Mavericks vs. Kings Prediction
The Mavericks have been a great road play of late and bettors will have an opportunity to take Dallas once more on the road when the team visits the Kings tonight at 6:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Kings are 2-point home favorites over the Mavericks while the over/under is sitting at 216.5 points. Dallas enters play having lost eight of 10 and is 5-5 against the spread, while Sacramento is just 3-7 over its last 10 and 4-5-1 against the number.
The Mavs are red-hot at the betting window in various situations. For starters, they're 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall and are a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four road games. They're also 4-0 against the number in their last four games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400 and have also covered in all five of their last five games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous contest.
Dallas played hard against Golden State before finally falling 128-120 in its last game but there shouldn't be any residual effects from the loss. The Mavs had Saturday off and while this is their third road game in a row, they've been on the West Coast so the schedule isn't factoring against them tonight.
As for the Kings, they're 3-1-1 against the spread in their lat five games but they're a brutal 1-7 against the number in their last eight home games. They're also 6-16-1 ATS in their last 23 games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous contest and are 2-7 ATS in their last nine versus Southwest opponents.
