OUR PREDICTION: The Mavericks have been a great bet of late, covering in all four of their last four games overall and going 7-0 against the number in their last seven home games when taking on a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400. They're also 13-3 against the number in their last 16 home games versus an opponent with a losing road record, are 4-1 ATS in their last five conference games and have cashed in eight of their last 10 games playing on only one day of rest. The Thunder, meanwhile, are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six road games.
