Wednesday, February 28 finds Dallas hosting Oklahoma City in their first matchup of the new year. In their previous matchup Dallas was able to sneak out of Oklahoma City with a 116-113 victory. Neither team has been in good form as Oklahoma City has gone 5-5 in their last 10, while Dallas has gone 3-7 in their last 10.
Oklahoma City opened up at 6 point favorites, while there hasn’t been any line movement yet. About 57% of the public is slightly leaning towards Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma City Thunder
After being owned by Golden State 80-112, Oklahoma City was able to rebound against a lowly Orlando squad 112-105. Unfortunately they weren’t able to cover, all the while they have gone 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games.
They may have a winning record, but this team has been really underwhelming. This offense is rated 12th overall. On the road they rank 13th in PPG, 26th in FG%, and 16th in 3PT%. Free throws have also been a struggle as they rank 30th overall.
The defensive side has been more pleasant as they own the 8th rated defense. On the road their defense ranks 8th in PPG, 12th in FG%, 11th in 3PT% and 14th in RPG.
We’re still waiting to see Oklahoma City start to get hot and start streaking before playoffs, but in their current form it is hard to expect that to happen any time soon, but you never know. They should at least be motivated to take out this Dallas squad that stole one from them on their home court.
After losing four straight contests, Dallas was able to get it together and defeat Indiana on their home court 109-103. And don’t look now, but they’ve covered two games in a row, so maybe they are getting ready to go through a little hot streak.
Finding offense has been hard to come by for this Dallas squad as they have the 21st ranked offense. At home they rank 25th in PPG, 25th in FG%, and 17th in 3PT%, all of which is pretty dreadful for the home crowd.
Their defensive rating isn’t great ranking 21st overall, but according to their home stats, they play some okay defense. At home they rank 8th in PPG and 10th in FG%. They struggle a tad against three-pointers ranking 18th overall, and they really struggle grabbing rebounds ranking 29th overall.
With the super stars that Oklahoma City has you’d figure they’d be more explosive, and at some point they’ll need to be just that if they want to make a run in the playoffs. Is there a better time to start a run than against a team that stole a victory on your home court earlier in the year.

Free Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction: Oklahoma City plays with more urgency and disposes of a lowly Dallas squad
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Oklahoma City -6
Dallas is probably in tank-mode at this point, so I don’t expect the defense to be kicking on all cylinders in this matchup, which could aid Oklahoma City in creating separation throughout this contest, especially behind that strong defense of theirs.
