The Dallas Mavericks are 4th in the Southwest Division with an overall record of 28-37 and a point differential of -1.4 (98.4 scored vs 99.8 conceded). The Raptors are 2nd in the Atlantic Division with an overall record of 38-28 and a point differential of 3.5 (107.3 vs 103.8).
The Mavericks had a very bad start of the season but have since turned it around and are now fighting for final playoff seed in the West. On the other hand, the Raptors started with high hopes but they are now in danger of falling out of the Eastern Conference’s top three seeds.
Head to head, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall and the under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings in Toronto. Toronto won both meetings last season but the Raptors just aren’t the same team right now.
One big problem for the Raptors is the sidelined Kyle Lowry. Without him they have been struggling quite a bit and we think they will continue to do so tonight. Therefore we take the points and the Mavericks.
