs are a scary offensive team that could steal a game like this if he goes off. As Ive done all year, I'm fading the Bucks most nights in the favorite role. Give me the Mavericks and the free buckets.
