Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who Public Bettors Like: San Antonio. As of Monday morning, 65% of the betting tickets for tonight's game are on the Spurs to cover the spread.

Injury Report: The Spurs will once again be without Kawhi Leonard, who remains out with a quad injury. Tony Parker (quad) is probable, however, and outside of Leonard the Spurs are reatively healthy.

As for the Mavs, Wesley Matthews is questionable tonight with a calf injury and Nerlens Noel is also 50-50 to play due to a thumb ailment. Dorian Finney-Smith is out with a knee injury and Seth Curry is out due to a shin injury.

OUR PREDICTION: Dallas has covered the spread in four of its last five games against San Antonio and in eight of its last 11 road meetings with the Spurs. The road team has also been profitable in this series, as has the underdog. In the last seven meetings between these two teams, the road team has covered five times. In the last 26 meetings, the underdog has cashed 20 times.

The Spurs are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games coming off a win and are 1-4 at the betting window in their last five games coming off a win of more than 10 points. The Mavericks, meanwhile, are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus Southwest opponents.
