The Bucks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Mavericks are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 Sunday games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Dallas and 1-5-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
It's tough to buy stock in the Mavericks given their start and with Dirk Nowitzki out at least a week due to injury. However, the Bucks did play yesterday and still struggle on the offensive side. If there was a game for the Mavs to get in the W column, you'd think it would be this one at home. I don't love this game, but I'd side with the Mavericks and the small line if forced to pick.
