The Dallas Mavericks (39-28) play the second end of a home-and-home with the Cleveland Cavaliers (21-46) Sunday at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Mavericks vs. Cavaliers odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Mavericks rolled the Cavaliers by a 110-90 count in Dallas Friday night, easily covering a 10.5-point number as the Under (217) connected.

Dallas has won three straight, and six of the past seven while going 5-2 against the spread during the span.

The Cavaliers are on a nine-game slide, and they haven’t covered in any of the outings, either. Each of the past five losses for Cleveland has been by 16 or more points.

Mavericks at Cavaliers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Mavericks 119, Cavaliers 104

Money line (ML)

The Mavericks (-600) will cost you six times your potential return. And while the Cavaliers (+425) have shown no signs of life lately, you cannot risk that kind of money for such a small payoff. Look to the spread instead.

AVOID.

Against the spread (ATS)

The MAVERICKS -11 (-110) come with some risk, as playing double-digit favorites on the road is not a slam-dunk play.

But the Cavaliers +11 (-110) have had no heart lately, and they look very disinterested in winning again this season.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 217.5 (-110) is the lean here. The Over has cashed in four of the past five for the Mavericks on the road, and the Over is 10-3 in their past 13 on the road against teams with a losing home mark.

The Over is also 5-1 in Cleveland’s past six at home, and 4-1 in the past five as a home underdog.
