The Golden State Warriors ran the Mavericks off the court in Game 1, and look to do the same in Game 2. Yet, Luka Doncic and the Mavericks have been in this position before.

Game 2 is set to be a good matchup, but let’s dive into the player-specific angles. 

Here are three prop bets for Mavericks-Warriors Game 2, with odds via WynnBET.

Best Prop Bets For Mavericks vs. Warriors

  • Jordan Poole OVER 16.5 Points (-115)
  • Maxi Kleber OVER 7.5 Points (+100)
  • Dorian Finney-Smith OVER 5.0 Rebounds (+100)

Jordan Poole OVER 16.5 Points (-115)

As long as Poole’s point total is set at this line, I’m going to take the over.

Poole is a natural scorer and is coming off his best game since Game 3 of the Memphis series. He was efficient in Game 1 and still has a lot of room for improvement. If Poole can start knocking down threes, this line will be moved up instantly.

Tonight, Poole might even get more playing time if the game is closer than it was in Game 1. That volume plus an increase in outside shooting is a recipe for success. 

Maxi Kleber OVER 7.5 Points (+100)

Kleber’s line is low and has a lot of value at plus-money. While he’s only hit this in two of his last five, the matchup works for him. Kleber is the big the Mavericks want to keep on the floor to give them a size advantage over the Warriors. His shooting will keep him on the floor and make him a threat for Luka to pass to.

If Kleber can stay out of foul trouble, he will be on the floor much longer and get decent opportunities. 

Dorian Finney-Smith OVER 5.0 Rebounds (+100)

I don’t think this is going to be the best offensive series for Finney-Smith, but he can do a lot of work on the glass.

The Warriors are a good rebounding team, but they are small. Finney-Smith is going to play at the four or five in nearly every lineup he’s involved in. His offensive rebounding potential is high against a smaller Warriors team.

Additionally, with the amount of threes Golden State takes, there’s a lot of opportunities for Smith to get long rebounds away from the basket.
