Bet on Mavericks vs. Thunder

A win over a struggling Clippers team doesn't necessarily mean OKC has fixed its issues yet. The Thunder are having a tendency to struggle late in games or against inferior competition. Dallas fits the bill and despite playing on a back-to-back, it should stay within the number against an Oklahoma City squad that is more bark than bite right now.
