#517 DALLAS (+) over Memphis at 10 PM EST Off that ugly 23-point loss in the Big Apple to the Knicks, the Mavericks will get back on track with a solid effort at Memphis. The red-hot Grizzlies enter this contest on a stunning 11-0 SU and 10-1 ATS run and they're going to run out of steam in this division battle. Historically speaking, Dallas has played very well in this series inking a tremendous 74-32 SU and 60-43-2 ATS record. If the Mavs are on the road, this team trend improves to a powerful 35-18 SU and 32-19-1 ATS including an elite 18-8 SU and ATS if they bust in off a pointspread loss. Equally impressive, as a guest hitting the hardwood off a straight up loss, Dallas owns a profitable 110-69-4 ATS mark provided its opponent enters with plenty of confidence off two or more straight up wins. If head coach Jason Kidd's troops were on the road in their last game, then this team trend improves to a rewarding 67-34-3 ATS including a stunning 41-13-3 ATS if their opponent played in the comforts of home last. With those three parameters in play and the Mavericks priced as an underdog or a favorite of -2 or less, this situation explodes to a sensational 36-8-3 ATS. Memphis is hot. That fact is noted. However, in division play, the Grizzlies have lost their growl inking a feeble 228-264-8 ATS record including a filthy 27-65 SU and 29-57-1 ATS mark provided their opponent busts in without confidence off a double-digit blowout loss. With those two parameters cranking away and Memphis facing a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage less than .545, this technical situation drops to a disturbing 17-40 SU and 13-40 ATS including a shocking 0-11 SU and 0-9 ATS provided the Grizz are competing in the second of a back-to-back. The Mavs are locked into one of their best roles, and they'll have no trouble pulling off this minor upset. Take Dallas. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
