San Antonio has won 8 straight in the series but are only 4-4 against the spread in those games. I prefer the total here with both teams on under trends. The Spurs are currently on a under run with 8 of their last 10 falling under the posted line while the Mavericks totals have stayed under the line in 3 straight. Take the UNDER 202.5.
