Mavericks at Thunder: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Mavericks 114, Thunder 105
Money line (ML)
MAVERICKS (-275) is our pick here as they are coming off a win against the Spurs on Wednesday night. Dallas has been on a bit of a hot streak as of late, winning 10 of their last 12 games.
Meanwhile, the Thunder have now lost seven of their last nine games against Western Conference opponents. Expect this game to be close throughout, but for the Mavericks to ultimately win.
Against the spread (ATS)
MAVERICKS -6.5 (-110) are only three basket favorites over the Thunder despite going 5-2 ATS in their last seven games. In fact, the Mavericks have had the Thunder’s number for a while now as they have covered in eight of their previous ten meetings.
We expect the Thunder to keep this game close for a while, but for Dallas to ultimately win by 8-10 points. Look for them to pull away late and cover this spread.
OVER 218.5 (-110) is the play here despite the Under being a popular pick with Oklahoma City as of late.
The Under has actually hit in six of the last eight games for the Thunder as they currently have the fourth-worst offense in the NBA. However, look for the Mavericks to score into the 110s, which should allow this Over to hit with relative ease.
