Dallas Mavericks Last 5 Games


The Philadelphia 76ers picked up a big win in Miami last night against the Heat even without superstar Joel Embiid.

The Sixers are 6-4 in their last 10 games and are 4.5 games back from the #1 seed Bucks.

It is looking like Embiid will play tonight, taking the night off last night due to the back-to-back.

The line as it sits right now is telling that Embiid might not play but with the 4 points, it is hard not to take the Sixers in this spot.

The Mavericks have other ideas though and are in need of some wins down the stretch to guarantee their playoff spot.

They currently sit 7th in the West but only 2 games separate them and the 4th place Suns so a few wins could mean a multiple seeding jump.

However, only 2.5 games separate the Mavs and the 12th place Blazers so a few more losses and things could start to get dicey for Luka and the boys.

All in all, this game is big for both teams but the Mavs are getting into win as many as possible territory.

The are much better at home, 20-12 compared to 12-19 away from Dallas and tonight is a good opportunity to take advantage of the Sixers on a back to back.

While I think the Mavericks win, I do not feel comfortable laying 4 points with the home team, especially if Embiid does play.

Give me the Sixers and the points to keep it close, in a tight game in Big D tonight!

Let’s cap this off with Luka in a great matchup for him on the glass.

Luka has 8+ Rebounds in 5 of his last 7 games, and is honestly the Mavericks most consistant and best rebounder.

While he only has 8+ boards in 3 of the 6 matchups with the Sixers, the recent success and his ability to grab 10+ boards every night is hard to ignore here.

A sneaky plus money play is Luka to snag a Triple double. This is a big game for the Mavs tonight and Luka steps up big in these moments.

But for the value, 10+ rebounds is a fine play as well. He should play 30+ minutes tonight and will have plenty of chances to do a little bit of everything, including grub on the glass.

Bonus: 10+ Rebounds (+150)
