Mavericks vs Thunder prediction

The Mavericks have nothing to play for as they're locked into the fifth seed and have a series with the Clippers line up. Luka and Kyrie have already been ruled out. The Thunder are playing for the top seed in the West and will play to win. OKC should be favored big for obvious reasons. However, this line is nuts as you don't see -19 often regardless of the circumstances. While the Thunder are playing to win and the Mavs are resting players, the Dallas players getting time in this game will finally have a chance to prove themselves. They'll be playing hard. This line is too steep for my taste. Give me the Mavs and the points.
