Mavericks vs. Raptors Prediction
Is the under a good bet to cash tonight when the Raptors host the Mavericks at 7:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Raptors are now 4-point home favorites versus the Mavericks after opening as a 5-point favorite. The total, meanwhile, is down to 196 after opening at 200.
Dallas enters play having won six of its last 10 games and is also 6-4 against the spread during that time frame. The Mavericks own a winning record against the spread on the year at 36-29, but are just 13-16 against the number on the road this season.
Toronto has dropped back-to-back games but has still won six of its last 10 games entering play tonight. The Raptors are just 4-6 against the spread over their last 10, but are 35-30 at the betting window this season and are 17-14 against the number at home.
OUR PREDICTION: The under has been a great bet when these two teams meet, cashing in four of the last five meetings overall and going 7-2-1 in the last 10 games between these two teams in Toronto. The under is also 9-2-1 in the Mavericks' last 12 games overall and is a perfect 4-0 in their last four road games. On the other side, the under is 9-3 in the Raptors' last 12 games overall and 4-1 in their last five home games.
