Dallas Mavericks vs Brooklyn Nets Prediction And Betting Odds

Dallas Mavericks vs Brooklyn Nets: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Good things usually happen when a team gets an All-Star caliber player back from injury, let alone two of them. The Mavs pulled away in the 2nd half of last night’s 118-102 win at Philadelphia, Kyrie Irving led all scorers with 23 points and 8 assists. It’s a short turnaround as they head straight to Brooklyn for a date with the suddenly good Nets. In this scenario the Mavericks are 4-4 SU this season, it’ll be interesting to see if they play both Doncic and Irving following their recovery from injuries. In head-to-head meetings Dallas has enjoyed quite a lot of success winning 7 of the last 8, but they’ve had issues covering the spread, doing so once in the last 5 meetings. In games played at Barclays Center they’re 9-3 SU in their last 12 visits, optimism will be on a high coming into tonight’s game.

After 3 wins in 4 games, the Nets were brought back down to Earth a bit last night as the Golden State Warriors held them to just 98 points in an 11-point defeat. Ben Simmons missed yet another game, so the defeat can easily be attributed to that as the Nets reverted back to playing poorly on the offensive end. Simmons will be a game-time decision here, but I think he will play after skipping last night’s game. His presence should lift the Nets’ offensive production, plus he matches up size-wise pretty well with Luka Doncic here, that’s another thing worth keeping an eye on. Lonnie Walker IV and Cameron Johnson are both questionable after leaving the game against Golden State with hamstring and groin injuries.

Dallas Mavericks Point Spread Prediction

Dallas Mavericks -2.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Dallas won the first meeting of the season 125-120, but that game was played way back in October. The two teams have gone through quite a lot since that game, I would still favor the Mavs here. Doncic had 49 points and 10 rebounds in that win, as good as Ben Simmons is, I don’t think there’s a single player in the NBA that can guard Doncic. Give me the Mavs as road favorites.

Mavericks vs Nets Total Points Prediction: Over 234.5

Over 234.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Neither team has a winning record when playing on 2nd nights of a back-to-back, but their games have been high scoring in those scenario. Dallas has over 234.5 points in 6 of their 8 games on no rest, for Brooklyn this has happened in 3 of their 6 games. I expect both defenses to take it easier here, after all we are past the mid-way point of the season and nobody wants to get injured at this point. Brooklyn has gone over in 14 of 26 home games, the Mavs are 12-10-1 on the O/U away from home. The two teams are also neck and neck over their last 10 games when it comes to offensive rating, posting 117 and 116.9 points per 100 possessions, ranking 13th and 14th respectively. Dallas has the worst defensive rating during this stretch, allowing 123.8 points per 100 possessions. Their last 5 of 6 opponents have all scored 120+ points and with all the firepower on the Nets’ roster, I can’t see that trend stopping here. Let’s go with the over.
