Ryley’s Daily Basketball Pick: March 30th
The Dallas Mavericks will be visiting the Cleveland Cavaliers at 7 eastern. Dallas comes into this game ranked 4th in the western conference battling to catch the 3rd place struggling Warriors. Overall the Mavericks are 43-33 ATS and have covered four out of their last five. As road favorites ATS Dallas is 10-6.
The Cavaliers are trending in the wrong direction, covering zero out of their last five and two out of their last ten. The Mavericks are 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings in Cleveland. The Cavaliers big man Evan Mobley, will not be available for tonight’s game. With the Cavaliers on their third string center, this means the Mavericks will have a clear paint for easy buckets and second chance opportunities.
Expect Luka Doncic to keep the momentum rolling after a huge game last night, but my Xfactor for tonight's game is Spencer Dinwiddie. The Mavericks have a clear advantage with a better bench led by Dinwiddie. The Mavericks bench will put this game out of reach as I don’t see Cleveland having a solution for them.
Dallas is turning it on down the stretch as the Cavaliers have let off the gas. I expect Luka and the boys to keep the wheels turning through Cleveland. My pick Dallas Mavericks (-4)
