Los Angeles enters play with a 6-4 record over its last 10 games but is just 4-6 against the spread during that stretch. The Clippers are also 35-37 against the number on the season, including 18-20 against the spread on the road this year.
Dallas has won six of its last 10 games and is 5-5 against the spread during that span. The Mavericks own a winning record against the spread at 38-32 and are 22-14 at the betting window this season at home.
