The Dallas Mavericks have been one of the surprise teams of the season, but you have to question whether or not they are good enough to hang with a team as good as the Spurs have been this season. San Antonio are going to be the obvious straight up pick in this one, but can Nowitzki and his troops make a game of it.

Why bet on the San Antonio Spurs

It has not been that difficult to try and convince people to bet on the Spurs (40-8) this season, as they have been doing a pretty good job of that all on their own. They have cast aside just about everyone in their path, and have an astonishing 22-4 record against teams in the Western Conference. That domination has also carried over into their divisional games, where they are a solid 6-2 so far this season. They have had two prior engagements with the Mavericks this season, and they came away with the win in both of them. The Spurs are 8-2 in their last 10 games, and have put together a 14-6 record versus teams with a winning record. San Antonio are averaging 104.5 PPG, and are giving up 91.2 PPG, which is a league best.

Why bet on the Dallas Mavericks

Yes, the Mavericks (28-23) have lost both of their previous meetings with San Antonio this season, but that does not automatically mean that they will lose this one, too. Dallas have won 4 of their last 5 games on home court, and have a 15-8 record there, overall. If they need a reason why San Antonio might struggle in this one, they need only look at the fact that all of the Spurs defeats have come on the road this season. The majority of the defeats that San Antonio have taken this year has been against teams with a winning record. This is most certainly not a lost cause scenario for the Mavericks. Dallas are averaging 100.6 PPG, and are giving up 101.0 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

If you have seen the Spurs playing this season, you will know that they are ridiculously efficient on most nights. They comfortably won both previous games against the Mavericks, and I just don’t see Dallas have enough to buck that trend, even with the home court advantage.
