NBA Predictions: Can Lakers secure victory at Mavericks? 2/10/18

Are the Los Angeles Lakers the right play for bettors tonight when they play at the Dallas Mavericks? Tip-off is at 8:30PM ET.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Los Angeles. As of Saturday afternoon, 70 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Lakers. Online wager info also shows 51 percent of public bets siding with the under.

Who We Like: The Lakers won the first meeting by a score of 107-101 in overtime in Dallas last month. Dallas is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings, while the under is 7-3. Los Angeles enters on a four-game winning streak and is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games. The under has gone 6-4. Dallas has lost two in a row and seven of its last eight. The Mavs are 4-6 ATS in their last 10 contests. The under has gone 7-3. 

The Lakers will play their first game with trade acquisition Isaiah Thomas, who will come off the bench but should see a healthy amount of minutes. The trade of Larry Nance Jr. frees up more minutes for rookie Kyle Kuzma, while dealing Jordan Clarkson sheds an albatross of a contract and will allow more minutes for Josh Hart in addition to Thomas. I like the way LA is playing right now with an efficient offense to go with a surprisingly good defense. As an underdog against a weak opponent, I like the Lakers in this spot.
