Utah and Dallas will face off in Game 6 of their first-round playoff series. The score in this match is 3-2 to Dallas’ advantage. Will the Mavericks win the series? Let’s make a few bets at once.
No chances for Utah
Game 5 was a flop for the Jazz. Quin Snyder’s squad struggled against the return of Luka Doncic and Jason Kidd’s superb defense, falling by 25 points, 77-102. After such a thrashing, we’re not sure Utah has a shot at even a Game 7, much alone a series victory.
Dallas is a threat for all contenders
If the Mavericks advance, they will face Phoenix, one of the season’s top favorites. And, as the Utah series shows, they have a good chance of success there. Dallas finished the regular season ranked second in defensive efficiency, while the Mavericks’ attack is led by the brilliant Luka Doncic. The Slovenian hit 50 percent from the field, scored 33 points, grabbed 13 rebounds, and gave out five assists in Game 5 of the series against Utah.
- Utah: Udoka Azubuike will not play. Trent Forrest is questionable;
- Dallas: Tim Hardaway will not play.
The score in the series is 3-2 in favor of Dallas.
Expert Betting Tips
Game 5 of the series demonstrated the true socioeconomic disparity between Dallas and Utah. The Jazz is in desperate need of significant adjustments since the squad looks to have reached a plateau and is no longer able to progress. On the other hand, the Mavericks are on the verge of becoming a Western Conference powerhouse. As a result, the Texans will almost certainly win Game 6 of the series. Maybe not by a 20-point margin as in game five, but close.
Prediction: Mavericks to win the series.
- W2 for 1.90;
- W2+TU (210.5) for 3.60;
