Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Dallas Mavericks saw their four-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday at the hands of the Los Angeles Clippers, 110-107. Luka Doncic was an assist shy of a triple-double as he recorded 36 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists. But the Mavericks had no answer to the “Klaw” Kawhi Leonard, who also scored 36 points – some of which in the crucial moments of the game. The Mavs, though, got a bounce-back win after topping the Portland Trail Blazers, 133-125. Doncic tallied 27 points, 9 assists and 6 dimes in the win.
Players to Watch: Luka Doncic (29.1 PPG, 9.7 RPG and 9.0 APG)
Kristaps Porzingis (17.0 PPG, 9.4 RPG and 1.4 APG)
Tim Hardaway Jr. (14.4 PPG, 3.0 RPG and 1.6 APG)
Utah Jazz Betting
The Utah Jazz has been racking up wins since acquiring dynamic combo guard Jordan Clarkson, winning 13 of their last 14 games. In Wednesday’s 129-96 win over the Golden State Warriors, Donovan Mitchell scored 23 points, Rudy Gobert grabbed 15 board and Joe Ingles dished out a team-high 8 assists in the win.
Players to Watch: Donovan Mitchell (24.7 PPG, 4.2 RPG and 4.2 APG)
Bojan Bogdanovic (21.1 PPG, 4.1 RPG and 2.0 APG)
Rudy Gobert (15.6 PPG and 14.5 RPG)

Dallas Mavericks vs Utah Jazz Betting Picks
The Jazz is 9-1 in their last 10 games; the Mavs are 6-4 over that stretch. This is the first time these two Western Conference titans face off this season, so online bookmakers don’t have much data to set a favorable betting odds for them to profit.
Moneyline: Bet on the Mavericks at +136. Don’t get me wrong, the Jazz’s current run has been impressive, but they haven’t really faced an elite team like the Mavs for quite a while. Also, Luka Doncic will dominate his matchup with a much shorter Donovan Mitchell.
ATS: Cash in on the Mavs to cover the 3.5-point spread, Dallas is 4-4-2 against the spread in the last 10 games, but 4-2 in their last six games.
TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 224 points. A Mavericks’ win only means they are able to control the pace of the game. I expect them to score more than 120 points against a very good defensive team.
Score Prediction: 122 – 110 Mavericks
