The Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings meet Friday in 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 nine of their last 10 games overall and they will be gunning for a sixth straight win after routing the Kings in a 132-96 road win on Tuesday. Luka Doncic led the team with 28 points, 11 rebounds and six assists, Kyrie Irving added 24 points with eight assists while Tim Hardaway Jr chipped in with 22 points and six assists off the bench. As a team, the Mavericks shot 55 percent from the field and a sizzling 22 of 39 from the 3-point line as they took control of the contest with 38 points in the third quarter to take a double-digit lead, before they dominated the fourth quarter by 36-20 to make it a complete blowout win in the end. The Mavs will take on the Rockets after this one.

Sacramento Kings

Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings have been in fine form as they;ve won six of their last nine games overall, but they will be hoping for a better performance after getting embarrassed by the Mavericks in a tough loss on Tuesday. De’Aaron Fox led the team with 18 points, Keegan Murray added 17 points on six of 11 shooting while Domantas Sabonis tallied 12 points with 11 rebounds and nine assists. As a team, the Kings shot just 38 percent from the field and 11 of 30 from the 3-point line as they did a decent job of staying within striking distance in the first half, only to get completely outplayed by 74-43 in the second half to suffer one of their biggest losses of the season. The Kings will play against the Jazz and Clippers after this game.

Sacramento Kings Team Facts

  • The Kings have won each of their last 13 games at Golden 1 Center following a home loss.
  • The Kings have failed to cover the spread in each of their last eight home games against Southwest Division opponents.
  • Nine of the Kings’ last 10 games have gone UNDER the total points line.

Dallas Mavericks Team Facts

  • The underdogs have won each of the Mavericks’ last three games at Golden 1 Center.
  • The Mavericks have failed to cover the spread in each of their last 10 games after winning as underdogs.
  • Fourteen of the Mavericks’ last 15 night games against Western Conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Mavericks vs Kings prediction

The Mavericks have ruled out Josh Green again, and they have Maxi Kleber and Luka Doncic both listed as questionable, while the Kings are still missing Trey Lyles, and they have Sasha Vezenkov listed as questionable with an ankle sprain. The status of Doncic obviously plays a major factor in the outcome of this game, so you should definitely check the lineups before tipoff. Even if Doncic sits out, I am still more comfortable going with the Mavericks, who have been one of the hottest teams in the league over the past three weeks. Sure, we’re going to see a better effort from the Kings this time out, but I think the Mavericks are decent value as the underdogs here, so that’s where I am leaning.
