NBA Betting Trends
The Mavericks are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Dallas is 12-3-1 ATS in its last 16 road games.
The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last five Friday games. Phoenix is 6-2 ATS in its last eight games played on one day of rest.
The Mavericks had a rough going of it against LA, which kind of shows they are a player or two away from being a top team in the Western Conference. But with Doncic they always have a shot as he is becoming a star before our own eyes at the age of 20. With Phoenix struggling lately, I like the Mavs to bounce back from their rough showing and get a win behind their fearless young leader.
