The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Dallas Mavericks face off on Saturday, December 2. The game will tip off at 9 p.m. ET from the American Airlines Center. The Thunder are coming off a dominant win over the Lakers, and the Mavericks most recently lost to the Grizzlies.

Jalen Williams (hip) is questionable for the Thunder. The Mavericks are missing Maxi Kleber (toe), while Kyrie Irving (foot) and Tim Hardaway Jr (back) are questionable. Luka Doncic is available after missing Friday’s game for personal reasons.

The Thunder enter as a 4-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the total set at 235. Oklahoma City is -175 on the moneyline while Dallas is +145.

Thunder vs. Mavericks, 9 p.m. ET

Pick ATS: Thunder -4

The Mavs are plagued with injuries right now, and after the Thunder’s big win over the Lakers, I like them to cover on the road in this matchup. The Thunder are 13-4-1 ATS this season, and the Mavericks have lost two of their last three home games. This should be a lock for OKC, even with Doncic set to return to the lineup.

Over/Under: Over 235

Dallas ranks sixth in the NBA in team points per game, and Oklahoma City ranks fifth. Despite some potential key absences on the Mavericks’ side of the ball, we should still expect to see a high-scoring game.
