Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks Prediction & Betting Tips - NBA

 by Joseph King | in NBA Prediction

The final day of the regular season in the NBA sees the first-place OKC Thunder looking to solidify their spot as the number one seed against the fifth-place Dallas Mavericks. The Thunder are involved in a three-way tie with the Nuggets and Timberwolves, all of which hold identical 56-25 records. OKC has the tiebreaker advantage over the Nuggets after sweeping all four regular season contests. In order to finish the season as the top team in the West, the Thunder need to win this game against the Mavericks and see either: the Nuggets win or the Timberwolves lose. They would still finish as the number one seed with a loss only if both Denver and Minnesota also lose in their games.

Oklahoma City comes into this matchup off the back of a 125-107 home victory over the Bucks on Friday, marking their fourth win in a row. The Thunder have been superb at the Paycom Center this season and have turned their home court into a real fortress. The hosts have won 32 of their 40 games at this venue which is behind only the Celtics and the Nuggets for the best home records in the league. This is the last of a four-game homestand for OKC as they look to enter the playoffs on a five-game winning streak.

With their record of 50-31, the Mavericks are locked into the fifth seed as they trail the Clippers by one game (Clippers tiebreaker advantage) and lead the Pelicans by one game (Mavs tiebreaker advantage). That means that Dallas will face off once again with the LA Clippers in the playoffs in what is sure to be a highly-entertaining battle. and the current betting line displays that. They’ve already announced that stars Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving will miss out for the season finale and they are likely going to rest a few other players as well. This is reflected in the betting lines as the Mavericks come into this clash as massive underdogs.

Our Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks Prediction

It’s a big number for sure but we just can’t envision Dallas being competitive in this game, while the Thunder have every reason to push the pace and secure a big victory. Without Luka and Kyrie, who account for an enormous share of the Mavs' offense, this should be one-way traffic. The hosts shoud be able to lock up a 20+ point win, although a backdoor cover late on is always a threat. Our Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks prediction is for the Thunder to win and cover the -17.5 spread.
