Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Mavericks are riding on the crest of a two-game winning streak and will be looking for another win. However, Luka Doncic is questionable to play and other Dallas players will need to step up. Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. will be tasked to do so to keep their offense humming. They are holding opponents to 110.5 points per game and may need to tighten up versus Miami.
Players to watch: L. Doncic SG 47 GP 47 GS 32.7 MIN 28.7 PTS 1.4 OR 8.2 DR 9.6 REB 8.7 AST 1 STL 0.2 BLK 4.2 TO 2.5 PF 2.1 AST/TO 28.81 PER

Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat try to end a two-game losing spell to keep its distance from the Philadelphia 76ers in the East. Tasked to lead them will be Jimmy Butler. Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo need to provide support as well if Miami is to notch a win. Offense should be no problem for the Heat but defense needs work. They are allowing opponents to score 109.3 points, something the Mavericks will take advantage of.
