Why should you bet on the Mavericks?

Frankly, I’m not betting on the Mavericks to beat anybody straight up right now. The Cavaliers didn’t even bother to play LeBron James against Dallas, and the Cavaliers were still able to beat Dallas. Yes, the Mavericks tried their best to erase an 18-point deficit in the fourth period, but they fell again. They don’t rebound, and they don’t play defense when it matters the most, which is why they’re about to go from being one of the surprises in the league to the lottery.

Why should you put your money on Golden State?

Golden State suffered one of their biggest losses of the year in Dallas, back when Stephen Curry went down with an ankle injury. That embarrassment is just one thing that you can expect the Warriors to motivate them, along with the chance to pile up statistical glory. Against the Knicks, the Warriors won their record 50th straight game at home, and Curry added 34 points to his total, knocking down 8 of 13 three-point shots before sitting out for the entire fourth period.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I don’t expect the Mavericks to offer the Warriors much in the way of meaningful resistance. I’m picking the Warriors to win, 122-103.
