OVERs the Story When Mavs and Warriors Get Together

Even without stars Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, the Golden State Warriors are as dangerous as ever. Thanks to great efforts by Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, the Warriors have rattled off seven straight victories and can make it eight with a win over the lowly Dallas Mavericks on Thursday.

Xbet opened the Dubs as 11.5-point home favorites with a total of 212.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 18-2 SU in their last 20 games against teams with losing records.
  • The Mavericks are 2-11 SU in their last 13 games after a win.
  • The Mavericks are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games against the Warriors.

Curry sat out the last three games and likely won’t be available for the rest of the week as a result of an ankle injury, while the team expects to have Green back in the lineup for tonight’s prime-time affair. Golden State is also getting solid performances from its supporting cast, as role players Jordan Bell, David West and Omri Casspi all scored in double figures in Monday’s 111-104 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Mavericks have dropped their last four road games but enter the tilt on a positive note thanks to a big 95-89 win over the mighty San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday. Guards Yogi Ferrell, Wesley Matthews and J.J. Barea scored 16 points apiece while holding the Spurs backcourt trio of Tony Parker, Danny Green and Manu Ginobili to a measly 14 points combined.

Mavs rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr. hasn’t played in the last three games and is not expected to play in this one due to a hip injury.

When the Mavericks and Warriors get together, high-scoring games are the story. In the last seven meetings between the clubs, the OVER is 5-2.
