The Lakers are still an automatic fade, but with the NBA Odds in favor of the Mavs by nearly double figures, the better play on this one looks like a two-team teaser with the spread and total.

When the NBA Odds are in less supply, it’s time to bust out the teaser. The Mavs and Lakers game is a perfect opportunity to do just that and tonight with the NBA Odds having the Mavs as -9 ½ favorites against the suddenly auto-fade Lakers, I am all over this one.

Teasing the Mavs down to -4 ½ is the easy part of this one. The Mavs are still somehow fighting for the playoffs and tonight they get a chance to beat up on a team that has no interest in winning. The Lakers are 0-6-1 ATS since they stated full tank mode right before the break, while the Mavs have covered five in a row and are 4-1 SU in their last five games.

The main reason for Dallas’ success lately has been their defense. In their last seven games they have allowed only 93.7 points per game and against a team like the Lakers, this should be an easy under for our teaser when we get to add five more points.
