San Antonio Spurs at Dallas Mavericks NBA Lines & Picks -March 12, 2019
Spurs in Playoff Mode as they Make Short Trip to Dallas
The San Antonio Spurs, who were starting to be a playoff afterthought when they began the second half of the season by losing their first three games, now have to feel good about themselves as they will attempt to maintain their winning disposition while looking for their sixth consecutive victory as they get ready to resume competition in a showdown against the Dallas Mavericks. The two Southwest division rivals are scheduled to lock horns in the third installment of their 4-game regular season series set to be contested Tuesday night at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX.
Many critics were quick to dismiss the Spurs as a playoff contender after they went on to lose seven of eight contests amid the All-Star break but all those losses came during a grueling eight-game road trip. Granted, they will need to get better away from the friendly confines of the AT&T Center but their dominance on home soil is undeniable winning their last eight. They have dominated the rivalry against Dallas taking 6 of the last 7 contests and will face a Mavericks’ squad that have lost 10 of its last 11 games. Dallas enters this affair as a 5-point underdog, thanks to MyBookie Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 218 points.
