Spread: Washington Wizards -5.5
Washington Wizards have a 26-37 record (28-35 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the East. They have won two of their last three matches and in their last game they won at home against the Timberwolves with a 135-121 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 25.7 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.4 dimes per game. He is followed by John Wall with 20.7 ppg and a team high 8.7 dimes per game but he will miss the rest of the season with an injury.
Dallas Mavericks have a 27-36 record (35-27-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the West. They have lost seven of their last eight matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Nets with an 88-127 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Luka Doncic with 20.9 ppg, adding 7.2 boards and 5.5 dimes per game. He is followed by Tim Hardaway Jr. with 15.4 ppg and 3.3 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Mavericks won at home with a 119-100 score. Wizards have a 17-12 home record, while the Mavericks are 6-25 on the road. Wizards are better offensively, scoring 114 ppg to Mavs’ 107.9 ppg, while Mavericks are better defensively, allowing 109.5 ppg to Wizards’ 116.9. Wizards have a better field goal percentage (46.9% to 44.5%) and both teams have almost identical 3-point percentage (34.4% to 34.2%). Mavericks are better in boards grabbed (45.2 to 41.3), while Wizards are better both in dimes made (26.6 to 23.6) and in turnovers committed (13.9 to 14.5). Wizards are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -5.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds against a weak on the road Mavericks team.
