Against The Spread Pick
These two teams faced off at the beginning of January and the Mavericks were able to come away with a ten-point win. These teams are pretty similar, but as of late the one big difference has been with the Mavericks defense. Over the last five games they are giving up 61 points per game compared to the Mountaineers who are giving up 73.6 points. That defense is going to be the difference, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see the Mavericks win by ten points again. The Mountaineers are 2-7-1 in their last ten games overall. Back the Mavericks to cash.
Over Under Pick
The Mavericks have the better defense, but there should be plenty of points scored in this game. Over the last five games the Mavericks are averaging 71.2 points while the Mountaineers are averaging 75. Both of these teams ae shooting at least 35 percent from the three point line. This isn’t as strong of play as the side, but the play is with the over.
