Profitable data-driven system picks

The Mavericks take on the Magic on Monday night, with Dallas coming off a 17-point win over the Nets. Dallas has covered in three of its last five games and has been a top-10 defense over that stretch per NBA Advanced Stats.

Orlando has not had the same success as Dallas as of late, failing to cover in any of the games during its three-game losing streak.

Magic All-Star Nikola Vucevic has been on a scoring tear, putting up 27.3 points per game on 48.4% shooting over his last 10 games. Dallas will need to keep him from an efficient night if it wants to succeed on Monday.

That will be immensely difficult if Kristaps Porzingis is out. He is listed as probable due to ongoing issues with his back.

Dallas beat Orlando by 14 points last time out, but according to our PRO Report, sharps are backing the Magic in the rematch.
