Cavs and Mavs Both Trending UNDER

Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James Dallas Mavericks Dirk Nowitzki

The finally healthy Cleveland Cavaliers are looking like a well-oiled machine these days, which is bad news for the rest of the NBA. The Cavs, winners of seven in a row, will look to keep up their winning ways Tuesday when they take on the Dallas Mavericks in the Big D, their first of three games in the Lone Star State.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Cavaliers' last 11 games.
  • The Mavericks are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games after a win.
  • The Cavaliers are 15-0 SU and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games in January.

LeBron James and company have been sub-par at the betting window during the aforementioned winning streak, however, going 3-3-1 ATS in that span. The Mavericks (22-16 SU) have exceeded expectations in what many experts were projecting to be a down year, yet another reason in a long line of them to believe Rick Carlisle is one of the best coaches in the Association.

Defeating the Mavericks and covering the spread has been a tall order for the wine and gold as of late, as Cleveland is just 1-5 SU and ATS in its last six games against the Mavs.

Totals bettors need to take note of a few specific trends heading into this one. The UNDER has paid out in six of the previous seven contests between these clubs, while the UNDER has also cashed in seven of the Mavericks’ last eight games.
