Dallas Mavericks vs Oklahoma City Thunder prediction

This line is telling me the Dallas Mavericks will be sitting key players after playing last night. I know the Thunder are great, at home and have the rest advantage, but double-digit chalk? This line is insane if we're being honest. The Thunder have been covering machines with their 39-26 ATS record, but double-digit points? The Mavs aren't the Hornets. I'd check the injury report before locking anything in, but assuming Luka and or Kyrie play, I'm grabbing the points with the Mavs easily.
