(28-37) Dallas Mavericks vs. Toronto Raptors (38-28)
The Dallas Mavericks began the season as one of the worst teams in the league but have since turned it around to put themselves within spitting distance of the final playoff seed out West.
The Toronto Raptors, on the other hand, began the year with hopes of being the top challenger to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but are now in danger of falling out of the Eastern Conference’s top three seeds (maybe even the top four) with Kyle Lowry sidelined.
These two face off in Toronto to kick off the week Monday night.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
The Raptors are the more talented team here. There’s no doubt that they’re more dangerous to go off on any night, and it’s indisputable that they’re going to do more damage by the time this season comes to an end.
After all, they are a lock for the postseason and the Mavs are still scrapping just to compete for the eighth seed.
The catch here is that the Raps haven’t looked like themselves since Lowry went down, making them unpredictable in a far less favorable way than Dallas is unpredictable.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Dallas ATS
Give this one straight up to the home team, but don’t be shocked if a Mavs team desperate to make the postseason competes at a high enough level to collect a win ATS.
