The Dallas Mavericks hit the road and will visit the Boston Celtics at the TD Garden on Wednesday night. These teams faced each other 2 times last season and the Mavs won both games but went 1-1 ATS.
The Celtics get here with a 13-4 record overall and are 6-1 at home ranking 1st in the Atlantic division. In their last game, they lost 121-107 against the Chicago Bulls on the road. Jayson Tatum led Boston with 28 points. Jaylen Brown scored 25, and Malcolm Brogdon finished with 23 points, nailing 5 of 6 3-pointers.
Jayson Tatum leads the team with 30.9 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists for the Celtics while Marcus Smart is averaging 7.1 assists per game.
In their last 10 games, the Celtics are 9-1, averaging 121.0 points, 43.0 rebounds, 29.2 assists, 7.3 steals and 5.5 blocks per game while shooting 52.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 112.3 points.
The Mavericks get here with a 9-7 record and are 1-4 on the road so far this season ranking 2nd in the Southwest. In their last game at home, they lost 98-97 against the Nuggets. Josh Green had a career-high 23 points for Dallas, but his only miss on an 8-of-9 night, including 6 of 7 from 3, was from long range with the Mavericks leading by two in the final 70 seconds. Doncic scored 22 with a miss on a long 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Luka Doncic leads the team and is averaging 33.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 8.1 assists for the Mavericks. C. Wood is averaging 10.9 rebounds over the first 2 games for Dallas.
In their last 10 games the Mavericks are 6-4, averaging 103.7 points, 35.6 rebounds, 18.1 assists, 8.2 steals and 2.5 blocks per game while shooting 45.1% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 102.5 points.
Boston are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Boston's last 5 games against Dallas.
Boston are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games at home.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Boston's last 6 games when playing at home against Dallas.
Dallas are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games.
Dallas are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Boston.
Dallas are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games on the road.
The Celtics have been on fire this season and have lost only 4 games so far with a 6-1 record at home but they'll probably be without their best player in Jason Tatum who's dealing with ankle sprain. The Mavericks have been up and down this season and have struggled on the road losing 4 of their 5 games away. The Celtics are the better team and even without Tatum are capable of beat the Mavs but it will be a slow pace on this game and with the under cashing in 5 of the last 6 head to head games in Boston I think the under is the play.
PICK: Under 218.5 (-110)
