Dallas vs. Oklahoma City, 12/29/2011 20:00
Point Spread: -5½/-103 Oklahoma City
The Dallas Mavericks have opened with a brutal schedule, and they clearly haven't been up to the challenge. It appears it's going to take a while for this team to get over their championship from last season. Players from that title team clearly aren't motivated in the early going.
Miami got their revenge with a 105-94 victory over Dallas in the opener, which was a bigger blowout than the final score would indicate. The Denver Nuggets also crushed the Mavericks 93-115 in their following game. Now, it's OKlahoma City's time for revenge.
The Thunder are going to be highly motivated heading into this one after losing to Dallas in the Western Conference Finals last year. This team already appears to be on a mission after opening the season 3-0, including a 98-95 road victory over Memphis last night.
The Mavericks are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following a double-digit loss at home. Dallas is 15-35-2 ATS in their last 51 Thursday games. The Thunder are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 Thursday games. Bet Oklahoma City Thursday.
