The Mavericks are 4th in the Southwest Division with a record of 28-38 and a point difference of -1.7 (98.1 scored vs 99.8 conceded). The Wizards have an overall record of 41-25 and a point difference of 2.3 (109.1:106.8). They are 1st in the Southeast Division at the moment.
Dallas looked as though they could compete for the playoffs earlier this month, but their current form is not like it used to be. In addition, they aren't as strong on the road as they are at home and they have an average age quite higher than the Wizards.
I think that Washington is a much better team overall so I'll go for them to cover the spread.
