The Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings meet Tuesday in the NBA action at the Golden 1 Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Mavericks vs Kings prediction.

Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have been in red-hot form as they’ve won eight of their last nine games overall and they will be gunning for a fifth straight victory after outlasting the Jazz in a 115-105 road win last night. Luka Doncic led the team with a triple-double of 29 points with 12 rebounds and 13 assists, Kyrie Irving added 27 points with five assists while PJ Washington chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Mavericks shot 47 percent from the field and 12 of 42 from the 3-point line as they got off to a sloppy start and trailed going into halftime, before they clamped down defensively and held the Jazz to just 39 points in the second half to pull away and keep their win streak alive. The Mavericks will face the Rockets and Warriors after this b2b against the Kings.

Sacramento Kings

Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings have been in fine form as they’ve won six of their last eight games overall and they will be eager to stay hot after outlasting the 76ers in a 108-96 home win last night. Keegan Murray and De’Aaron Fox led the team with 23 points each, Davion Mitchell added 18 points on six of nine shooting off the bench while Domantas Sabonis tallied a triple-double of 11 points with 13 rebounds and 10 asssists. As a team, the Kings shot 44 percent from the field and 10 of 38 from the 3-point line as they hit the ground running with 60 points in the first half to jump out to a double digit lead, before they made another push in the third quarter to lead by as many as 22 points at one stage. Following this b2b set against Dallas, the Kings will take on the Jazz, Knicks, Celtics, Nets, and Thunder.

Sacramento Kings Team Facts

  • The Kings have won each of their last six night games against Southwest Division opponents.
  • The Kings have failed to cover the spread in each of their last nine games as home favorites on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • Eight of the Kings’ last nine games have gone UNDER the total points line.

Dallas Mavericks Team Facts

  • The Mavericks have lost 10 of their last 11 road games against Western Conference opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Mavericks have covered the spread in each of their last eight road games on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • Thirteen of the Mavericks’ last 14 night games against Western Conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Mavericks vs Kings prediction

The Mavericks are still shorthanded with Brandon Williams and Josh Green still out, while the Kings are still missing Kevin Huerter and Trey Lyles. The Mavericks come into this meeting as one of the hottest teams in the league right now and they have all their key players healthy, but the Kings lead the season series by 2-0 and they looked good in last night’s win over the 76ers. This is a tough one to pick as you can make an argument for either side here, but the Mavericks are the hotter team right now and I think they can get the job done as the slight underdog here.
