How to bet the Mavericks vs Hornets preseason game

We take a look at the spread, over/under, and DFS plays

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Charlotte Hornets Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

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.

PREDICTION- ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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.
