The Phoenix Suns pay a visit to the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center on Wednesday night. Here’s a Suns vs Mavs Prediction.

Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns have been in great form as they’ve won 11 of their last 14 games overall and they will be eager to build on their current six-game win streak after sneaking past the Bulls in a thrilling 115-113 home win on Monday. Kevin Durant led the team with 43 points and eight assists on 16 of 32 shooting, Bradley Beal added 18 points with five assists while Devin Booker chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Suns shot 51 percent from the field and 14 of 34 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and found themselves trailing by as many as 23 points, before they dominated the second half to snatch victory thanks to a clutch shot from Kevin Durant who drained the game-winner with just 1.1 seconds left on the clock. The Suns will play against the Pacers, Magic, and Heat after this game.

Phoenix Suns Team Facts

  • The Suns have won each of their last six games.
  • The Suns have failed to cover the spread in 10 of their last 11 games as favorites following a win.
  • Each of the Suns’ last four road games following a home win have gone UNDER the total points line.

Dallas Mavericks

Meanwhile, the Dallas Mavericks have been in a rut as they’ve lost four of their last six games overall, but they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting beaten by the Celtics in a 119-110 loss on Monday. Luka Doncic led the team with a triple-double of 33 points with 18 rebounds and 13 assists, Kyrie Irving added 23 points while Tim Hardaway Jr. chipped in with 20 points off the bench. As a team, the Mavericks shot 44 percent from the field and 14 of 40 from the 3-point line, but despite a big game from Doncic, the Mavericks never had a chance in this one as they had no answer for the Celtics’ duo of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum who combined for 73 points. The Mavs will take on the Hawks after this one.

Dallas Mavericks Team Facts

  • The Mavericks have won 12 of their last 13 home games against the Suns following a home loss.
  • The Mavericks have covered the spread in each of their last six night games against the Suns.
  • Each of the Mavericks’ last six home games following a home loss have gone OVER the total points line.

Suns vs Mavs Prediction

The Suns are still shorthanded with Damion Lee out and Eric Gordon listed as questionable, while the Mavericks are keeping eyes on Luka Doncic, Seth Curry, Dante Exum and Kyrie Irving who are all questionable. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff with the Mavericks having so many key players under an injury cloud. With that being said, the Suns are coming into this one playing some of their best basketball of the season and I think they represent decent value with the line so short in this spot.
