Will It Be a Happy Return Home for the Mavericks After Tough Trip?
This is the first game back home for the Mavs after a five-game road trip, and they will likely be glad to be back home.
In their road swing, they lost four games by double digits, and the only one on they picked up on their travels was an overtime win over the Los Angeles Lakers.
At home, Dallas is only 9-11-2 ATS, but they are 5-2 ATS this season when favored by three or fewer points.
By comparison, the Hawks are 4-7 ATS this season when they have been an underdog of three or fewer points.
Additionally, the Hawks are just 5-9 SU and 5-9 ATS on the road this season against teams who entered today at .500 or better. So, there are a number of factors in favor of the home team covering the tight spread tonight.
