Dallas Mavericks Betting

The Dallas Mavericks are in a good position to chase the Los Angeles Lakers for the fifth-best record in the NBA Western Conference standings. This team just needs to stay put and win enough games for the home stretch. Luka Doncic will be resting in this game and Kristaps Porzingis will have added time to heal from his injuries. Tim Hardaway Jr. is expected to lead the team while both their European star combo is on the sidelines. So far, this team has been doing well winning four of their last five games and much thanks to the team’s depth for stepping up.

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons are just coasting through the rest of the season and just hoping to secure a good chance to have higher chances in the upcoming NBA lottery. This team has the worst record in the NBA Eastern Conference at 19-43 and currently tied with the Orlando Magic at 19-43. They are third to the last in the entire NBA and that gives them a prime chance to secure at least the third overall pick in the 2021 NBA draft. Jerami Grant has been doing well for the team but does expect the rookies in Killian Hayes, Saddiq Bey and Isaiah Stewart to have the spotlight before the season ends.

Players to Watch: J. Grant SF 53 GP 53 GS 34.1 MIN 22.5 PTS 0.7 OR 4 DR 4.6 REB 2.8 AST 0.7 STL 1.1 BLK 2 TO 2.3 PF 1.4 AST/TO 17.1 PER
