The Indiana Pacers travel to Dallas Friday to take on the Mavericks and Bill Young says that Dallas will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the line at Dallas –12.5.

Young writes: The Dallas Mavericks have benefited from a favorable schedule lately and that trend continues Friday when the Indiana Pacers visit. The Mavericks have consecutive blowout wins over New Jersey, New York and Charlotte by an average of 24.6 points. The Mavericks blow out the poor teams and really struggle with the best teams in this league. The Indiana Pacers don’t stand a chance at staying within 12 points of the Mavericks tonight. Indiana is 0-8 ATS off a home win scoring 110 or more points this season. Indiana is 1-11 ATS in all games following a home win this season. Take Dallas and lay the points.
