The Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.
The Dallas Mavericks look for another win after losing six of their last seven games. The Dallas Mavericks are averaging 111.6 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 115.1 points on 49.3 percent shooting. Luka Doncic is averaging 19.4 points and 4.6 assists while Wesley Matthews is averaging 17.6 points and 2.7 rebounds. Dennis Smith Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and DeAndre Jordan is grabbing 14.3 rebounds. The Dallas Mavericks are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 75.9 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Mavericks are allowing 43.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.8 rebounds per game. The Dallas Mavericks have lost all five road games this season.
The Utah Jazz could also use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Utah Jazz are averaging 109.9 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 110.2 points on 48.3 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 22.4 points and 4.1 assists while Rudy Gobert is averaging 16.3 points and 13.4 rebounds. Jae Crowder is the third double-digit scorer and Joe Ingles is dishing four assists. The Utah Jazz are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 72.7 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.2 rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz have lost all four home games this season.
The Mavericks are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 vs. NBA Northwest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The Jazz are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Mavericks are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the underdog is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Even with Donovan Mitchell back on the court, the Utah Jazz aren't playing well enough to be laying these sort of numbers. The Dallas Mavericks have shown enough offensive firepower and have covered six of their first 10 games where you can consider them as a decent option here. Give me the points.
