Dallas Mavericks vs Boston Celtics: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Luka Doncic celebrated his 25th birthday in the best possible way leading his Dallas Mavericks to a 136-125 victory over the Toronto Raptors. It was a much needed win for the Mavs who had their hearts broken in the game before that, as they lost on a 59-foot buzzer beater three against Cleveland. Luka finished with 30 points, 16 assists and 10 rebounds in the win over Toronto, but now his Mavs are facing the best team in the NBA. It’ll be a homecoming of sorts for Kyrie Irving who had a brief stint with the Celtics. Dallas comes into the game as a 10-point underdog, something we don’t see happen often. This has been a tough match-up for any team in the NBA, in the last 15 meetings Dallas has just 5 wins. However, they have been able to hold their own in games at TD Garden, covering the spread 10 times in their last 14 visits.

Only the Boston Celtics can stop the Boston Celtics this season. That’s a phrase you will hear a lot moving forward as the Celtics are running away with the best record in the Eastern Conference. They have an 8-game advantage over the 2nd seeded Cavs and Bucks, right now this team is on a 9-game win streak and has looked unstoppable after the All-Star break. They just dismantled the Philadelphia 76ers 117-99 at home, their 3rd win by double-digits since the restart. They’ve won 5 straight in their own arena, adding to their NBA best 27-3 SU record there. There are no injury concerns for head coach Joe Mazzulla and if it stays that way come playoff time, the rest of the NBA is in trouble. Boston is looking for a 6th straight win in games against Southwest Division opponents.

Boston Celtics Point Spread Prediction

Boston Celtics -9.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

These two teams matched up in Dallas in the last week of January and Boston came out on top 119-110. The only question here is can Dallas keep things close, because I cannot see them winning here. Luka Doncic is on the injury report with a ankle issue, if he’s not at 100% then the Mavs are going to be in trouble here. I’m backing the Celtics to cover.

Dallas Mavericks vs Boston Celtics Total Points Prediction: Under 234.5

Under 234.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

The Mavericks know the only way they can stay in this game is to slow down the tempo, otherwise they cannot handle all the offensive weapons the Celtics have. We saw the 76ers try this strategy against Boston the other day and the game finished with just 216 points. For the Celtics, their last 4 of 5 games have all gone under tonight’s projected total of 236.5 points. As we edge closer to the postseason, teams will be paying way more attention to the defensive end, so look for the unders numbers to inflate moving forward. This bet has cashed in 13 of 19 for Boston and in 12 of 18 for Dallas. In head-to-head meetings it’s been a similar story with 6 of the last 8 games cashing on the under. The two teams are averaging just 216.2 points per game in the last 10 games between each other, we could be in for one of those high intense defense affairs here. These are the 4th and 9th best defensive rated teams over the last 10 games in the NBA, so I’m rolling with the under in this one.
