Trail Blazers Have Been the Opposite of Road Warriors This Year

The Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers have been two of the most underwhelming teams in the Western Conference this season, but they’re both within striking distance of the Denver Nuggets for the eighth and final playoff spot. The squads will renew acquaintances Tuesday in the Lone Star State, where oddsmakers opened the Blazers as 2.5-point underdogs with an OVER/UNDER of 207.

Shark Bites
  • The Trail Blazers are 5-24 SU in their last 29 games on the road against the Mavericks.
  • The Mavericks are 2-8 SU and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games at home after consecutive road games.
  • The Trail Blazers are 3-13 SU in their last 16 games on the road.

The addition of Yogi Ferrell has been a massive shot in the arm for the Mavs. The rookie, who recently signed a 10-day contract, earned himself a full-time gig by unloading on Portland last Friday to the tune of 32 points including nine 3-pointers. Dallas announced plans to sign him to a two-year contract on Tuesday.

Blazers superstar point guard Damian Lillard was ice-cold in that game, as the 26-year-old shot 4-for-20 from the field and tallied 13 points. Lillard had scored at least 25 in each of his previous five meetings with the Mavericks.

Dallas has been a sneaky great bet when playing at home lately. In the Mavs’ past six home tilts, they’re a perfect 6-0 ATS.
