The Pacers and Mavericks enter the final game of Summer League in hopes of potentially making the semifinals with a 3-1 record.

Both teams have shut down its key contributors, paving way for rookies and undrafted free agents to take center stage. Jarace Walker has had a strong showing in Las Vegas and will look to guide Indiana to another win on Friday after the team lost its first to the Thunder earlier this week.

Here are the odds for Friday's matchup.

  • Mavericks: +2.5 (-110)
  • Pacers: -2.5 (-110)


  • Mavericks: +130
  • Pacers: -145

Mavericks vs. Pacers prediction and pick

The Mavericks are sitting its star guard for Summer League, 2022 second round pick Jaden Hardy, which is going to be a big blow to the team's offense.

Hardy averaged 23 points per game during his three game summer league stint, and the lack of ball handlers is going to be a tough pill to swallow for this Mavericks roster.

Meanwhile, the Pacers may not have Benedict Mathurin, Andrew Nembhard or Isaiah Jackson anymore, but the team has capable bucket getters like Isaiah Wong and Jarace Walker on hand, who competed with the Thunder on Wednesday despite being shorthanded.

Indiana's depth is more proven to date, I'll trust them to get it done and improve to 3-1.

PICK: Pacer -2.5 (-110)
