Mavs on 4 Game Losing Streak
The Dallas Mavericks head to the West Coast this Monday night in a late 10:30 p.m. tip against the Los Angeles Clippers on NBA TV. BetAnySports has the Clippers as 3.5-point home favorites with the total set at 230 points.
The Mavericks bring a four-game losing streak into Monday night’s contest both straight-up and against the spread. Going back to a loss to Milwaukee at home on Feb. 8, they are 1-5 both SU and ATS in their last six games with the total going OVER or ending as a PUSH in four of those contests. Dallas is 26-33 SU overall, but it improves to 34-24-1 ATS. It has a 22-14 record this season ATS at BetAnySports when closing as an underdog.
Dirk Nowitzki was able to turn back the clock a bit in Sunday’s loss with a season-high 15 points. Tim Hardaway Jr. posted 21 points in the losing effort as the Mavericks’ top scorer. He helped fill the void left by Luka Doncic, who has missed his last two starts with an ankle injury. Doncic has been the team’s leading scorer this season with 20.7 points per game, but he remains day-to-day for this contest.
Clippers Look to Bounce Back From Denver Shellacking
The Clippers were on the wrong end of Sunday’s 123-96 loss to Denver closing as nine-point road underdogs on BetAnySports’ betting line. The total stayed UNDER 235 points in that game after going OVER in their previous four outings. Los Angeles is 16-12 SU on its home court this season as part of an overall record of 33-28. It is also 33-28 ATS with a 15-13 record ATS at home. The Clippers are a profitable 21-10 this season ATS when closing as favorites.
LA traded Tobias Harris to Philadelphia earlier in February, so Lou Williams is now the team’s top scorer with 19.9 PPG. He put up a game-high 24 points in Sunday’s losing effort with the Clippers going 30-for 87 from the field and just 3-for-21 from three-point range. This was a far cry from a team shooting percentage of 47.0 from the field and 38.3 from outside the perimeter. Los Angeles is averaging 113.9 points a game which is ranked seventh in the NBA.
Even if Doncic is able to go, Dallas will be hard-pressed to keep this game closer than the current 5.5-point spread. The Clippers should shoot the ball much better on Monday night with the game being played on their home court.
