The Mavs are hot and sit atop the Southwest Division thanks to the phenomenal form of Luka Doncic. The second-year player is already getting early-season MVP talk and is only two-tenths of an assist shy of averaging a triple-double (30.6 ppg, 10.1 rpg, 9.8 apg).

Dallas rank third in the NBA for scoring average with 119.1 ppg. They are coming off an impressive 137-123 road win over a talented Houston Rockets team and have averaged 140.7 ppg in their last three games.

After losing their first game with Paul George in the lineup, the Clippers have not lost since. The former OKC Thunder star has meshed well with Kawhi Leonard and company, averaging 25 ppg.

Montrezl Harrell scored a career-high 34 points and had 12 rebounds in LA’s win over New Orleans. The Clippers played good defense, holding the Pelicans to a FG% of 43.9%.

Leonard and George combined for 44 points in that game but were only a combined 13/39 from the field. Harrell came up big off the bench, combining with reigning Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams for 53 points at over 50% from the floor.

Dallas rank in the middle of the pack on defense and have a tough task on D in this game with Leonard, George, and Williams all averaging over 22 ppg. Harrell is also having an excellent season, averaging 19 ppg and 7.5 rpg.

The Mavs got off to a hot start in their win over the Rockets, outscoring Houston 45-29 in the first quarter. Doncic had 41 points and 10 assists and shot over 50% from the floor, Tim Hardaway Jr. had a season-high 31 points, and Kristaps Porzingis had a double-double with 23 points and 13 rebounds.

Doncic is shooting nearly 50% from the floor and 34.7% from three-point range this season. Porzingis has had an up-and-down first season in Dallas but has totaled 40 points at over 50% shooting in his last two games, while he has double digits in rebounds in five of his last six games.

This season the Clippers are only 1-4 on the road, while the Mavs are 6-3 at home.

Clippers @ Mavericks NBA betting picks

Dallas Mavericks +2 at -111.11 with Bovada

So, the Clippers are 0-4 ATS in their last four road games and only have one road win this season. On the flip side, the Mavs have covered in their last four home games, and in five straight overall, and have also covered in their last four home games facing the Clip Joint. The Mavs will be pumped for this game and Doncic will play well in a shootout. It will also be a close-scoring game and while Dallas may not win, they will cover the spread as home underdogs.
