Dallas Mavericks Betting

The Dallas Mavericks have been climbing up the NBA Western Conference standings and they find themselves at third place behind the Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors. This team has won seven of their last ten games and thanks to Kristaps Porzingis who returned from injury. However, Luka Doncic will be out for this game and will return afterward. This is a tough break as people want to see Doncic go up against Chris Paul. Jalen Brunson is expected to carry the load along with Dorian Finney-Smith and Tim Hardaway Jr. This team is now on back-to-back wins and an upset victory will put them tied at second place.
