Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks Predictions 1/17/2022

 

The Mavericks beat the Orlando Magic 108-92 on Saturday, with Kristaps Porzingis scoring 12 of his 19 points in the first quarter. After skipping seven matches due to COVID-19, the 7-foot-3 Latvian was sharp right away.

 

In the first quarter, Porzingis made four of five shots, beginning with a post-up bucket and closing with a 3-pointer that just missed the buzzer after a pump fake generated a clear look from the corner. The Mavericks won their eighth match in a row thanks to Luka Doncic’s 23 points.

 

Dallas was competing a night after snapping Memphis’ 11-game winning run and welcomed back coach Jason Kidd, who was out for four games due to a positive COVID-19 test. They are on a run lately, and they’ll try to keep it going against the Thunder.

 

  • The Dallas Mavericks are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Dallas’ last 8 matches against Oklahoma City.
  • Dallas is 6-0 SU in their last 6 matches in the Western Conference.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks. The NBA pick for this game is the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks are performing their best basketball of the season after a gap in the early months of the year as they coped with a slew of injuries and COVID issues.

 

They captured eight of their previous nine games, including six straight against opponents from the Western Conference. Porzingis and Doncic are starting to play together again, which is allowing Dallas’ backups (Brunson and Hardaway Jr) to reclaim their regular roles as third and fourth choices.

 

Oklahoma City is going through a difficult rebuild and failed to cover the spread in seven of their previous eight away games versus the Mavericks. Dallas is expected to keep rolling in a comfortable home win. The Dallas Mavericks will win and cover to a predicted score of 117-101.
