Analysis
This is a play on the DALLAS MAVERICKS for our NBA Friday Star Attraction. Memphis has won 11 straight games to move into third place in the Western Conference while going 10-1 ATS in those games including eight straight covers. The Grizzlies streak includes solid wins over Phoenix, Golden St. and Brooklyn but for the most part, it has come against some pretty poor teams. They bring in the third highest scoring offense in the league, averaging 112.3 ppg and they have gone over that average in seven of their last eight games. One of those was against the Warriors and their top rated defense but they only shot 44 percent from the floor as they took advantage of 11 offensive rebounds compared to just four for Golden St. The Grizzlies are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as a home favorite. Dallas had a six-game winning streak snapped with a 23-point loss at New York on Wednesday. The Mavericks are now three games over .500 and this has pushed them into fifth place in the Western Conference but they are just two and a half games out of ninth place so it is a crowded bunch outside the top four. They do have a good matchup against the Memphis offense as Dallas is ranked No. 3 in the NBA in scoring defense and over their last eight games, it has allowed fewer than 100 points six times while allowing more than 90 shots only once. The Mavericks are 11-11 on the road, one of only five teams in the conference at .500 or better away from home. The Mavericks are 6-0 ATS in their last six games following an ATS loss. Here, we play against teams where the line is +3 to -3 having won 20 or more of their last 25 games, with a winning record on the season playing another winning team. This situation is 41-16 ATS (71.9 percent) over the last five seasons. 10* (517) Dallas Mavericks
