DALLAS MAVERICKS vs OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER PREDICTIONS GAME 2: PREDICTION AND BETTING ODDS

If you’re a Mavs fan, your stress level is pretty high after that Game 1 loss at OKC, as your team simply got ran over. Luka Doncic is clearly bothered by that knee sprain which limited his mobility in the Clippers series, some analysts have even gone so far in say that he should rest a game or two in this series to recover. I’m not sure that’s a good idea, the Thunder could go up by 2 or 3 games by the time he is back. Kyrie Irving will have to step up and be way better than the 20 points he delivered in the opener, without their two superstars combining for 80-ish points I can’t see Dallas being competitive here. They’ve recorded just 1 win in the last 6 meetings, plus in their last 5 visits to OKC they’ve covered only once.

Not winning the MVP award was a blow for OKC fans and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but I don’t think that’ll have a negative effect on the young superstar. In fact, I think it’ll be the opposite. SGA had one of the historically great offensive seasons, I’m sure as a team player he would rather win the championship as opposed to getting a individual award. He shot just 42% in Game 1 en route to his 29 points, but with Doncic’s limited mobility on defense he should be able to continue racking up the numbers in this series. The Thunder just look like a more well rounded team at this point. They can score from distance as well as on the inside, plus the rebounding advantage is clearly on their side after they won that battle 52-39 on Tuesday.

OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER POINT SPREAD PREDICTION

The spread has gone up by just 2 points compared to Game 1, I still like the Thunder here. They’re yet to lose a game this postseason run, Dallas first needs to get healthy and then we can talk about them getting a game or two in this series. Back OKC to cover at home.

DALLAS MAVERICKS vs OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER GAME 2 TOTAL POINTS: UNDER 218.5

Surely the Mavs cannot have another rough game like they did on Tuesday, right? Well, I’m not so sure about that. Oklahoma City has by far the best defensive rating this postseason, holding opponents to just 94.8 points per 100 possessions in 5 games played. They’re doing that while playing the 5th fastest pace, so it’s not like they’re lolling teams to sleep here. The Mavs offensive production has average at best this postseason, consistency has eluded them on that end for the most part. They’re scoring just 113.6 points per 100 possessions, way lower than the 117 points they were averaging during the regular season. Backing the under looks like a solid bet here. It has cashed in the Mavs’ last 14 of 20 games and in OKC’s last 5 of 6 outings. Not being able to keep up with the young and springy Thunder will cause the Mavs to tighten up their defense, I still see the Thunder winning and covering in those circumstances, but it won’t be a high scoring game like it was in Game 1. Back the under here.
