Mavericks vs Hawks ATS Pick: Mavericks -2½

It is hard to have a lot of faith in either of these teams. Both teams have lost three straight games heading into this matchup.

The Hawks are dealing with significant injuries with two starters listed as questionable in Young and Clint Capela. Overall, we’re riding with Doncic’s scoring against a Hawks defense that is like that famous meme with the security guard barely patting down people on their way into the venue.

Bet online the Mavericks to cover the spread.


Mavericks vs Hawks Best Prop Bet: Trae Young Over 39.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-118)

You’re going to want to check the injury report before tipoff for this bet. Young loves playing against Doncic as Atlanta orchestrated a draft night trade with Dallas in 2018 sending the star to Big D.

The deal has not exactly aged well for the Hawks. Assuming Young plays, I like him to go over his total points, rebounds, and assists (combined) in the NBA odds.
