The Dallas Mavericks are playing their best ball fo the season and these last second wins are only going to add to the confidence. The Philadelphia 76ers have all of a sudden been a little shaky, and they're only winning their last five games by an average of 0.2 points while allowing 46.3 percent shooting from the field. The Dallas Mavericks have the offense horses to hang in this game and have actually won each of the last three meetings against the 76ers. I'll take my chances with the Mavs and the points on the road.
