Cavaliers 106, Mavericks 103
The CAVALIERS (+110) are worth playing as short ‘dogs on the road, as they look to bounce back after falling against the Spurs in the front end of the Texas 2-step.
The Mavericks (-130) have won just 5 of the past 12 games overall, and they’re just 4-7-1 ATS during the span, too. It’s a great spot for a bounce-back for Cleveland.
The CAVALIERS +2.5 (-115) are a decent play if you think this will be a one-possession game in favor of the Mavericks. However, if you like Cleveland, it’s a better value to play it straight up.
UNDER 213.5 (-105) is the best play in this battle in the Metroplex.
The Cavs hit a rare Under in San Antonio, allowing 112 points to the Spurs, of all teams. Cleveland is the No. 1 scoring defense in the NBA, yielding just 105.1 PPG. It entered San Antonio on an 8-0 Under run.
The Mavs rank 7th in scoring defense, allowing just 110.1 PPG, and they are 19th in offense with 111.9 PPG. Look for this to be a more defensive battle.
