Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Dallas Mavericks have lost their last two games against the Memphis Grizzlies and the latest was against the Washington Wizards but just a point. They will be entering this game without their two top players in Luka Doncic. Tim Hardaway and Dorian Finney Smith are expected to do more and take over the leadership role for this team as Kristaps Porzingis is questionable for this game. Still, with or without the ‘Unicorn’ it can be seen that they have a good system running under Rick Carlisle and that will be enough for the to get over the hump on the road.

Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Charlotte Hornets are on a four-game losing streak and if it was not for their win against the New York Knicks, this team could have been in a 13-game skid. Their last four games were lost against the Washington Wizards, San Antonio Spurs, Orlando Magic and the latest was against the Houston Rockets by 15 points. Terry Rozier is expected to fill in the huge shoes of Kemba Walker this season and so far he is doing his best with 18 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.2 assists but they need more consistency from Devonte Graham. But if this team needs a revamp, they should try to acquire better bench players to compliment their starters.
Players to Watch: T. Rozier PG 51 GP 51 GS 34.3 MIN 18 PTS 0.8 OR 3.7 DR 4.5 REB 4.2 AST 1.1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.4 TO 2.1 PF 1.8 AST/TO 14.86 PER
