The Rockets won again last night and the Mavericks won as well, but now they play one another on no rest. When playing each other the scores have been tight and low and I am betting on that tonight once again in my NBA Expert Picks.

Dallas Mavericks vs Houston Rockets

Our two teaser legs tonight are in the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets. The Mavericks may be banged up and not playing well, but Houston played last night in Oklahoma City too. However, the key to this one is not the back to back, but the fact that these two always play each other close.

The average margin of victory between these two in their last five meetings is only 6.8 points and in their last three meetings, it's only 3.6 points. The under has also cashed in their last three meetings and only two this season.

So, with the back to back in play, I think we see another low scoring and close game between these two, meaning the Mavericks at +18 are a steal for value in this one. When you add teasing the total up to 214 ½ it's a great teaser for your Saturday NBA Picks. Houston is allowing only 98.7 points per game in divisional games, while the Mavs are scoring 87.2 points per game in six divisional games this season while allowing just 91.7.
