NBA Predictions: Will Mavericks Cover Spread vs. Warriors as Dog? 1/3/18

Will the Dallas Mavericks cover the point spread against the mighty Warriors tonight when the two teams face each other at 8:30 p.m. ET?

WHO ODDSMAKERS LIKE: Golden State. According to oddsmakers  from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Warriors are now 7-point road favorites versus the Mavericks, who opened as 10.5-point home underdogs. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 214 but has climbed all the way up to 219.5.

Bet Tonight’s NBA Game

WHO PUBLIC BETTORS LIKE: Golden State. As of Wednesday afternoon, the Warriors are receiving 92% of the betting tickets and 99% of the money, although as of this writing the spread has only been available for a short period of time.

INJURY REPORT: Draymond Green is questionable tonight with an ankle injury and so is Zaca Pachulia, who is sick. On the other side, Nerlens Noel is out with a thumb injury, Seth Curry is out with a shin injury, and Dorian Finney-Smith is out with a knee injury.

OUR PREDICTION: Dallas. The Warriors are just 9-24 against the spread in their last 33 road games versus an opponent with a losing home record, are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games playing on three or more days of rest, and are winless at the betting window in their last four games following a win of more than 10 points.

On the other side, the Mavericks have covered in four straight games, are 5-1 against the number in their last six home games, and are 10-2 at the betting window in their last 12 games versus Western Conference opponents. They’ve also covered the spread in seven of their last nine games coming off a win.
