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

With a tough stretch of games on the horizon, tonight’s game is close to a must-win.

NBA: Utah Jazz at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

After a 129-113 loss to the Kings on November 19th, I predicted that the Mavericks would fall below .500 by New Years Day. Since that tweet, the Mavericks have gone 2-3 and now stand at 11-8. They have three winnable games in the next 5 days including tonight’s game against the Jazz, Friday’s game against the Trailblazers, and Monday’s game against the Grizzlies.

After that, things get tough as the year comes to an end. They’ll have away games against the Nuggets, Suns, Wolves, and Warriors and host the Lakers, Wolves, Clippers, and Cavs. Things could get ugly in a hurry and avoiding a letdown tonight is critical. Let’s look at tonight’s game and try to monetize our uneasiness and anxiety.

Game Details

Fixture: Dallas Mavericks vs Utah Jazz| NBA 2023-2024

Date and Time: Tuesday, December 6th, 2023; 7:30 PM CST

Venue: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX.

Outcome Odds

  • Spread: Dallas -11.5(-115)
  • O/U 233.5
  • Mavs ML: -570

There is absolutely no reason the Mavericks should be double digit favorites over anyone. Yes, Lauri Markannen, Kelly Olynk, and Jordan Clarkson are all out, I still would stay far away from that spread.

Player Props

  • Collin Sexton over 14.5 Points(-135)
  • Luka Doncic over 8.5 assists(+105)
  • Collin Sexton over 20.5 Pts/Rebs/Asst (-105)

If you’re reading this, you could probably score double digit points against the Mavericks defense. Sexton will have the sort of green light you can see from space. For Luka, I anticipate the Jazz will try to slow him down by throwing bodies at him. That should lead to a ton of open shots for our role players.

Play of the Day

  • Luka Doncic over 47.5 Pts/Rebs/Asst(-115)

If you read any of my picks and I don’t recommend this prop, just know I was kidnapped and wrote this column under duress.
