The Mavericks are 13-3-1 against the spread in their last 17 trips to Oklahoma City and 5-2 against the number in their last seven games overall versus the Thunder.

NBA PLAYOFF VALUE PLAY: DALLAS MAVERICKS +7.5
The under is 6-0-1 in the last seven meetings between these two teams and 7-1-1 in the last nine meetings between these two teams when the game is played in St. Louis. The under is 2-0-3 in the Blues’ last five home games, 3-0-2 in their last five playoff games as a favorite and 12-3-6 in the Blues last 21 Saturday games. Given the goalie and defensive play that should go on tonight in the Scottrade Center, the total could be set at 2 and the under would still be a value.
TOTAL VALUE PLAY: UNDER 5
The Giants are just 1-4 in Tim Lincecum’s last five home starts, 1-5 in this last six starts overall and 0-4 in his last four outings versus NL West Division foes. The Padres haven’t had much luck against Lincecum in the recent past, going just 1-5 versus the Giants when “The Freak” is on the hill. But both the Giants and Lincecum are in a bit of a funk and San Francisco’s offensive production has tailed off since the start of the season. Look for the Padres to possibly steal another game in ‘Frisco tonight.
