NBA Betting Trends

Dallas

The Mavericks are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games following a loss, but 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a double-digit loss at home.

Brooklyn

The Nets are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight conference games, but 1-4 ATS in their last five home games.

Prediction:

The Nets and Mavs are both struggling right now, but Brooklyn still has some fight for the playoffs while the Mavs are long out of the mix. The Nets still have an offense capable of putting up big points. They average 114 points at home while Dallas scores just 107 on the road. Look for the Brooklyn guards to lead them to a victory and cover over the Mavericks.
