NBA News and Notes Wednesday 12/16

Dallas (18-7, 13-12 ATS) at Oklahoma City (12-11, 14-9 ATS)

The Mavericks, who are in the midst of playing six of seven games at home, make their one road trip during this stretch when they stop at the Ford Center, where they’ll try to extend a four-game winning streak and hand the Thunder their third straight defeat.

Dallas held off New Orleans 94-90 on Monday, but came up way short as an 8½-point home chalk. Although the Mavericks have won four in a row – with the three of the victories coming by a total of six points – they’re mired in a 2-7 ATS funk. On the positive end, Dallas pummeled Miami 106-93 as a 1½-point road chalk on Friday to improve to 9-4 SU and ATS on the highway this season.

Oklahoma City is coming off near-identical losses to Cleveland on Sunday (102-89, falling as a 3½-point home underdog) and Denver on Monday (102-93, cashing as a 10-point road pup). Monday’s setback to the Nuggets snapped the Thunder’s string of 17 straight games without consecutive SU defeats. Oklahoma City has alternated SU and ATS wins and losses in its last six home games.

Although the Thunder covered in the loss at Denver on Monday, the SU winner is still 21-2 ATS in their 23 games this season, including 9-0 ATS in their last nine at home. Meanwhile, the winner has cashed in all 13 of Dallas’ roadies this year.

The host has won six consecutive meetings in this rivalry, but Oklahoma City is 5-0-1 ATS during this stretch, all as an underdog. Going back a little further, though, the visitor is on a 5-2-1 ATS roll when these teams square off, and Dallas is still 6-2-1 ATS in its last nine road games against the Thunder franchise going back to their days as the Seattle SuperSonics.

Dallas’ ATS slumps including 2-7 overall, 1-5 against the Western Conference, 2-6 versus Northwest Division foes, 1-5 as a favorite and 9-19 when laying less than five points on the highway, but the Mavericks’ 7-2 ATS streak on the road is buoyed by a 21-8 ATS mark in their last 29 Wednesday contests.

Oklahoma City is 1-4 ATS in its last five after getting just one day of rest, 3-9 ATS in its last 12 after a spread-cover, 3-7 in its last 10 as a home ‘dog and 1-4 ATS in its last five when catching less than five points at home, but it is on positive pointspread tears of 4-1 against the Western Conference, 12-4 against the Southwest Division, 5-1 on Wednesday and 38-16 after a SU defeat. Also, from a pointspread perspective, the Thunder haven’t cashed in more than two straight games all season, but they haven’t had back-to-back non-covers all year, either.

The Mavs are on “over” runs of 7-1 on the highway, 9-3 against winning teams, 10-4 after one day of rest, 5-2 following a SU win 4-1 as a road favorite and 13-4 when laying less than five points. The over is also 5-2-1 in the Thunder’s last eight home games and 12-5 in their last 17 after a SU defeat, but otherwise Oklahoma City is on “under” runs of 3-0-1 overall, 4-0 against the Western Conference and 10-3-1 as a home pup. Likewise, the under in this rivalry is on runs of 4-1 overall and 4-0 in Oklahoma City.

ATS ADVANTAGE: NONE


Houston (14-10, 15-9 ATS) at Denver (18-7, 13-12 ATS)

The Nuggets shoot for their third straight victory overall and fifth straight win at home when they host the Rockets at the Pepsi Center.

Houston is coming off Tuesday’s 107-96 rout of Detroit as a 5½-point home favorite. The Rockets are 6-2 SU and ATS in their last eight games, including 4-2 SU and ATS in their last six on the road. In fact, Houston has won six of its last nine as a visitor, going 7-2 ATS. Rick Adleman’s squad has topped triple digits in nine of its last 13 road games.

Carmelo Anthony scored 31 points, leading five Denver players in double-digit scoring in Monday’s 102-93 home win over the Thunder. However, the Nuggets fell short as a 10-point favorite, their fourth straight non-cover (all as a favorite) following a 9-3 ATS run. George Karl’s squad is now 11-1 at the Pepsi Center (7-5 ATS), averaging 115 ppg (48.7 percent shooting) while allowing 102.1 ppg (45.7 percent). Denver has scored more than 100 points in all 12 home contests.

The Rockets have won three straight in this rivalry (2-1 ATS), including a 97-95 win in Denver as a four-point road underdog in the final meeting of last season. Prior to that contest, though, the host had won seven straight series meetings going back to the 2007-08 campaign (5-2 ATS). Houston is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 battles with the Nuggets, going 5-2 ATS in its last seven visits to the Pepsi Center.

In addition to cashing in five of seven overall and seven of nine on the road, the Rockets are on ATS tears of 6-0 against Northwest Division opponents, 5-0 as an underdog, 4-0 as a road pup and 6-1 on Wednesday. The Nuggets’ 0-4 ATS drought is balanced by positive pointspread stretches of 15-7 at home, 27-11 against Western Conference foes, 27-10 against Southwest Division opponents, 6-2 on Wednesday, 25-12 versus teams with a winning record, 43-15-1 as a favorite of 5 to 10½ points and 36-14-1 as a favorite in that range at home.

Houston soared over the total last night against Detroit, ending an 8-0 “under” stretch. Still, the Rockets are on low-scoring sprees of 6-0 on the road, 5-0 against Western Conference opponents, 8-3 versus the Northwest Division, 4-1 on Wednesday, 4-1 as a ‘dog and 10-4 when playing back-to-back nights. Denver carries “under” trends of 5-2 overall, 4-1 at home, 5-1 when playing on one day of rest and 4-1 against Western Conference competition. Conversely, three of the last four meetings between these clubs have gone over the total.

ATS ADVANTAGE: HOUSTON and UNDER
