Spread: Brooklyn Nets -5
Brooklyn Nets have a 32-33 record (35-30 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Pistons in the 6th place of the East. They have three consecutive losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Heat with an 88-117 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by D’Angelo Russell with 20.5 ppg, adding a team high 6.8 dimes per game. He is followed by Spencer Dinwiddie with 17 ppg and 5 dimes per game.
Dallas Mavericks have a 27-35 record (35-26-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the West. They have lost six of their last seven matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Grizzlies with an 81-111 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Luka Doncic with 21 ppg, adding 7.2 boards and 5.6 dimes per game. He is followed by Tim Hardaway Jr. with 16.2 ppg and 3.2 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Mavericks won at home with a 119-113 score. Nets have a 18-16 home record, while the Mavericks are 6-24 on the road. Nets are better offensively, scoring 111.7 ppg to Mavs’ 108.3, while Mavericks are better defensively, allowing 109.2 ppg to Nets’ 112.8 ppg. Nets have better percentages both in field goals (45% to 44.6%) and in 3-pointers (35.2% to 34.3%). They are also better in dimes made (24 to 22.7) and in boards grabbed (45.7 to 45.3), while both teams are almost equal in turnovers committed (14.4 to 14.5). Nets are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -5 spread and expect them to beat the odds against a weak on the road Mavericks team.
