Dallas Mavericks +11.5 (-105) @ Toronto Raptors
For our third play of the day, we are taking the Mavs to cover at the Raptors. Supporting this pick, we note that teams that won two games and then dropped their most recent out are 344-283-9 ATS (55%) when their upcoming game is the second of a road trip. Further, when less than 50% of spread bets are backing said team, profitability is even more impressive:
Also, this situation represents a less than an ideal spot for Toronto. Home teams favored by double-digits off a four to six game win streak and the backing of the majority of spread bets have covered at only a 42% clip.
