A 13-game Warriors winning streak has put first place in the Western Conference out of reach for the Spurs so they have little left to play for in their final four remaining regular-season games. They’ll take on an equally unmotivated Mavericks side in Dallas this evening with San Antonio opening as the 2.5-point favorite.
– Shark BITES
- The Spurs are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against the Mavericks.
- The Mavericks are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games at home against teams with winning records.
- The Spurs are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games against their division.
This Texas battle is a strange one in that there’s nothing on the line for either team. Projecting lineups for this evening will be nearly impossible with the Spurs looking toward the postseason and the Mavs hoping to improve their draft position with the playoffs out of reach.
That said, LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard are all expected to sit out tonight and Dallas has been a solid home team all season long with a 21-18 straight-up record at American Airlines Arena.
It’s tough to say what you should do in this situation but considering how bad the Spurs have been against the spread when playing other teams in the Southwest Division, a bet on the Mavs with the points could be rewarding.
