NBA Betting Pick and Prediction: Dallas Mavericks vs. Los Angeles Clippers

November 25, 2023


The Dallas Mavericks will travel to Los Angeles, California to face the Los Angeles Clippers at the Crypto.com Arena on Saturday night with the game scheduled to start at 10:30 PM ET and will air on NBA TV. 

Dallas has been one of the best teams in the Western Conference this season as they enter this game with the 4th best record in the conference with a record of 10-5 and are coming off a 104-101 win on the road against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday which also ended their two-game losing streak. Luka Doncic continues to have this team playing at a high level offensively as he enters this game leading the team in scoring, rebounds, and assists with an average of 30.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 8.1 assists per game while the Mavericks are averaging the 3rd most points per game in the league with an average of 121.53 points per game. However, the Dallas Mavericks liked to play at a high tempo which is why they are also allowing the 7th most points per game in the NBA with an average of 119.07 points per game.

The Los Angeles Clippers saw their three-game winning streak come to an end on Friday with a 106-116 loss at home against the New Orleans Pelicans which has dropped their record to 6-8 on the year and puts them in 11th place in the Western Conference. The Clippers have been one of the best defensive scoring teams this season as they are allowing an average of 109.08 points per game, however, they are also one of the lower scoring teams in the league as they are averaging 113.15 points per game on the year and have scored under 110 points per game in five of their last six matches this season.

BookMaker has the Dallas Mavericks listed as 1.5-point favorites on the road against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night. The teams are 5-5 in the last ten games while Dallas has won two of the last three meetings. The Clippers are 6-4 ATS in the last ten while the Mavericks are 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Dallas Mavericks are 8-7 ATS overall, 6-3 ATS on the road, and 7-5 ATS as a favorite this season while the Los Angeles Clippers are 5-9 ATS overall, 3-3 ATS at home, and 1-3 ATS as an underdog on the year. 

Dallas has been one of the best teams this season and has been the better team most recently in the series, winning two of the last three meetings while also being the better team at covering the spread this season going 8-7 ATS overall and 7-5 ATS as a favorite while the Clippers are 5-9 ATS overall and have gone 1-3 ATS as an underdog which is why I am buying the .5 point and laying the point with the Dallas Mavericks when they travel to face the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night to make it three straight wins in the series.
