The Line: Golden State Warriors PK See the Latest Odds
The Dallas Mavericks will be facing off against the Warriors on Tuesday night.
The Golden State Warriors are currently 40-24 this season, putting the Warriors in sixth place in the Western Conference at this point. Golden State has both a top ten offense and a top ten defense this season, and if the Warriors can hit a late season/post season groove, Golden State will be a tough out in the playoffs. The Warriors have been playing very well lately, winning four out of their last five, with their latest win coming against the Suns on Sunday, 113-107.

The Dallas Mavericks are currently in seventh place in the Western Conference, holding a slim lead over the eight seed Memphis Grizzlies. The Mavs are sitting at 38-26 this season, although Dallas has struggled a bit as of late, dropping three out of their last five heading into this meeting with the Warriors. The last outing for Dallas was on Sunday, where the Mavs got an impressive win at home against the Indiana Pacers, who are currently ranked first in the East and have secured their own playoff spot already.
The Mavs are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games against the West, and the Mavs are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games against a team with a winning record. Dallas however is only 1-5 against the spread in their last six games following an ATS win.
The Golden State Warriors are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games following an ATS loss, and the Warriors are 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games at home.
I’m a bit concerned here about Curry possibly sitting this one out, but with Dallas being anything of a sure win, the Warriors need to keep pace and won’t take the Mavs lightly.
The Mavericks will give the Warriors a game, but I don’t see Dallas having enough here on the road in Dallas.
