Wednesday night takes us to Dallas for a middle of the week matchup between two quality teams here in this one. As the Cleveland Cavaliers head south to face off with the Dallas Mavericks with both of these teams looking to pick up a solid victory over a playoff team here on Wednesday night, as both of them look to continue decent starts to the regular season. Both of these teams made the postseason last year, and both of them will be looking to make another postseason appearance this year and a victory in this game would provide a huge momentum boost for them throughout the remainder of the calendar year.
It’s been a roller coaster of a season so far for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they have dealt with injuries and inconsistency throughout the early part of the year. They will look to take care of the inconsistency with a quality performance here on Wednesday night on the road against the Dallas Mavericks as they look to get some momentum rolling in the right direction heading into 2024. Cleveland comes into this game four games above the .500 mark through their first 30 games of the regular season and they will look to pick up their 18th win of the season here on Wednesday night on the road in Texas.
With Darius Garland and Evan Mobley set to miss an extended amount of time more responsibility is going to fall on the shoulders of Donovan Mitchell, and we have seen time and time again he is more than capable of stepping up and delivering. Cleveland does come into this game with a little bit of momentum after picking up a victory over Chicago in their previous contest. They have won four out of their last five on the year as they are picking up steam heading into the end of the calendar year. Another victory here in this game on the road would be a massive momentum boost for the Cleveland Cavaliers over a top team like the Dallas Mavericks.

The Dallas Mavericks are off to a quality start to the regular season and they will look to keep the momentum rolling throughout this game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. Dallas comes into this game six games above the .500 mark through their first 30 games of the regular season and they will look for their 19th victory of the year here on Wednesday night at home against Cleveland. Luca Doncic and Kyrie Irving have been playing solid basketball throughout the early part of the year, however, Kyrie Irving is set to miss this game, and Luka Dončić is currently listed as a gametime decision.
This could be a game where Dallas has to go into battle without both of their top superstars. Donovan Mitchell is also listed as a gametime decision for the Cleveland Cavaliers so this game can end up being a vest for anyone who likes to watch superstar players do their thing. Dallas comes into this game with a little bit of momentum after back-to-back wins against the Phoenix Suns and the San Antonio Spurs and they will look for a third consecutive victory here on Wednesday night at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Dallas looks to make their way up the standings and move out of their spot in fifth place of the Western Conference heading into 2024.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Dallas is 7-3 as a home favorite
- Dallas is 8-6 at home
- Dallas is 5-2 against the Eastern Conference
This game has the opportunity to be close, and competitive throughout the entirety of the contest. However, with both teams beating up and bruised coming out of the Christmas season, this can arguably go either way here in Dallas between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Dallas Mavericks. In the end, I do look for the Dallas Mavericks to pick up the victory at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night and I look for the injuries to be too much for Cleveland to overcome in this game. Not only do I look for the Dallas Mavericks to pick up the victory at home here in this one, but I look for them to cover the spread over the Cleveland Cavaliers as well.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
