Cleveland Cavaliers vs Dallas Mavericks 11/22/2019 – The Dallas Mavericks look to continue riding on the hot hand of blossoming superstar Luka Doncic as they play the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday at American Airlines Center. As expected, Dallas opened as a double-digit home favorite in NBA betting lines after recording three straight wins – in which the Slovenian phenom had been nothing short of sensational.

The free fall continues for the Cavaliers, who suffered their fifth straight loss on Wednesday against the Miami Heat, 124-100. Kevin Love chalked up 25 points and 13 boards and Collin Sexton added 19 points in a game that saw Duncan Robinson knocking down a record seven treys in quarter.

Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Luka Doncic’s era is going pretty well for the Dallas Mavericks. Last season’s Rookie of the Year is playing at an MVP level, averaging almost a triple-double per game. In Wednesday’s 142-94 win over the Golden State Warriors, Doncic went bananas again as he recorded 35 points on 11-for-18 shooting with 10 rebounds and 11 assists.
Players to Watch: Luka Doncic (29.9 PPG, 10.6 RPG, 9.4 APG), Kristaps Porzingis (18.2 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 1.6 APG), Tim Hardaway Jr. (10.9 PPG, 2.0 RPG, 1.6 APG)

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Dallas Mavericks Betting Picks
The biggest question coming into the game for the Cavaliers is how well they can defend the three-ball after that poor defensive performance vs. the Heat. The Mavs, meanwhile, should find a way to get Kristaps Porzingis more involved in the offense because the Latvian looked like a second-rate sidekick next to Doncic during this current stretch.
Moneyline: The Mavericks swept the Cavaliers 3-0 in their last three head-to-heads and should be poised to extend their winning streak to four games. Expect Doncic to drop another excellent all-around stats line as he continues to build his MVP case.
ATS: The Mavericks decimated the Warriors, 142-92, in their last game, while the Heat lost by 24 points to the Heat. The trend suggests a double-digit win and an ATS win for Dallas.
TOTALs: The total for this game will go OVER 220 points. The Mavericks have been scoring really well this season, crossing the 100-point mark in all 14 games. While there’s no assurance Cleveland will score at least 100 in this game, I still feel Dallas’ explosive offense will be enough to make the OVER a wiser NBA over/under pick.
Score Prediction: 125-100 Mavericks
