Both Teams Strong Against The Spread

Phoenix is 7-3 against the spread and has covered in their last three outings. With the spread set at just 3 points at online gambling sites, the Suns are a safe team to lean on in this betting line.

The Suns have an average win margin of +7.9 this season and this has increased to +19.7 in recent games. Phoenix also averages 112.5 PPG which is third in the league, while holding opponents to just 104.6 PPG which is sixth in the league.

The Suns have a defensive rating of 104.8 as well showing they are one of the best teams on both ends of the floor making them an easy choice at NBA betting sites to cover the spread.

The Mavericks on the other hand are also solid against the spread recently, going 6-1 in their last 10 outings and were recently on a four-game streak of covering.

Dallas’ win margin isn’t that high this season, just +2.8. However, in recent outings, the Mavericks have jumped to +7.3.

Dallas averages 105.4 PPG this season but they are holding opponents to just 102.6 PPG which is the second-best in the league. The Mavericks also have a defensive rating of 106.7 this season.

While the counting numbers would reflect that the Mavericks hold opponents to lower scoring outputs which may affect the Suns’ chance to cover the spread, this is only due to the Mavs’ slower pace of play.

The Mavericks are second to last in pace this season in pace, having significantly fewer possessions in a game that the Suns. This has also led to Mavericks games being lower scoring, as the Mavs are currently 1-9 with hitting the Over set by online sportsbooks in their last 10 outings.

Should Phoenix be able to push the pace in this outing, then they would still be able to finish with a high-scoring game. Add that to the Suns’ superior defensive rating, then the Mavs are likely to see the end of their streak in this outing.
