Dallas Mavericks vs Atlanta Hawks 10/21/2021 Betting Odds
Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Dallas Mavericks have been hyped as one of the up-and-coming teams in the NBA. For the past two seasons, this team has lost in the first round and this is the season that they will need to get over the hump or retool for the future. Luka Doncic has emerged as one of the best talents in the NBA and it is now up to Mark Cuban to give him the best support roster around him. Kristaps Porzingis has been the main help for Doncic but has not panned out as expected. The 7-foot-4 center along with Doncic has been injured at times and has not maximized their chemistry.

Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks made it all the way to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals and were a few games to going to the next level. This team overachieved and set themselves a very high bar this season. Trae Young has been the team’s cornerstone player and management has given him great support to make a good run in the conference. Bogdan Bogdanovic is healthy and will start this season along with Clint Capela. John Collins shrugged off his doubters after being a key contributor last season along with veteran players Danilo Gallinari and Lou Williams. So much upside to the Hawks and they should look to make a strong start.
Players to Watch: T. Young PG 63 GP 63 GS 33.7 MIN 25.3 PTS 0.6 OR 3.3 DR 3.9 REB 9.4 AST 0.8 STL 0.2 BLK 4.1 TO 1.8 PF 2.3 AST/TO 23.05 PER
