Dallas Mavericks To COVER (-5.5) @ Detroit Pistons (-115)
Derrick Rose and the Detroit Pistons are riding high right now, coming off a buzzer-beating victory against the Pelicans on the road this past weekend. In fact, the Pistons have won four of their last five games and are just a game outside the Eastern Conference playoff picture about a quarter of the way through the season. With that being said, I am betting against them tonight, as they take on the red-hot Mavericks at home. Dallas is among the best teams in the NBA right now, currently sitting in the third position out West and being led by MVP candidate Luka Doncic. In fact, the Mavs have won five of their last six games and 10 of their last 12 to shoot up the standings.
From a betting perspective, Dallas is 3-0 ATS versus Detroit over the last three seasons. In addition, the Mavs have the sixth-best ATS record in the NBA at 14-9-0 to this point in the season. On the flip side, the Pistons are just 10-13-1 ATS in 2019. Dallas is coming off a loss, which has been rare so far this year. With that in mind, they are an impressive 5-1-0 ATS following a loss this season. In addition, they are an NBA-best 8-2 ATS on the road and 4-1 ATS as a road favorite. All the numbers favor Dallas tonight, so don’t overthink and you’ll cash in.
