PHILADELPHIA 76ERS VS. DALLAS MAVERICKS PREDICTIONS

After earning the top spot in the East with a record of 49-23 SU last year, Philadelphia stumbled out to a surprisingly mediocre start to this season, as the Sixers kicked things off with a frustrating 16-16 SU and 13-18-1 ATS stretch – while generating just 105.4 PPG offensively across that span.

The Sixers have been phenomenal as of late though, considering Philadelphia enters Friday’s contest riding an impressive 15-4 SU and 12-7 ATS run – while averaging 112 PPG offensively and allowing just 104 PPG defensively across that window.

On the other hand, Dallas also posted surprisingly pedestrian start to the season, as the Mavericks kicked things off with a lackluster 16-18 SU and 13-21 ATS skid – with ten of those losses coming by seven points or more.

The Mavericks have played solid basketball since New Year’s Eve though, considering Dallas enters Friday boasting records of 13-5 SU and 10-8 ATS across their last 18 games – while surrendering roughly 101 PPG to their opponents across that timeframe.

I’ll lay the points with Philly here, as the Mavericks are 7-5 SU across their last 12 games, while averaging just 107.8 PPG offensively during that span – setting the stage for another unfavorable matchup against a Sixers squad that’s averaging 112 PPG across their current 15-4 SU run.

PHILADELPHIA 76ERS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 31-20
  • ATS: 25-25-1
  • O/U: 20-29-2

After finishing first in the East with a record of 49-23 SU last year, Philadelphia posted an incredibly frustrating start to this season, as the Sixers opened with a head-scratching 16-16 SU skid – while averaging less than 106 PPG offensively across that span.

Joel Embiid single-handedly carried the Sixers through January though, considering Philadelphia has scored 112 PPG across their latest 15-4 SU run – highlighted by Embiid generating 33.4 PPG, 10.7 REB, 4.6 AST, and 1.3 BLK during that timeframe.

DALLAS MAVERICKS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 29-23
  • ATS: 26-26
  • O/U: 18-33-1

After a disappointing first-round exit from last year’s playoffs, Dallas kept that same ball rolling with a slow start to this season, as the Mavericks opened with a lackluster 16-18 and 13-21 ATS skid – while getting tagged as favorites in five of those SU losses.

The Mavericks have turned things around with excellent defense as of late though, considering Dallas enters Friday’s matchup riding a sturdy 13-5 SU run – which includes tough SU victories over the Warriors, Grizzlies, Nuggets, and Bulls.

The total has gone OVER in five straight Mavericks' games. (AP)

PHILADELPHIA 76ERS VS. DALLAS MAVERICKS HEAD-TO-HEAD

The Sixers swept a two-game regular-season set against Dallas last year, with both matchups staying well under the total at an average of 208 PPG. The year before that, the Mavericks swept a two-game regular-season set against Philadelphia – while both of those matchups also stayed under at an average of 207.5 PPG.

KEY PLAYERS TO WATCH

  • PHI: Joel Embiid - C (29.1 PPG, 10.8 REB, 4.4 AST)
  • PHI: Tobias Harris - SF (18.9 PPG, 7.4 REB, 3.7 AST)
  • DAL: Luka Doncic - PG (26 PPG, 8.8 REB, 8.9 AST)
  • DAL: Jalen Brunson - SG (15.8 PPG, 3.8 REB, 5.5 AST)

PHILADELPHIA 76ERS VS. DALLAS MAVERICKS BETTING CONCLUSION

After posting back-to-back losses to the Thunder and Magic, the Mavericks enter Friday’s contest as narrow home underdogs against the Sixers at American Airlines Center – marking the ninth time Philadelphia has been favored across their last ten games.

I’ll lay the points with Philly here, as the Sixers are now 15-4 SU since December 26th, while averaging 112 PPG offensively and allowing just 104 PPG defensively across that timeframe – likely presenting a steep uphill battle for a Mavs’ squad that’s scored 108 PTS or less in eight of their last 12 games (107.8 PPG).

PHILADELPHIA 76ERS VS. DALLAS MAVERICKS BETTING TRENDS

  • The Mavericks are 5-2 ATS in their last seven matchups against Philadelphia.
  • The Sixers are 6-3 SU in their last nine matchups against Dallas.
  • The Sixers are 8-1 SU in their last nine road games.
  • The total has gone OVER in five straight Mavericks' games.
