NBA on ESPN: Dallas vs. Boston, Utah vs. Denver and Oklahoma City vs. Phoenix
The Mavericks enter tonight's matchup as proud winners of their last six games. Power forward Dirk Nowitzki is settling back into his natural form and center Tyson Chandler has emerged as an offense threat, averaging 17.4 points and 10.4 rebounds per game during his last five contests.
Boston currently owns the best record in the East, and has won their last two sports betting games.
The last time these two teams collided, the Mavericks won the battle in Dallas.
SBG Global.com Spread: Dallas (+6.5)
Prediction: The Mavericks hold a 14-7 record on the road. With Dirk back to his normal ways, you can never rule out Dallas, regardless if they are playing on the road. Take the Mavs with the spread.
Forward Kevin Durant has been unbelievable of late, averaging 37 PPG during his last five outings, including three 40-plus performances.
Center Marcin Gortat has exploded onto the scene and could do some damage if given ample playing time against OKC.
Spread: Phoenix (+2)
Sportsbook Prediction: With the way Kevin Durant is playing, it's tough not to select the Thunder in this matchup. Pick Oklahoma City and don't look back!
Utah got hit by the injury bug during the month of January, and its effects have lingered into February. The team had more losses than wins last month and point guard Deron Williams has now missed his last four games.
The Nuggets have played slightly better than the Jazz over the last month or so, but Melo's status for tonight's game is up in the air right now due to tightness in his knee.
In addition to Williams being a game time decision, forward Andrei Kirilenko has been ruled out for the matchup and forward Paul Millsap has been battling a dislocated pinkie on his left hand and a bruised right thumb.
Spread: Utah (+9.5)
Prediction: With key players being ruled as game time decisions for tonight's game, the same pick would be to take the Jazz with the spread.
