This season we’re also going to be looking at betting lines on Dallas games if they look interesting. Let’s jump right into things!
Dallas Mavericks at Charlotte Hornet (+7)
As the saying goes, “good teams win, great teams cover”. Well, thus far this preseason the Mavs have covered the spread in both of their wins and face a Hornet team that will be without Terry Rozier, Gordon Heyward, and Kelly Oubre. Reports out of Dallas indicate this will be a dress rehearsal and starters will play their usual minutes. At full health, Dallas is a better team and should beat a depleted Hornets team.
THE PICK - Mavericks -7
Over/Under – 219.5
Because we don’t believe in betting under, stay as far away from this as possible.
DFS Value of the Night - If starters are going to play heavy minutes you have to put Luka($8,800) in your lineup. We would also recommend adding Tim Hardaway Jr. at $4,800 and James Bouknight at $4,900. The Hornet rookie could see some extended run in hopes of furthering his development. He can score in bunches and could return a nice return on investment.
