The Dallas Mavericks travel to Wells Fargo Arena to battle the Philadelphia 76ers tonight.
The Mavericks have won three straight and four of their last five after beating the Rockets by 110-98 on Saturday. Raymond Felton scored seven straight points late in the game to give his team the win and finish with 23 points on eight of 16 shooting. Charlie Villanueva added 19 points and Devin Harris chipped in with 15 points off the bench as the Mavs continued their strong run despite playing without Dirk Nowitzki who was rested for the game. Dallas is now 6-4 on the season and 3-2 on the road.

Meanwhile, the 76ers are still searching for that elusive first win of the season, falling to 0-10 on the season following a 92-83 loss at San Antonio on Saturday. Jahlil Okafor had a nice double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds while Jerami Grant added 12 points, but no one else finished in double digits as the 76ers fell behind big early and could never find their way into the match. To their credit however, the Sixers kept competing for the entire 48 minutes and managed to cut the deficit to just 87-83 with 3:06 left in the game, but they just couldn't get over the hump.
In ATS trends, the Mavs are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 road games, while the 76ers are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 home games.
Head to head, the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings and the underdog is 8-3-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Sixers really haven't shown plenty of fight all season but they just haven't managed to get that win just yet and I don't see that happening tonight against a Mavs outfit starting to heat up.
