Against the spread (ATS) pick

The Mavericks have won three in a row but are just 2-6 ATS in their last eight games and might be without Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis, Josh Richardson, and Maxi Kleber tonight.

Doncic would obviously be the biggest blow for Dallas as he leads the team with 28.5 points and 8.8 assists per game. The 22-year-old phenom played through an elbow injury in Saturday’s win against the Lakers but was in obvious discomfort. 

That said, Dallas is sixth in the Western Conference standings and will desperately want to hold on to that spot and avoid the play-in games. Don’t be surprised to see Doncic tough it out and play tonight because the Mavs can’t afford to let easily winnable games like this go to waste.

The Kings are just 2-11 SU and 4-8-1 ATS in their last 13 games and are 25th in the NBA in average scoring margin at minus-4.3 points per game.

While the status of Doncic is up in the air, the status of the Kings best player, De’Aaron Fox, is crystal clear—and it’s not good for Sacramento bettors. Fox leads the team with 25.2 points and 7.2 assists per game but has been placed in the league’s health and safety protocols and will be out until at least May 4.

The Mavs lost by 14 points to Sacramento last week but will be in a good spot for revenge against the Kings, who are on the tail end of a back-to-back tonight. Take the Dallas to win and cover. 

PREDICTION: Dallas -6 (-110)

Covers NBA betting analysis

Over/Under pick

The Over/Under is a tough one to figure out because the Mavs have been one of the best Under bets this season while the Kings have been cashing Overs. Dallas is 21-10 to the Under in their last 31 games while Sacramento is 19-9 O/U in its previous 28 games at home.

That said, the Mavs are 9-2 to the Over in their last 11 away contests against teams with a losing record at home, while the Kings are 6-0 to the Over in their last six games without rest. 

When these teams met up last week in Dallas, they combined for 228 points with the Kings going off for 121. The Mavs scored just 107 points in that game but expect them to perform much better tonight against a Kings team that ranks dead-last in the league in nearly every defensive metric and surrenders a whopping 120.1 ppg at home.

Even with injuries piling up for both teams, we’re leaning to the Over 223.5.

PREDICTION: Over 223.5 (-110)

Player prop pick

With Fox out of commission, the Kings will turn to rookie Tyrese Haliburton to man the point. The 21-year-old has impressed in his debut season, averaging 12.8 points and 5.1 assists per game despite starting only 16 contests.

Haliburton logged 37 minutes in Fox’s absence last night, scoring 24 points and dropping eight dimes. He also had seven assists in just 27 minutes when Fox missed another contest back in February. Take the Over 6.5 on Haliburton’s assists total today.

PREDICTION: Tyrese Haliburton Assists Over 6.5 (-115)

Mavericks vs Kings betting card
