The Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks will face off in a major game on Tuesday night. 

Dallas won the last meeting between these two teams, but the Warriors are favored by 3.5 points at home at WynnBET

I have my eye on a few prop bets in this game, as two of the league’s best players face off with Steph Curry and Luka Doncic:

Best Prop Bets for Mavericks vs. Warriors

  • Luka Doncic OVER 8.5 Assists (+100)
  • First Quarter UNDER 54.5 Points (-110)
  • Maxi Kleber UNDER 5.5 Rebounds (-125)

Luka Doncic OVER 8.5 Assists (+100)

It’s no secret that Doncic is one of the best players in the NBA, but he’s been stuffing the stat sheet even more than usual since returning from an injury earlier this season.

Doncic has brought a new level to the Dallas offense, as he continues to open up things for his teammates on that end of the floor.  

Over his last 11 games, Doncic is averaging 25.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 9.2 assists per game. He’s also cleared 6.5 rebounds in all 11 games and 13 straight dating back to before his ankle injury. 

I like getting him at plus odds to go over this number against Golden State. 

First Quarter UNDER 54.5 Points (-110)

The Mavericks and Warriors combine to average 55 points per game in the first quarter this season, but as we saw in their first matchup, this could be a low-scoring game. 

Golden State is No. 1 in the NBA in defensive rating and Dallas is No. 4, and Dallas also plays at the second slowest pace in the NBA. 

There’s a chance Doncic or Curry explode for a big quarter, but I think both of these teams stick to their roots and defend on Tuesday. 

Maxi Kleber UNDER 5.5 Rebounds (-125)

The Mavericks big man is averaging 5.7 rebounds per game this season, but now he’s facing a Warriors team that is top five in the league in rebounding percentage this season. 

Kleber has failed to clear this line in five straight and seven of his last eight, so don’t expect him to bounce back on Tuesday night.
