Who the Public Likes: As of Sunday afternoon, 52 percent of public bets have been placed on the Mavericks.

Injury Report: Knicks forward Michael Beasley left the last game with an ankle sprain and it is unknown if he will play tonight. Tim Hardaway Jr. is out until the end of January with a stress reaction in his leg. For the Mavericks, Josh McRoberts has yet to play this season with a knee issue and he is questionable today. Nerlens Noel is out until early February after thumb surgery. Dorian Finney-Smith is out indefinitely with knee tendinitis. Seth Curry is out indefinitely with a stress reaction in his left tibia.

Who the Trends Like: New York is 1-5 ATS in its last six games against teams with a losing straight up record. The over is 4-0 in the last four Dallas games overall. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings.

Who We Like: The Knicks have lost six of their last seven games and star Kristaps Porzingis said he was exhausted prior to the last loss. Not a good situation on a road trip. Dallas has suffered a couple close home losses, but had won four in a row before that. I'll roll with Dirk Nowitzki, Harrison Barnes and the hosts against any team where their star player is admitting mental and physical exhaustion.
