Suns vs Mavericks Over/Under Pick: Over 243½

Our NBA picks include the over 243½, as we expect the defensives to be average at best.

The Mavericks’ defense isn’t great, but they score enough points to keep them competitive in the Southwest Division.

Scoring has come easily for the Mavericks recently, including scoring 146 points in a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

When they play as the favorite, the over cashes with good consistency, and the Suns are no strangers to putting up big totals.

If they start slowly, expect NBA second-half lines to have a big number for the final 24 minutes.


Suns vs Mavericks ATS Pick: Mavericks -3

Our BetUS sportsbook has a generous line of Mavericks -3, which is worth snapping up.

They have played excellently over the last few weeks, including wins over the Thunder, Knicks, and Nets.

That form stacks up nicely against a Suns team that has been firing but is too inconsistent.

The Mavericks look to chase down the Pelicans for the division lead, and beating the Suns comfortably would be an ideal way to kick off post-All-Star break proceedings.


Suns vs Mavericks Player Prop Pick: Luka Doncic Over 31½ Points (-130)

Doncic is a man on a mission. He averages 34.2 points per game, and we expect him to score plenty of points against the Suns.

He looked relaxed at the All-Star game, and he didn’t expend too much energy. He should be fit and ready to fire on Thursday.

Doncic is our choice for a player prop bet here since scoring over 31½ points isn’t tough for someone of his talent.


Suns vs Mavericks Prediction

Dallas Mavericks 127, Phoenix Suns 120



Questions Of The Day

Will Luka Doncic or Kevin Durant score more points?
