Two teams sitting on opposite sides of the Western Conference table are clashing, when the defending champions and first Golden State Warriors (49-22), who have lost only once in their last 5 games, are hosting the third-worse Dallas Mavericks (28-44), who are on a free fall having won only once in their last eleven games.

Spread: Golden State Warriors -15.5
Golden State Warriors have a 49-22 record (30-40-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the first 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 112-89 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Stephen Curry with 27.8 ppg, adding 5.3 boards and 5.3 dimes per game but he will be resting in this game. He is followed by Kevin Durant with 27 ppg, 5.7 dimes and 6.6 boards per game.
Dallas Mavericks have a 28-44 record (39-31-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the West. They have lost 10 of their last 11 matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Kings with a 100-116 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Luka Doncic with 21 ppg, adding 7.5 boards and 5.7 dimes per game. He is followed by Tim Hardaway Jr. with 15.5 ppg and 3.2 boards per game but he is out for the season.
Warriors lead the Mavericks 2-1 wins so far this season, having won the previous home game by 4 points. Warriors have a 25-10 home record, while the Mavericks are 6-30 on the road. Warriors are better offensively, scoring 117.6 ppg to Mavs’ 108.2 ppg, while Mavericks are better defensively, allowing 110.2 ppg to Warriors’ 111.4. Warriors have better percentages both in field goals (48.7% to 44.6%) and in 3-pointers (37.9% to 34.1%). They are also better in dimes made (29.2 to 22.8), in turnovers committed (13.7 to 14) and in boards grabbed (46.3 to 44.8). Warriors are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -15.5 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds as the guests will surely force a closer game than that.
