Celtics go for 16th win in a row vs Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks won’t have much time to bask in victory before their next challenge. After getting their third win of the season and breaking a four-game losing streak, the Mavs will welcome the league-best Boston Celtics to the American Airlines Center to throw down some hoop. The Celtics opened as 7.5-point favorites and can secure their 16th win in a row.

  • The Celtics are 14-0 SU in their last 14 games against teams with losing records.
  • Dirk Nowitzki is averaging a career-low 10.3 points per game.
  • The Celtics are 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games on the road.

The Mavericks may already be looking to the 2018-19 season. The temporary good news is Dallas is coming off a decent win against an up-and-coming Milwaukee Bucks team, tying the franchise record for three-pointers in a game with 19. The overarching bad news is the Mavs are 3-14 SU and 5-12 ATS overall and show no signs of being able to compete in a stacked Western Conference. Bettors should consider taking the Celtics to cover the spread and here’s why: The Mavericks have been an underdog of 7.5 points or more eight times this season and are 1-7 ATS in that stretch.

The Celtics have been kicking butt and taking names this season and haven’t lost in over a month. Boston is holding teams to 94.4 points per game and their decision to draft Jayson Tatum over Markelle Fultz looks better with each passing game. The Celtics are 8-1 ATS away from TD Garden this season and are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 visits to Dallas.

The total opened at 196.5 and both of these teams are notorious UNDER picks this season. The UNDER has hit in four of Boston’s last six games and, as I mentioned, the Celtics are holding teams down from scoring the rock. When you factor in that the UNDER has hit in three straight games involving Dallas, the low opening total shouldn’t scare you off.
