The Dallas Mavericks snapped their two-game losing streak with a 109-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. On Tuesday, they hope to build a winning streak when they travel to face the Golden State Warriors, a team they've struggled against, going 5-15 SU in their last 20 games.

Meanwhile, the Warriors are in a huge funk. They've lost their last eight games and have been awful at home this season, as they've gone 6-13 at home this season.

Tuesday's game takes place at the Chase Center with tip-off slated for 10:30 p.m. EST.

The Mavericks' offense aims to overwhelm the Warriors

Dallas' offense on the road has been outstanding, as they average 117 points per game on 45% shooting. And they're fantastic from behind the arc, making 36% of their three-point shots.

On Tuesday, they face a Golden State defense that struggles to contain opponents. The Warriors surrender 111 points per game on 46% shooting.

With the Mavericks only two and a half games back from Houston for the Southwest Conference lead, every game matters for Dallas. And its offense could have a huge performance on Tuesday.

One player to watch is Luka Doncic. He's been lethal against Golden State, averaging 33 points per game and he's been unbelievable from behind the arc, where he makes 61% of his three-point attempts. Given the Warriors' inability to guard him, he could be in for a huge night.

The Warriors looking to snap out of their offensive funk

One of the reasons why Golden State is on its current losing streak concerns its lack of offensive consistency. In their last six games, they've scored fewer than 104 points in each of them.

On the season, they average 106 points per game on their home court on 43% shooting. On Tuesday, they face a Dallas defense that does well on the road, containing teams to 110 points per game on 44% shooting.

One player who must come up strong for Golden State is Alec Burks, who leads the team in scoring. However, he's struggled against Dallas, where he averages 13.5 points per game on 36% shooting.

He must snap tendency against the Mavericks or else the Warriors might continue their offensive slump.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Mavericks hold the edge on both sides of the ball. Offensively, they've been good as they make 45% of their shots on the road. And Doncic has had Golden State's number as of late, as he makes 61% of his three-point shots against the Warriors. These factors illustrate Dallas should have no problems scoring. Defensively, they face a Golden State offense that's been in a slump, as they haven't scored more than 104 points in each of its past six games. Given the Mavericks' ability to limit teams scoring opportunities, I like for the Mavericks to keep the Warriors' slump going. All told, Dallas wins this one.

Prediction: Dallas

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I look for this game to be lower-scoring due to Golden State's offensive struggles. The Warriors have scored fewer than 105 points in each of their last six games. And Dallas's defense is no slouch on the road, as they contain teams to 44% shooting. What's more, the Warriors are accustomed to playing in lower-scoring games at home where they're 10-3 in the Under in their last 13 home games. These factors make me believe this trend continues on Tuesday, so I'm taking the Under in this one.

Prediction: Under
