Dallas Mavericks vs Memphis by Marlo
Last time out I opted for Dallas to cover the first half handicap on Bucks and they graciously obliged. I will be backing them to do the same tonight.
The rich history for this one is lopsided in favour of Dallas. They have won 29 of 36 home games against the Grizzlies during the regular season and last time they met Dallas won by 12 pts despite only needed to cover a three point spread.
Gasol is out and COnley is doubtful for the visitors.
Monta Ellis can do some real damage whethere Dirk appears or not as he is 2nd in ppg with 20.8.
Memphis has lost 4 in a row including a 92-96 stutter last night against a Lakers outfit where they were favoured by 2.5 points.
I expect Dallas to cover the spread come finish time too but I like the look of them covering first half here as I expect a strong start.
Dallas outscores opponents by an average of 5 at home in the first half, but I will take them to cover a slightly larger line here.
Good luck if you're on.
