Mavericks are on an ATS Roll

The Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat take center stage on Friday as they kick off 2016 with a tilt in the Sunshine State. Bettors of the Mavs will be pleased to know they've found success when playing in Miami, going 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games at American Airlines Arena.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Heat's last eight games with two days off.
  • The Mavericks are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games after winning as an underdog.
  • The total has gone under in seven of the Mavericks' last 10 games after an ATS win.

The Mavs head to Florida on a hot streak. Dallas, winners of four straight, trumped the mighty Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, however, the Dubs were missing all-world point guard Stephen Curry.

Many expected this season to be a down year for Dallas, but head coach Rick Carlisle is once again proving he's one of the brightest minds in the business and has done a miraculous job finagling a roster that on paper is not nearly as impressive as other teams in the Western Conference.

The Heat rarely drop two-straight games, evidenced by them going 10-3 SU in their last 13 games coming off a loss. Dwayne Wade and company will be looking to get back in the win column in the wake of Tuesday's overtime loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
