Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Los Angeles Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks 11/26/2019 – Two of the league’s top-6 scoring teams will collide in Big D on Tuesday, as the Los Angeles Clippers play the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center. This will be the first of three regular-season matches between two elite West squads this season. The Clippers opened as slight NBA Moneyline favorite (-135) to win straight up after gutted out wins against a pair of elite opponents and booking a blowout loss against a sub .500 team. The Mavericks, though, should provide the visiting team another stern test since their star player Luka Doncic has been putting up monster numbers through the first four weeks of the season.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting
The Clippers are still miles away from reaching their full potential both on offense and defense. However, their back-to-back wins over the Boston Celtics 107-104 and the Houston Rockets 122-119 showed how deadly the trio of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Lou Williams can be in the final minutes of a tight ballgame. Sunday’s 134-109 win over the Pelicans also showcased their depth as Montrezl Harrell came off the bench and tied his career-high 34 points on 13-for-18 shooting.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (25.7 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 5.5 APG), Paul George (25.0 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 4.7 APG), Lou Williams (22.5 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 5.8 APG)
Dallas Mavericks Betting
It has been a Luka Doncic show for the Dallas Mavericks, who cruised to their fifth straight win on Sunday behind another masterful game from the Slovenian phenom. Doncic recorded 41 points, 6 rebounds, and 10 assists to lead Dallas to a 137-123 win over the Houston Rockets. Tim Hardaway also scored 31 points and Kristaps Porzingis racked up a double-double with 23 points and 13 rebounds in the win.
Players to Watch: Luka Doncic (30.6 PPG, 10.1 RPG, 9.8 APG), Kristaps Porzingis (18.5 PPG, 9.1 RPG, 1.6 APG), Tim Hardaway Jr.(12.4 PPG, 2.1 RPG, 2.0 APG)

Los Angeles Clippers vs Dallas Mavericks Betting Picks
Online Sportsbooks are expecting another tight contest that will surely show the true characters of these two high-performing squads. The Clippers will again lean on Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on both ends, while Lou Williams will provide the firepower needed to outgun opponents. The Mavericks’ offense will continue to revolve around Luka Doncic’s all-around brilliance, but they would also need another guy or two to step in order to beat the Clippers.
Moneyline: The Clippers are 2-1 in the last three games against the Mavericks, including a 121-112 win in their last meeting on February 25. Make no mistakes; the home team is going to be a handful for the Clippers especially if Doncic goes off early. Then again, the Clippers’ last three victories proved they are just too hard to stop in the clutch with all the shot-makers they have on the floor.
ATS: This game will feature multiple rallies and lead changes, but I can still see the Clippers pulling away with key baskets late. There’s some value on the Clippers taking an ATS win since a 2-point handicap would hardly affect their chances.
TOTALs: The total for this game opened at 227 points. OVER looks like a slamdunk choice here since the Clippers and the Mavericks rank 6th and 3rd in points per game. Expect another furious pace with lots of treys and fast transitions points.
Score Prediction: 124-120 Clippers
