Dallas Mavericks Betting
Dallas Mavericks tries to notch another win against the Hawks, hoping to move up the Western Conference. They are two games behind the Houston Rockets, occupying 7th spot in the division. Head coach Rick Carlisle will bank on Luka Doncic once more despite a nagging ankle injury. Kristaps Pozingis will be another man to watch out for as he has been picking up as of late. Though they are struggling, the Mavs cannot take the Hawks for granted with Trae Young at the helm.

Atlanta Hawks Betting
Despite being out of the playoff scene, expect the Atlanta Hawks to remain competitive. Trae Young remains a threat and the Mavs need to pay attention. With the season lost, Atlanta is trying to find the right formula to success moving forward. Aside from Young, John Collins and DeAndre Hunter have been providing support. With experience seen as one of their problems, new players Clint Capella and Dewayne Dedmon could change all that. However, those investments are expect to show by next season.
