The Mavericks (56-37-2 ATS) are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games against an opponent in the Western Conference and are 5-1 SU in their last six against the Warriors. The total has gone OVER in eight of Dallas’ last 11 matches on the road, even as the Mavericks are 6-1 ATS in their last seven contests when playing on the road against the Dubs.

The Dubs (46-43-4 ATS) went 8-0 SU in their last eight matches at home, but were only 1-6 ATS in their last seven games when playing at home against the Mavericks, even as the total has gone UNDER in 13 of Golden State’s last 18 outings played on a Wednesday. Golden State will carry over the momentum of its 4-2 win over Memphis in the conference semifinals after the Dubs finished off the Grizzlies, 110-96, in Game 6 on Friday.

Dallas is also on a high after defying the odds and pulling off a 123-90 blowout win on the road over the top seeded Phoenix Suns in Game 7 on Sunday to complete a 4-3 series victory. The Mavericks will still be led by All-Star guard Luka Doncic, who averaged an impressive 32.6 points in the Phoenix series, but they also need more production from Jalen Brunson (16.3 ppg, 4.8 apg) and Spencer Dinwiddie, who had 30 points in the Game 7 clincher against the Suns, to make the Warriors work on their defense early in the series.

Final Predictions and Picks:

  • Spread —  115 Golden State Warriors  – 104 Dallas Mavericks
  • Over/Under — OVER 214.5 points
