The word “rivalry” seems to be a saturated term in the sports world. While the true definition can be debated, there is one thing that is certain between these two teams: they don’t like each other. After a thrilling seven-game playoff series, anytime these two teams play each other, it seems to make for must-see TV. While the Suns are one of the best teams at home, they have a losing record on the road at 4-5. Missing their floor general Chris Paul due to injury might prove to be a big blow for a road team that is coming into American Airlines Center with a crowd that is going to be LOUD for this game. Give me the Mavs -3.
Deandre Ayton Over 10.5 rebounds (-125)
Ayton’s line to have a double-double is currently favored at -170 so this is excellent value here at -125 for the rebound side alone.
Luka Doncic Over 2.5 3’s (-135)
He loves to jack them up at home. I could see him setting the tone and attempting four or five in the first half alone.
Play of the day
Luka Doncic over 31.5 points (-115)
I don’t have the credentials for locker room access so I can’t confirm if Luka has a calendar but if he does, this game would be circled. Angry Luka likes to score points to win us bets and winning bets makes us happy. Science says opposites attract and science can’t be wrong, right?
