In this all-Western showdown, two teams sitting on opposite sides of the conference table are clashing, when the fourth Portland Trail Blazers (43-27), who have lost only once in their last 5 games, are hosting the third-worse Dallas Mavericks (28-42), who on the other hand have won once in their last 9 and are looking to bounce back.

Spread: Portland Trail Blazers -10

Total: +216.5

Portland Trail Blazers have a 43-27 record (40-30 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 4th place of the West. They have won four of their last five matches and in their last game they won at home against the Pacers with a 106-98 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Damian Lillard with 26.2 ppg, adding 4.5 boards and a team high 6.6 dimes per game. He is followed by CJ McCollum with 21.3 ppg and 4 boards per game but he is out with an injury.

Dallas Mavericks have a 28-42 record (38-30-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the West. They have lost eight of their last nine matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Pelicans with a 125-129 score in overtime, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Luka Doncic with 21.1 ppg, adding 7.5 boards and 5.8 dimes per game. He is followed by Tim Hardaway Jr. with 15.6 ppg and 3.4 boards per game.

In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Mavericks lead the Blazers 2-1 wins with each team having won at home. Blazers have a 26-9 home record, while the Mavericks are 6-28 on the road. Blazers are better offensively, scoring 113.9 ppg to Mavs’ 108.2, while Mavericks are better defensively, allowing 109.9 ppg to Blazers’ 110.3. Blazers have better percentages both in field goals (46.4% to 44.6%) and in 3-pointers (35.8% to 34.1%). They are better both in boards grabbed (47.7 to 45.5) and in turnovers committed (13.5 to 14.2), while both teams are almost equal in dimes made (22.9 to 22.8). Blazers are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -10 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home victory.
