San Antonio Spurs vs Dallas Mavericks: Prediction (2024)

San Antonio Spurs vs Dallas Mavericks: Prediction (2024)

The San Antonio Spurs will face the Dallas Mavericks on February 14 (Wednesday) at the American Airlines Center. Both teams will be facing each other for the third time this season, with the Mavericks leading the season series 2-0. In their most recent game on December 23, 2023, Dallas won by 144-119. Luka Doncic scored 39 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in the game. The Spurs lead the all-time matchup 115-82 against the Mavericks. 

 

Preview 

The Spurs are in last place in the Western Conference with an 11-43 record. However, their most recent game on Monday was an emphatic 122-99 win over the Toronto Raptors. Victor Wembanyama led San Antonio with 27 points, 14 rebounds and 10 blocks in 29 minutes, becoming the first rookie to post these figures in less than 30 minutes. The Mavericks are on a five-game winning streak, tied with the Golden State Warriors for the longest in the league. Dallas is seventh in the Western Conference and has won seven of its last 10 games. In the most recent 112-104 win against the Washington Wizards on Monday, Donic scored 26 points, 15 assists and 11 rebounds. 

 

Starting lineup 

The Spurs have Marcus Morris Sr. and Charles Bassey on the injury report. They are expected to start with Trey Jones, Devin Vassell, Julien Champagne, Jeremy Sochan and Victor Wembanyama. On the other hand, the Mavericks will be without Dante Exum. Luka Donic and Kyrie Irving are probable but, in all likelihood, should start. Maxi Kleber and Dereck Lively are also questionable. They will likely start with Doncic, Irving, Josh Green, P.J. Washington and Daniel Gafford.

 

Betting tips & Prediction 

Victor Wembanyama has an over/under of 22.5 points for the game. Although he is capable of scoring more than 22.5 points, this game has a great chance of being a blowout win for Dallas. If that happens, Wembanyama could sit for most of the fourth quarter and thus end the game with less than 22.5 points. Doncic’s over/under is 32.5 points, which is below his season average of 34.3 points. Doncic leads the league in scoring and can do his best to maintain the average. This essentially means that Donic will finish the game with over 32.5 points.
