Dallas had its three-game winning streak snapped last time out, as it suffered a 112-97 setback to the Sacramento Kings as four-point road favorites Monday, while going OVER the betting total for a second consecutive contest. The Mavericks are led offensively by guard Monta Ellis and forward Dirk Nowitzki, who are averaging 21.5 and 21.1 points per game respectively, which is important to consider when making your NBA betting picks. The team is 4-7 SU on the road during the 2013 campaign, including a 2-5 mark versus Western Conference opponents. Dallas is 0-2 ATS off a upset loss as a favorite.
The Mavericks rank among the top 10 in the NBA in averaging 103.4 points per game, as they shoot 46 percent from the floor. After dropping six of its first eight games away from home, Dallas will look to wrap up this four-game trip with three victories. “We were doing great on the road,” commented Mavericks guard Jose Calderon. The franchise has dropped three of the last four meetings in this series when played in the Bay Area.
Golden State has alternated wins and losses over its last four games, as it attempts to bounce back from a disappointing 115-111 setback to the Charlotte Bobcats as six-point road favorites Monday, while going OVER the betting total of 194.5. The Warriors are 6-2 at Oracle Arena this season, which is important to consider when looking over the NBA betting lines. Four of five probable starters are averaging in double figures, with point guard Stephen Curry leading the way at 23.6 points a contest. Golden State is 0-3 ATS as home favorites of 3.5 to 6 points this season.
The Warriors took the season series by winning two of three games against the Mavericks a season ago—the first time they’ve accomplished that feat since sweeping them in 2006-07. Golden State has compiled a 15-6 record in the month of December dating back to last season, with only the Los Angeles Clippers having more victories in that situation and time frame.
Sports bettors will likely back the Mavericks due to their 22-7 ATS mark in their last 29 games following a SU loss.
