Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Dallas Mavericks are now on a three-game losing streak even if they had Kristaps Porzingis back. This team has not been performing well in this NBA Eastern Conference swing as they lost their last two games heading here. The most recent one was against the Toronto Raptors in their adopted hometown of Tampa Bay by a wide margin of 23 points. It was an off night for Luka Doncic doing just 15 points but he had nine assists and seven rebounds. Porzingis had his best game since returning with 23 points, nine rebounds, and two blocks. The Mavs had three other players in double-figure scoring but the defense has been lacking.

Indiana Pacers Betting
The Indiana Pacers were involved in the most recent blockbuster trade in the NBA and that gave them Caris LeVert from the Brooklyn Nets. Unfortunately, they will have to wait for him to get better as LeVert is found to have a condition that needs to be treated. The Pacers are willing to wait for him to get better but the biggest blow recently was the injury to center Myles Turner. He will be expected to miss a significant amount of time and Domantas Sabonis has to carry a bigger load in the backcourt. Malcolm Brogdon should get a good acid test as he faces Luka Doncic.
Players to Watch: M. Brogdon PG 13 GP 13 GS 36.6 MIN 22.2 PTS 0.7 OR 3.3 DR 4 REB 7.5 AST 1.8 STL 0.2 BLK 1.7 TO 1.8 PF 4.4 AST/TO 21.55 PER
