Why the Wizards can cover

Washington was able to snap out of a losing stretch with a 108-100 win over Charlotte on Monday night, and it has a chance to climb back to the .500 mark on Thursday. Kyle Kuzma led the way with 20 points, while former Maverick Kristaps Porzingis scored 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds. The Wizards received a ton of production from their bench, outscoring the Hornets 50-27 in that category. 

Jordan Goodwin knocked down all seven of his shots from the floor, posting a career-high 17 points in the win. He also had five assists, four rebounds and two blocks to help shoulder the load in place of Bradley Beal (health and safety protocols), who is going to be out again on Thursday. Dallas has failed to cover the spread in six consecutive games, and it has only covered once in its last seven games against Washington. 

Why the Mavericks can cover

Star Luka Doncic was held under 30 points for the first time this season in a loss to Orlando on Wednesday, but he should respond with a strong outing on Thursday. Doncic scored 33 points and dished out 10 assists against Washington last November before scoring 36 points against the Wizards in April. He is averaging 34.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game this season. 

Washington does not have the firepower to match Doncic without Beal, who leads the team with 21.6 points and 5.7 assists per game. Dallas had won four straight games before losing to the Magic, so the Mavericks are still in good form coming into this contest. They have won 15 of the last 20 meetings between these teams, including 10 of the last 13 in Washington.
