Mavericks Odds: How to bet tonight’s game against the Rockets

Tonight’s game could be a rock fight

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Los Angeles Clippers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

There’s already a lot in our game preview about what to expect from the Dallas Mavericks facing off against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night. But the betting angle brings a few more thoughts and how you can take advantage of them to win a little money. Let’s get to it.

Game Details

Fixture: Houston Rockets at Dallas Mavericks | NBA 2023-2024

Date and Time: Tuesday, November 28th, 2023; 7:30pm CST

Venue: American Airlines Arena

Outcome Odds

  • Spread: Mavericks -2.5(-108)
  • O/U: 235(-110)
  • Mavs ML: -135

Trying to guess how the Mavericks will perform is essentially a coin flip at this point. For that reason, I’d stay away from the spread and moneyline. Now, typically, I have a rule that I won’t bet the under in a game I plan on watching. I may break that rule tonight. If I am going to subject myself to a rock fight, I might as well profit off of my pain and agony.

Player Props

  • Alperen Sengun Over 20.5 Points(-120)
  • Dillon Brooks Over 12.5Points(-110)
  • Luka Doncic Over 29.5 Points(-130)

DraftKings is going to have to pry my phone from my cold dead hands before I’ll stop taking the over on Luka’s point totals. I don’t know how he’s performed but I can tell you it doesn’t matter. In my mind, death, taxes, and Luka to score 30. Other than that, I am preparing myself for pain. Sengun must’ve attended several of Hakeem Olajuwon’s big man camps because he has quickly developed into a menace on the offensive end. He should feast against our frontline. As far as Dillon Brooks, I want you to do something for me. Close your eyes and envision what nightmare fuel in today’s game would look like. It looks a lot like Dillon Brooks hitting his 3rd three of the quarter and trash talking Luka on his way to the sideline after a panicked Kidd awakes from his coma and calls a timeout, doesn’t it? The Brooks over is an emotional hedge.

Play of the Day

  • Luka Doncic Over 47.5 Pts+Reb+Asst(-115)

If you’re familiar with my picks, you knew this was coming.
