Mavericks are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. loss, 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record, Home team is 16-7 ATS last 23 in series,  6-1 ATS in their last 7 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game, 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games following a ATS loss and 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest.

Milwaukee (26-28 SU, 25-29 ATS, 25-27-2 O/U) has been inconsistent this season. They are have now lost three straight games and seven of their last eight. The Bucks fell at home to Atlanta, 103-102 on Saturday, giving 4.5. Dallas (25-30 SU, 32-23 ATS, 34 20-1 O/U) has won three of the last four, but fell at home to the Lakers on Sunday, 103-99, giving 3. If the Dallas Mavericks want to grab the last playoff spot in the West, they have to win games like these. After this game, they play seven of the next eight games on the road. Even though Dallas lost to the Lakers, Dirk Nowitzki was back to his old self, scoring 30 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. He also has 25 against New Orleans on Friday, which may show that Nowitzki is finally back to normal after missing the first 27 games after recuperating from knee surgery. Dallas also saw them return of Chris Kaman, who missed 10 games with a concussion. Expect a more motivated Mavs squad to take care of business at home.
