Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Dallas Mavericks are losing a lot of players in quarantine for this game and that includes Josh Richardson, Dorian Finney-Smith, Dwight Powell, Jalen Brunson, and Maxi Kleber. Help is coming with the “Unicorn” Kristaps Porzingis playing his second game back. It may not be enough but the team now has their two top players and will try to create problems on their opponents. Porzongis had 16 points and four rebounds in his return and expect those numbers to get up. Willy Cauley-Stein will be playing heavy minutes at the center position while Tim Hardaway Jr. should step it up as well.
Players to watch: L. Doncic PG 9 GP 9 GS 34.1 MIN 27.4 PTS 0.9 OR 8.7 DR 9.6 REB 8.3 AST 1.2 STL 1 BLK 4.4 TO 1.6 PF 1.9 AST/TO 26.36 PER
T. Hardaway Jr. SF 10 GP 8 GS 30.7 MIN 18.4 PTS 0.1 OR 3.7 DR 3.8 REB 2.3 AST 0.8 STL 0.2 BLK 1.2 TO 1.4 PF 1.9 AST/TO 17.26 PER
K. Porzingis F 1 GP 1 GS 21 MIN 16 PTS 0 OR 4 DR 4 REB 0 AST 0 STL 2 BLK 0 TO 3 PF 0 AST/TO 16.51 PER.
Milwaukee Bucks Betting
The Milwaukee Bucks now find themselves as the third-best team in the NBA Eastern Conference and tied with the Indiana Pacers with a record of 8-4. This team is on a roll winning three consecutive games and their most recent match was against the Detroit Pistons on the road. Jrue Holiday is listed as questionable for this game and it should be minor. Giannis Antetokuonmpo had a triple-double of 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists and has been playing like an MVP during the winning streak. Brook Lopez has been doing well along with their off-season acquisition in Bobby Portis.
Players to Watch: G. Antetokounmpo PF 11 GP 11 GS 31.2 MIN 26.2 PTS 1.6 OR 8.5 DR 10.1 REB 5.5 AST 1.3 STL 1.2 BLK 3.5 TO 3.4 PF 1.6 AST/TO 26.93 PER
K. Middleton SF 12 GP 12 GS 31.9 MIN 21.6 PTS 0.9 OR 5.4 DR 6.3 REB 5.7 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 2.6 TO 2.6 PF 2.2 AST/TO 23.37 PER
J. Holiday PG 12 GP 12 GS 31.5 MIN 15.2 PTS 1 OR 3.3 DR 4.3 REB 5 AST 2.2 STL 0.7 BLK 1.4 TO 2.2 PF 3.5 AST/TO 19.66 PER.
