Tonight’s schedule is somewhat lacking as each game features at least one team that is 9 games below .500. The featured game looks to be the New York Knicks hosting the Dallas Mavericks at 7:30PM ET. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, The Mavericks are favored on the road, as they have odds of -3.5 points. The over/under total for the game has been set at 204 points. Dallas comes in winners of three of their last four while New York has lost five of its last six. New York picked up a 92-80 win at Dallas back on Jan. 5, and the home team has covered in five of the last six in this series.

A pair of 19-win teams also meet today as the Utah Jazz host the Boston Celtics at 9PM ET. Oddsmakers see the Jazz as the favorite at home, giving them odds of -3 points against the Celtics. Both teams come in cold as Boston has lost four straight and Utah three straight. Both teams are also just 1-3 against the spread in their last four. Boston has been dominant in this recent series, winning six straight over the Jazz while going 5-0-1 against the spread in that span.

One game that has some mild interest sees the Detroit Pistons hosting the Golden State Warriors at 7:30PM ET. Oddsmakers haven’t set a spread for this game as of yet because of injury questions to the Warriors’ David Lee and Andrew Bogut. Golden State comes into this game winners of three straight and they are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five. Detroit is going in a different direction, as they have lost four of their last five and are just 1-4 ATS in that span. Golden State has won five straight against Detroit and the Warriors are 3-1 ATS in the last four in this series.
