Sunday's NBA slate finishes up with the only game aired live on national TV. The Dallas Mavericks visit the Milwaukee Bucks at 8 p.m. ET and the game will be televised on NBA TV. Dallas enters this matchup at 9-9, but have lost three straight contests.

Meanwhile, the Bucks trail the Boston Celtics by just 1.5 games for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Milwaukee is 13-5 on the year and has won three of five.

Bucks vs. Mavericks Prediction & Pick

The Bucks remain without Khris Middleton this season. Even with his absence, the team plays an elite 11-7 mark against the spread this season. Giannis is picking up the slack with his career-high 31.0 points per game while getting to the line an impressive 12.7 times per game.

Dallas has been a mess on their three-game losing streak. They mustered less than 101 points in two of the losses and gave up 125 to the Boston Celtics in the lone contest they tallied more than 100 points. This game will play slow with two teams that rank in the bottom-half of league pace, but I expect the Bucks' to get the job done at home.

Final Score Prediction: Bucks: 110 | Mavericks: 102

Bucks vs. Mavericks Best Bet

This game will be a race to 105-110 points. Milwaukee plays a pace that ranks just 16th in the league and the Mavericks play the league's slowest pace. I think Giannis still goes for a big night (considering he carries the load at 31.0 points per game) but the Mavs don't have enough offensive firepower to keep pace with the league's best defense.

Bet: Under 215.5 (-110)
