Betting Odds: Mavericks -6.5 (+100) - Over/Under (208.5)

Pick: Mavericks -6.5 (+100)

The Los Angeles Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks will play the fourth game of their first round playoff series here on Sunday afternoon in Dallas. When this series started, it could arguably have gone either way, and so far, Dallas has jumped out to a slight advantage through the first three games of the series. Injuries have plagued Los Angeles throughout the games of this series and they will overcome that throughout this game on Sunday as they look even up this series before heading back to Los Angeles for game five. This should be a close and competitive match up here on Sunday afternoon between the Clippers and Mavericks, as Luka Dončić and Kawhi Leonard square off.

The Los Angeles Clippers have plenty of potential this season, but they have to get past the Dallas Mavericks in the first round if they want to live out some of that potential. They will look to pick up a crucial second victory here on Sunday afternoon and send the series back home tied at two games apiece. This is perhaps the most important game of the Los Angeles Clippers season and potential future as a first round loss could lead to this big three breaking up at some point over the off-season. This is clearly a must win game for the Los Angeles Clippers if they want to have a chance at getting past the Dallas Mavericks because they cannot afford to fall behind three games one against a duo of players like Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving. 

Despite a barrage of three-pointers from James Harden in game three Los Angeles still came up short against Dallas. As the rest of the team was unable to get something going from deep shooting, only 10 of 29 from behind the three-point arch. That is something they will need to improve if they want to pick up a victory here in this one. That is something that has hampered their success throughout the opening three games of this series, as they’ve struggled shooting the basketball. It is certainly something they will need to clean up if they want to pick up a much-needed victory here in Dallas on Sunday.

The Dallas Mavericks will look to build on their two games to one lead here in the fourth game of this series at home against the Clippers. If Dallas can pick up the victory here in this one, it would give them a huge advantage before heading back to Los Angeles for the following game where it would also give them the opportunity to wrap up the series as well. Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving have played well at home this season and that was on display with their blowout victory against Los Angeles in the third game of the series. 

Now they will look to replicate that performance and pick up another victory at home and pretty much put this one on ice as well as put Los Angeles on the brink of elimination in the process. They put on a scoring clinic earlier this week with each of them eclipsing the 20 point mark and in Luka’s case he came one assist short of a triple-double as well. Dallas can take a firm grip on this series with another massive victory here on Sunday afternoon as that is exactly what they will be able to do against the Clippers here in this one.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Dallas is 26-16 at home 

- Dallas is 20-9 as a home favorite 

- Los Angeles is 6-14 as an underdog 

I expect a similar result as we saw in the third game of this series between Dallas and Los Angeles. As I look for the Dallas Mavericks to pick up the victory on their home core with another solid performance from Kyrie Irving and Luka Dončić. Not only do I look for the Dallas Mavericks to pick up the victory here in the fourth game of the series, but I also expect them to cover the spread in the process.
