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.
