MAVERICKS KEY TRENDS: The Mavericks are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games coming off a loss but are just 2-6 at the betting window in their last eight road games. They're also 0-4 against the spread in their last four road games versus an opponent with a home winning percentage of greater than .600 and are 0-4 ATS in their last four road games when playing an opponent with a winning home record.

OUR PREDICTION: The over is 6-1 in the Mavericks' last seven games following an ATS loss, are 4-1-1 in their last six games playing on one day of rest, and are 7-3 in their last 10 games versus a team with a winning percentage of .600. On the other side, they're 10-3 in their last 13 games following a win, are 9-4 in their last 13 games playing on one day of rest and is 5-2 in their last seven games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous contest. Utah owns the sixth-best offensive efficiency rating in the NBA and Dallas has a horrible defense. Points shouldn't be an issue tonight.
