Darren Collison will face off against one of his former college teammates on Friday night, as the Dallas Mavericks (17-23) host the Oklahoma City Thunder (31-8) at the American Airlines Center, with the opening tip scheduled for 9:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Sports bettors will find that the Mavericks are 4.5-point underdogs in the NBA betting odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total stands at 205.5 in the market.

Collison scored a season-high 32 points the last time he played against Russell Westbrook—who he starred alongside at UCLA—but the Mavericks suffered a 111-105 overtime defeat in that affair on Dec. 27.

Let's take a closer look at this Western Conference showdown from a betting perspective, while offering up an against-the-spread pick along the way.
