Opening Odds Analysis

Brooklyn opened as a 2.5-point favorite early on Saturday morning and was quickly bet up to Brooklyn -3.5. The total for this matchup is set at 238.5 points. The home team is 4-0 SU and ATS in the last four meetings between the Mavericks and Nets.

Dallas News & Notes

Luka Doncic had a rare off-night on Thursday night against the Philadelphia 76ers recording just 19 points, four assists, and three rebounds in the team’s 111-97 loss to Philadelphia. The Mavericks were 6-1 SU over their previous seven games and 3-1 ATS over their previous four before Thursday’s setback as 5-point road underdogs. Doncic is averaging 30.5 points, 8.4 assists, and 7.2 rebounds in February.

Kristaps Porzingis is listed as questionable to return for Saturday’s game. Porzingis has been out since the 14th with a back injury and was averaging 22.8 points and 8.5 rebounds in February before being sidelined. The 25-year-old center was a full participant in practice on Friday and coach Rick Carlisle has suggested he will likely return against the Nets barring any setbacks.

Brooklyn News & Notes

The latest injury report on Kevin Durant revealed that the Nets’ leading scorer will be out until at least the NBA All-Star break with his hamstring injury. Most teams would be hit hard by losing a player of Durant’s caliber for an extended period of time, but Brooklyn is 7-0 SU and ATS with four outright upsets in its last seven games without him. And the Nets aren’t just surviving without Durant; they’ve won most of those seven games comfortably by an average of 10.8 points per game.

Kyrie Irving and James Harden are working extremely well together. In their most recent outing, Irving had 27 points and nine assists and Harden had 20 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in a 129-92 blowout win over the Orlando Magic. Harden is averaging 29.3 points and 10.7 rebounds per game over Brooklyn’s last six games.

Betting Pick: Brooklyn -3.5

The Mavericks have been playing well of late, but Brooklyn is playing at a whole different level. Bettors should continue to ride this hot streak until Brooklyn shows any signs of slowing down.
