Pick Details

(553) New York vs. Dallas (554) 9:30 PM | Fri, Apr 16 2021
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1100) - Final Score DAL 109 at NY 117
-4.5 DAL (-110) @ Pointsbet

This is a 10* NON-CONFERENCE ELITE OF THE ELITE on the Mavericks.

After seven straight covers and four straight straight-up victories in a row, I think New York takes a step back here.

With a five-game home stand against four-straight opponents under .500 (New Orleans, Charlotte, Atlanta and Toronto), this is also a natural let-down/look-ahead "trap" for the visitors here.

Dallas has lost three straight ATS, and had lost two straight SU before a tight 114-113 road win at Memphis in its latest action.

With Sacramento and Detroit coming to town next, this is a prime spot of the season for the Mavericks and I expect them to make the most of it.

Look for New York to throw in the white flag early and for the home side to pull away in the second half.

Lay the points, the play is DALLAS.

Good luck, NP


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
