Spurs vs. Mavericks, 8:30 p.m. ET, NBATV

Pick ATS: Spurs +4.5

The line for Wednesday night’s game is currently set at 4.5 points, with the Mavericks favored at home. Dallas ended the first half of the season on a hot-streak winning three-straight games. They’ve also won three-straight games at home.

The Mavs led by Luka Doncic have been good against their Southwest foes with a record of 4-1. But if they want to extend their win streak, Dallas will need to win the rebounding battle over the Spurs. This season, the Mavericks is averaging 42.8 rebounds per game and have a record of 8-1 when they control the glass.

As for the Spurs, it appears as if they are fully healthy for the first time in a while. They’ve missed Derrick White, Rudy Gay, among others due to health and safety protocols. But with a healthy team, they should be able to give the Mavericks a run for their money. The Spurs have a record of 9-4 against the spread away from the AT&T center this season. San Antonio is also 11-6 ATS this season as an underdog, including 3-2 in their last five.

Player Prop: Dejounte Murray O29.5 points, rebounds, and assists (-110)

For the Spurs to cover the spread and possibly pull the upset, the ball must be in Dejounte Murray’s hands a lot. The young San Antonio point guard has been one of more underrated guards and players in the league this season. While we pay attention to Russell Westbrook, who is a walking-triple double, Murray already has two under his belt and barely missed out on having more.

This season, the former University of Washington point guard is averaging 15.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 5.4 assists per game. He has gone over 29.5 points, rebounds, and assists in 15 out of 32 games played.
