Dallas Mavericks Fantasy Spin
Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) will play on Monday vs. the Clippers. The heavy favorite for rookie of the year will be back after a two-game absence. There's no word of restrictions, but the Mavs will be monitoring him closely. Fantasy owners should obviously deploy him for a 3-game week, and those of you who picked up Jalen Brunson can start looking for alternatives on the wire.
Los Angeles Clippers Fantasy Spin
Wilson Chandler (quad) and Luc Mbah a Moute (knee) have been ruled out for Monday's game against the Mavericks. Chandler has yet to make his Clippers' debut since being traded to Los Angeles, and Mbah a Moute hasn't seen the floor since October. Both these guys are irrelevant, and it'll be Danilo Gallinari and JaMychal Green continuing to hold down the fort at the four-spot in their absence.
NBA Betting Trends
The Mavericks are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous contest.
The Clippers have failed to cover in five of their last seven home games when facing a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400.
The home team is 6-1-1 against the spread in the last eight meetings between these two teams, which coincides with the fact that the Mavericks are just 2-5-1 against the number in their last eight meetings with the Clippers in Los Angeles. The Mavericks are also winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall while the Clippers have covered the spread in four straight games coming off a loss.
