The Dallas Mavericks have worked their way up to the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference, and may have a path to get to the Finals. They'll put their newly minted No. 3 seed on the line tonight against the Washington Wizards. With the Wizards officially eliminated out of playoff contention, can the Mavericks get a dominant win over them tonight?

Here are the odds for the matchup via WynnBET.

Mavericks vs. Wizards Prediction and Pick

When the Mavericks are this big of a favorite, they nearly never lose. Dallas is 10-1 straight up when at least a 9-point favorite. When it comes to the spread, the Mavericks are 7-4. Dallas has a top 10 net rating over the last 10 games. While they have a lot in their favor, the Wizards have been known to shock a few teams this season.

The Wizards are 2-2 ATS and straight up as 9-point underdogs. They also beat the Mavericks in the first meeting between the two. A lot has changed since then. They swapped Kristaps Porzingis and Spencer Dinwiddie, which will be a fun story line to follow tonight.

Yet at the end of the day, I have to side with the Mavericks. Luka Doncic is playing at an MVP level right now and I don't anticipate the Wizards slowing him down. The guard play from the Mavericks will eventually be too much and that will push them over the edge tonight.

Lean: Mavericks -9 (-110)
