Dallas Mavericks Betting

The Dallas Mavericks ended their Eastern Conference run with a disappointing 2-4 for the last six games. But in those wins, they shocked the Sixers and Bucks. This proves that they can compete with the best even without sophomore guard Luka Doncic. Their last loss was registered against the Toronto Raptors with Krustaps Porzingis doing 19 points and 12 rebounds but he shot 33% from the field. A bright spot was Jalen Brunson who filled up for Doncic and finished with 21 points, 9 assists and four rebounds. The silver lining with the Mavericks right now is getting other players involved and be more comfortable with the team’s system while Doncic is out. So far, so good but the Spurs are starting to get their act up and the Mavericks are glad they are playing at home.
