TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH
#513 DALLAS (+6) over Utah at 9 PM EST
Back on December 25th, 2021, Dallas (+13′) visited Utah and lost a tough one falling by the final of 120-116. Locked into a revenge mode and well rested, the Mavericks will be focused and ready to pull off this minor upset over the Jazz.
History will have the Mavs hungry too. In the last 22 meetings between these two teams, Dallas has struggled a touch posting a soft 6-16 SU (11-10-1 ATS) record. Thankfully, head coach Jason Kidd’s troops went into the All-Star break playing some of their best basketball of the season. In their last 25 games, the Mavericks own a solid 19-6 SU and 16-8-1 ATS record including a nearly perfect 6-1 SU and ATS in this run provided they are running with same season revenge. Also, as a guest, Coach Kidd’s boys have been true road warriors notching a dependable 68-40-2 ATS tally in their last 130 battles including an outstanding 54-24-2 ATS provided both teams are rested. With those two parameters live and the Mavs fighting a foe that arrives off an ATS loss, this situation holds a stunning 19-2 ATS mark.
The Jazz are locked into one of their worst wagering roles too. When priced as a favorite and battling an opponent that hits the hardwood with confidence off back-to-back SU and ATS wins, Utah holds a soft 31-61-3 ATS record provided its foe busts in off a straight up victory of seven points or more last. In this setting fighting a non-division opponent, the Jazz fall to a horrible 18-48-3 ATS including a horrible 9-38-3 ATS provided their opponent owns a pointspread won/loss percentage of .500 or better.
Both of these Western Conference warriors are looking to move up in the standings. Even though the Jazz take the floor off a straight up loss in their last game before the break, revenge motivation will help key this pointspread win for the Mavs. Take Dallas. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
