NBA Predictions: Oklahoma City Thunder @ Dallas Mavericks
Date: Friday, January 18th, 9:30 ET
Location: American Airlines Arena, Dallas, TX
NBA Betting Odds: Oklahoma City -4
Thunder vs. Mavericks NBA TV Schedule: ESPN

The Thunder are streaking once again, as their winning streak is up to five games. In those games, they are 4-0-1 ATS. However, Dallas has really started to get going as well with four straight victories and five straight covers dating back to a loss against the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center a little over a week ago. With G Darren Collison slowed by an ankle injury, it’s tough to really want to back the Mavs in this one, though. They really haven’t beaten a lot of great teams in this stretch, and this is one of the best teams in the entire league. The Thunder have covered a ton of games of late, including covering six straight on the basketball betting lines as favorites of between five and 10.5 points. Oklahoma City is also 11-2-1 ATS in its last 14 games played here in Big D. This just doesn’t seem like a great spot for F Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks to be in, and we think that they are going to get exposed and knocked right back to earth by a significantly better Oklahoma City outfit, which has just too many options to ultimately fail in this game.

Thunder @ Mavericks NBA Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder -4
Thunder @ Mavericks Score Prediction: Thunder 108 – Mavericks 100
