We have a Southwest Division NBA matchup to consider when the Dallas Mavericks meet the San Antonio Spurs for game four of their four-game season series. The Mavericks are 39-26 this season and enter this matchup coming off a home loss to Indiana where they failed to cover a -6 point spread. San Antonio is hoping to end a two-game losing streak where they failed to cover the spread in each of those two losses.

Tuesday marks a one-game road trip and Dallas is 20-11 away from home and was 2-3 ATS over their last five games.

Doncic scores an average of 28.5 points per game with 9.4 caroms and leads the Mavs with 8.7 assists per game.
