Struggling Mavericks in Tough vs Eastern Conference-Leading Raptors

The Toronto Raptors have quietly been going about their business in the Eastern Conference and have been playing phenomenal basketball of late as a result. The Dinos, who sit atop the East in the wake of Boston’s loss to Washington on Christmas Day, will look to keep the momentum rolling vs the lowly Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday.

MyBookie opened the Raptors as 5.5-point road favorites with a total of 209.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings with the Mavericks in Dallas.
  • The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between the Raptors and Mavericks.
  • The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games.

Toronto has won seven in a row and is coming off a sweep of a home-and-home set with the Philadelphia 76ers. The Raptors are averaging 111.3 points and lead the East in point differential (plus-8.9). All-star shooting guard DeMar DeRozan has improved his three-point shooting in a big way, as the veteran is 13-for-20 from beyond the arc over the last three games and is averaging 34 points in that span.

The Mavericks are making one stop at home before hitting the road for three straight and are coming off a 112-107 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday. Dallas owns the worst record in the Western Conference but is getting solid performances from J.J. Barea, evidenced by the 33-year-old leading the team in assists (5.8) while ranking third in scoring (12 per game) despite getting only 22.9 minutes.

When these teams get together, low-scoring games are the norm. In the last seven meetings between the Raptors and Mavs, the UNDER is 6-1.
